Yonatan Netanyahu – a hero

I have just been rereading the excellent “Self Portrait of a hero:  The letters of Jonathan Netanyahu”

It is quite a remarkable collection of Yoni’s letters

As Herman Wouk writes “From the age of 17 until a few days before he fell leading the rescue at Entebbe, Jonathan Netanyahu wrote a series of letters that embody a stunning self-portrait of the growth of a hero.  Yoni’s correspondence is the other side of the coin to Anne Frank’s diary – she the unbowed victim, he the fearless fighter – together bearing witness to the greatness of human nature in extremis.
