Watch this for the Beauty and Brilliance, and learn what Real Courage is...

I have read both "The Letters of Jonathan Netanyahu" and "Entebbe...a Defining Moment in the War on Terrorism."
They are wonderful reads, and "Follow Me" encapsulates the amazing aspects of both books.
Yoni was a truly gifted young man, mature beyond his years. His love of family and country is so rich, I only wish it could be emulated by the people of our own country, especially the younger generations.
The story moves at will from one time frame to another, yet it is seamless in its beauty.
There are comments from his brothers, and a rare appearance by his father, Ben Zion. All are very touching, including comments by other members of 'The Unit' that Yoni commanded at the last.
The beautiful music, as well as the scenic beauty of both Israel and the Boston area, add another element of the rare brilliance that a
documentary can achieve.
I highly recommend this to everyone who has hope for the US...I know there are people like Yoni who care enough to make a difference.
Then I recommend reading the books to get a glimpse of the rest of Yoni's life, one that he proved was worth living.

I would also like to thank Amazon for making this amazing story available on Prime Video...I am so grateful!!

I must say it was a moving documentary and stirred mixed emotions in me. Well written with a good mix of personal information along with the necessary military footage to really let the audience know the man. Some men are born for greatness and with that greatness, often comes sacrifice.

Amazing story of an amazing man. The example that Israel has shown the world since its existence has been unequaled. The dedication of this man to preserve his country and his people is unbelievable. His family also incredible, supportive, and understanding of his mission. Sad, tear-jerker, but inspiring at the same time. Well done documentary as well, very interesting layout and never boring.

This was the best documentary I have seen all year. It is the modern history of Israel through the eyes of one of it's most important soldiers who gave his life trying to free his people. May his memory forever be a blessing.

Wow, loved it for the history and the personal gift that this man bequeaths to any who follow. What a sacrifice and a sadness for all who knew him. Read the reviews that reveal what I have not in so little time. Worthwhile movie.
