Thread: 7 Days in Entebbe

  1. #41
    Having the commandos pack Kalashnikov-type carbines is the historically correct version of events.

    It’s been a while since I read up on it, and I *think* a couple of guys carried Galils, but the AK was the prevalent weapon of choice on the raid.


    For a highly biased, but close-to-the-source account, read “Entebbe” by Iddo Netanyahu.

    McRaven's "Spec Ops" (excellent) also mentions a mix of Galils and AKs in the Entebbe case study chapter. He interviewed some of the Israelis, and mentions many of the commandos preferred the AK.
