The secrets behind Mossad, the world’s most respected and enigmatic Secret Service Organization

The secrets behind Mossad, the world’s most respected and enigmatic Secret Service Organization

This book tells what should have been known and isn't - that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognised physical strength. - Shimon Peres, President of Israel

Mossad vividly brings alive a boots-on-the-ground approach to the most dangerous missions of the 60-year history of the world-renowned security agency including: the capture of Eichmann in Argentina and smuggling him out of Buenos Aires as an El Al crewman, the eradication of Black September, the destruction of the Syrian nuclear facility and the elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists.

Mossad also reveals in dramatic detail how Israelis purloined the text of Kruschchev’s secret speech denouncing Stalin’s atrocities, and follows the career of Meir Dagan from his ‘James Bond’ days as an Israeli commando through his memorable career as head of Mossad.

Reviews

This book tells what should have been known and isn't - that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognised physical strength.

Shimon Peres, President of Israel

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

The title says it all; the 21 chapters provide background and details to some of the highest profile operations of Mossad since 1971. The operations cover an amazing range. The authors also highlight that despite meticulous planning, outcomes are sometimes determined by good luck and circumstance.
