In the early hours of 5 September 1972 the perimeter fence surrounding the Olympic Village in Munich was scaled by terrorists. Their target was the temporary home of the Israeli Olympic team, and within 24 hours 17 men were dead. One Day in September is the definitive account of this modern tragedy. Simon Reeve explains what happened on that terrible day - and then reveals the full extent of Israel's covert revenge operation, known ever since as 'Wrath of God'. Detailing one of the most significant terror attacks of recent times, One Day in September also tells the wider story of the event that thrust the Palestinian cause into the world spotlight, set the tone for decades of conflict in the Middle East, and launched a new era of international terrorism.
