The Mossad is universally recognized today as the greatest intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic one, shrouded in a thick veil of secrecy. Many of its fascinating feats are still unknown; most of its heroes remain unnamed. Here, for the first time the veil is lifted by two Israeli authors. From the famous cases - - the kidnapping of Eichmann from Argentina, the systematic tracking down of those responsible for the Munich Massacre - to lesser-known episodes, shrouded in darkness, this extraordinary book describes the dramatic, largely secret history of the Mossad, and the Israeli intelligence community. It examines the covert operations, the targeted assassinations, the paramilitary operations within and outside Israel. It also reveals the identities of the best Mossad agents and leaders, whose personal stories are interwoven with the great Mossad operations.
