Question 648: The audacity! The...the...what's the word I'm looking for? [QUESTION GOES UNCRACKED]

Connect maadi. Give me all that you think is relevant. Explain the pictures.


The pictures are - a jackal - a machine gun - a cap similar to the one worn by Charles de Gaulle

The connect is, " The Day of the Jackal", a novel by Frederick Forsyth which was later made into a film with the same name.

The book revolves around the attempted assassination of General de Gaulle by a hired assassin known as the Jackal. The  book opens with an accurate re-enactment of the attempt on the life of President de Gaulle led by Jean-Marie Bastien-Thiry. The rest of the book however is fictitious in nature.

I'm surprised no one cracked it.
