This selection recounts "Operation Babylon," Israel's daring 1981 raid on Iraq's nuclear reactor at al-Tuwaitha. This successful operation is credited with preventing Saddam Hussein from acquiring the capacity to produce nuclear weapons. This techno-thriller begs to be made into a movie. The narration by Adam Grupper is in the dramatic action mode, appropriately evoking the boldness and self-effacing heroism of the Israel Air Force pilots and re-creating moment by moment the actual tension of the mission as it unfolds. Unfortunately, the story today, given circumstances in the Middle East, is more relevant than ever. J.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
