5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic but very real espionage
This book by Micheal Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal is easily one of the best books written about Mossad.(see also Samuel Katz's SOLDIER SPIES and Gordon Thomas' GIDEON'S SPIES).The great plus with this book is that it's up to date.The book is very enjoyable to read because it's well written with a focus on the personalities as well as details of operations around the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather dry & boring!
Tends to be rather a list of what happened :
John did this
Jane did that
Then they went home
Some years later they got a medal each!
Even the Eichmann abduction is a dry list of the events! There was no effort made to dramatise in any way. It ended up being somewhat boring!
As a Jew I was disappointed that an important part of my history was...

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic but very real espionage, 30 Jan. 2013

This book by Micheal Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal is easily one of the best books written about Mossad.(see also Samuel Katz's SOLDIER SPIES and Gordon Thomas' GIDEON'S SPIES).The great plus with this book is that it's up to date.The book is very enjoyable to read because it's well written with a focus on the personalities as well as details of operations around the world-thus avoiding a dry factual history of this covert organisation.It deserves the accolade of 'an International Bestseller'
Well worth the price of the book.Anyone interested in middle east affairs should get it.

True, it is the Israeli side of the story but these feats and exploits are amazing, reads like a superb action novel but is real life history.

5.0 out of 5 stars so if you hate Israel and believe it should not exist, 21 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is very interesting, no other way to put it. Plenty of (I think) new information on various different operations undertaken by the state of Israel. It is written with a certain tone that is bound to irritate those people who are vehemently against all things Israeli, so if you hate Israel and believe it should not exist, don't read it. If you just like reading non fiction historical books about the modern era, this will be an interesting read. Even if you know next to nothing about the middle east (and beyond) its still worth a read. My favourite chapters were the operation to evacuate the Ethiopian Jews. The lengths they went to were extraordinary. There is a bit of self criticism in here also, pertaining to the recklessness with which Mossad sometimes managed its own spies. Its a very good read. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 20 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderfully comprehensive book about the famous Mossad, highly recommended. I came away with the highest opinion of some truly brave men and women who defend their country against all who would mean her harm. Extremely well written, and it was difficult to put down once I began it. The authors really know their subject.
