"Two insiders reveal some of the more fantastic episodes in the history of Israeli intelligence operations around the world. A quick and easy read, this book focuses on the operational details and personalities behind the famed Mossad's record of assassination, kidnapping, sabotage, and clandestine surveillance."--Publishers Weekly
From the Back Cover
The Mossad is widely recognized today as the best intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in secrecy. Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service unveils the defi ning and most dangerous operations that have shaped Israel and the world at large from the agency's more than sixty-year history, among them: the capture of Adolf Eichmann, the eradication of Black September, the destruction of the Syrian nuclear facility, and the elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists.
Through intensive research and exclusive interviews with Israeli leaders and Mossad agents, authors Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal re-create these missions in riveting detail, vividly bringing to life the heroic operatives who risked everything in the face of unimaginable danger. In the words of Shimon Peres, president of Israel, this gripping, white-knuckle read "tells what should have been known and isn't that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognized physical strength."" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description

Well worth the price of the book.Anyone interested in middle east affairs should get it.
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 turned into a very dry account of the facts - very like a college text book!

Well, if you think any Israeli state sponsored treatment of those it disapproves of is noble, legitimate and 'heroic' as one reviewer puts it, you will love this book. Read morePublished 4 months ago by alistair
