This book by journalist Rodger Claire describes the preemptive strike by the Israeli air force that destroyed the Osirak nuclear reactor at al-Tuwaitha, Iraq in 1981. The book includes information from the Israeli intelligence reports that led to the raid, as well as details of the planning of the mission and its execution by eight modified F-16 fighter planes from the Etzion airbase on the Sinai Peninsula. In researching the book, the author interviewed many individuals associated with the mission, including pilots and commanders.
