Famous Five - Enid Blyton. We weren't well off and I begged and begged for this set of hard covers when they came out in this edition. I took care of them each time I read them like they were made of gold and to this day, except for a little yellowing, they're like new and I love them still.
On September 5, 1972 a day before the Olympic Games were to begin, eight Palestinian terrorists entered the Olympic Village and seized eleven members of the Israeli Olympic team. Two of the hostages were able to wound two of their captors before they were killed. The terrorists requested the release of 234 Palestinians that were being held in Israel.
