Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“This book tells what should have been known and isn’t—that Israel’s hidden force is as formidable as its recognized physical strength.” (Shimon Peres, President of Israel)

“Mossad reads like a spectacular spy novel, and contains the real stories from one of the world’s premiere intelligence agencies. It’s worth reading.” (Chuck Hagel, U.S. Secretary of Defense)

“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)

“Action-packed accounts of the missions of one of the world’s most effective and mysterious intelligence services.” (Kirkus)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Mossad is universally recognised as the greatest intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in a thick veil of secrecy. Many of its enthralling feats are still unknown; most of its heroes remain unnamed. From the kidnapping of Eichmann in Argentina and the systematic tracking down of those responsible for the Munich massacre to lesser-known episodes of astonishing espionage, this extraordinary book describes the dramatic, largely secret history of Mossad and the Israeli intelligence community. Examining the covert operations, the targeted assassinations and the paramilitary activities within and outside Israel, Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal detail the great stories of Mossad and reveal the personal tales of some of the best Mossad agents and leaders to serve their country.

Brilliant descriptions and well presented exploits of a largely successful intelligence. The book gripped my attention from the opening chapter and retained it all the way to the end. It basically wrapped up a relaxing weekend, which started with Triple Agent Double Cross, another interesting book of exploits. I like stories of gusto.

Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service by Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal

"Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service" is the fascinating history of Israel's greatest defense against terrorism, the Mossad. An earlier version of this book was published in Israel in 2010 and broke record sales. This book highlights the greatest missions of the Mossad, as well as some of the most noteworthy failures that have tarnished the agency's image. Author Michael Bar-Zohar and Israel's foremost TV personality Nissim Mishal join forces to bring readers insightful accounts into the most dangerous operations for the sake of defense of Israel. This mesmerizing 400-page book is composed of twenty-one chapters: 1. King of Shadows, 2. Funerals in Tehran, 3. A Hanging in Baghdad, 4. A Soviet Mole and a Body at Sea, 5. "Oh, That? It's Khrushchev's Speech...", 6. "Bring Eichmann Dead or Alive!", 7. Where is Yossele?, 8. A Nazi Hero at the Service of the Mossad, 9. Our Main in Damascus, 10. "I Want a MIG-21!", 11. Those Who'll Never Forget, 12. The Quest for the Red Prince, 13. The Syrian Virgins, 14. "Today We'll Be at War!", 15. A Honey Trap for the Atom Spy, 16. Saddam's Supergun, 17. Fiasco in Amman, 18. From North Korea with Love, 19. Love and Death in the Afternoon, 20. The Cameras Were Rolling, and 21. From the Land of Queen of Sheba.

1. A well-researched and well-written book that is accessible for the masses. It's based on a large variety of sources, books, articles, and interviews.
2. Fascinating topic. It doesn't get much more interesting than espionage at the highest level.
3. Excellent format, each chapter is about a particular operation. Most chapters begin with a tease and proceed to the heart of story and eventually take you back to the tease in progress. Code names for each operation are also provided.
4. A quote that reaches to the heart of this book, "To protect civilians, the state needs sometimes to do things that are contrary to democratic behavior. It is true that in units like ours the outer limits can become blurred. That's why you must be sure that your people are of the best quality. The dirtiest actions should be carried out by the most honest men".
5. The real-life stories presented in this book cover a wide-range of fascinating operations: from eliminating terrorist groups, destroying a Syrian nuclear reactor, eliminating Iranian scientists, providing protection and transfer of Jewish people, the capture of Adolf Eichmann, the thwarting of plots, the exposure of crimes, saving a child with national implications, and even acquiring a's all here.
6. One of the best strengths of this book is the precise capturing of the Mossad leadership through the years. The authors do a wonderful job of describing the men and women behind these courageous operations and succinctly point out their major accomplishments and any shortcomings they may have had.
7. The politics behind espionage. Most apparent when things go wrong during an operation.
8. The planning behind some of these operations is of interest. So many layers involved in order to execute an operation. Everyone has a role and it has to be accomplished within a degree of precision otherwise the operation can unravel.
9. One of the boldest spies ever, Elie Cohen. One of my favorite chapters.
10. Unusual ties and relationships forged for desired results. As an example, the Mossad and the Moroccan secret service. Double agents.
11. Missions involving the capture of Nazis are always gripping such as Eichmann and "The Butcher of Riga".
12. The elimination of the organization "Black September" involved with the massacre of the Israeli athletes is one of the most riveting chapters I've ever read.
13. The retrieval of young Jews and Jewesses from Syria.
14. Who was the Angel? Find out.
15. The incidents that embarrassed the Mossad. The Fiasco in Amman is just astonishing...the things that can go wrong.
16. How priceless information turned into Syria's top-secret nuclear program.
17. The operation involving "The terrorist with nine lives".
18. The emotional retrieval of the Ethiopian Jews.
19. Excellent Bibliography and Sources.

1. Visual aids would have added immense value to this book. Timeline charts depicting the Mossad leadership and how it relates to the operations would have been helpful.
2. A photo insert section is included but I would have preferred the photos be inserted in the chapters that they belong in.
3. A chapter on espionage gadgets would have been welcomed.
4. A cast of characters per operation would have been very helpful.
5. The Kindle version did not take advantage of its ability to link notes and sources.
6. An appendix with a table of operations with code names would have added value.

In summary, this is a fascinating and topical book. Some of the operations read like a good spy novel, this is truly a riveting book. There are so many interesting operations, so many interesting's espionage at the highest level. My only negative of the book is the lack of illustrations or diagrams that could have added value. That being said, this is an excellent book on the history the greatest missions of the Mossad. I highly recommend it!

Mossad: The Great­est Mis­sions of the Israeli Secret Ser­vice by Michael Bar-Zohar and Nis­sim Mishal is a non-fictionbook by Israeli jour­nal­ists Michael Bar-Zohar and Nis­sim Mishal. The book recounts some of the great suc­cesses and fail­ures of the secret Israeli agency.

The book is divided into twenty two dis­tinct chap­ters, each one a story of its own. The oper­a­tions range from the com­plex assas­si­na­tions of Syr­ian gen­eral Muham­mad Suleiman, find­ing and assas­si­nat­ing rogue sci­en­tist Ger­ald Bull(he was devel­op­ing a super­gun for Sad­dam Hus­sein), the kid­nap­ping Nazi Adolf Eich­mann in Argentina and lur­ing Mordechai Vanunu out of Eng­land into Rome as to not suf­fer the wrath of Thatcher.

Even oper­a­tions which seem mun­dane, such as smug­gling out of the Soviet Union of Nikita Khrushchev's secret speech, or sneak­ing across the bor­der Jew­ish Syr­ian women (the Syr­ian brides) gets an air of rev­er­ence and com­plex­ity. Other chap­ters include a run down of the years Israel's great­est spy, Eli Cohen, spent in Syria as well as bring­ing the Jews of Ethiopia to Israel.

The chap­ter about the elim­i­na­tion of Black September's lead­er­ship does not fail to men­tion the inno­cent Moroc­can waiter, whose only crime was resem­bling Ali Has­san Salameh, one of the Mossad's tar­get. One of the biggest fail­ures of the Mossad that we know of.

I am famil­iar with Pro­fes­sor Bar-Zohar's writ­ings, he is a lead­ing Israeli writer on espi­onage. As most of his books, Mossad is also a fast paced, fas­ci­nat­ing look behind thick cur­tains which have been pre­vi­ously closed. The authors' analy­sis and insight are mes­mer­iz­ing and usu­ally spot on, while the new infor­ma­tion they present, infor­ma­tion that just recently has been uncen­sored, is sim­ply amazing.

One of the most intrigu­ing aspects of the book is not the spec­tac­u­lar suc­cesses, but the equally spec­tac­u­lar fail­ures. Some of these fail­ures are so aston­ish­ing one has to look at the cover to make sure the book is about the Mossad and not the key­stone cops. After­wards pound­ing ones head - "what were they think­ing".

Author Michael Bar-Zohar said that this is due to "The feel­ing is that we are the best in the world, and there­fore a sense of Israeli ama­teur­ish­ness some­times creeps into the sys­tem. This means they send peo­ple who are not as sea­soned as they should be and they trust that they will not be caught and iden­ti­fied."

That being said, the Mossad cer­tainly has an extra­or­di­nary achieve­ment record. That record though, cou­pled with clas­sic Israeli self-assurance and over­con­fi­dence, can eas­ily get smirched.
