Munich, the 2005 Spielberg Movie.

I just watched "Munich" and saw it is "Based on true events".

Does anyone know the source material for the screenplay?

Israeli assassins shooting it out with KGB agents in Athens, murdering a Dutch hitwoman in the Netherlands, the PLO's most wanted agents living it up in Germany, French mercenaries playing all side against each other by selling information to all of the above...

It just seems so improbable.

I was 3 or 4 years old when the movie takes place (1972-1973) so I have no memory, but did the public hear about any of this, as apparently in Israel (according to the movie) this was open knowledge.

Does anyone have a good place to read more about these events?
