A mild-mannered Swiss engineer devised and executed one of the most daring espionage coups of all time. An Egyptian-born Jew nearly became the Syrian Minister of Defense. Five ultra-modern missile boats were stolen from under the noses of French security men on Christmas Eve. Adolf Eichmann was kidnapped and spirited out of Argentina before the police knew he was even there- no less missing. These sound like the ingredients of spy novels. Each of them is completely true. Each is only one of the exciting adventures of the Mossad - Israel's Secret tures of the Mossad - Israel's Secret Intelligence Service. Cloaked in secrecy for most of its twenty-five-year existence, the Mossad has always worked in quiet obscurity. Only the brilliant team of Uri Dan and Eli Landau-Israel's most respected military and intelligence correspondents -with theinternational journalist Dennis Eisenberg, could penetrate that secrecy. T hey possess the contacts within every area of Israeli intelligence to get the inside information. Now, for the first time, they have brought these amazing stories to light with authority and accuracy. [...] But the Mossad story is about much more than the murky world of spy and counter-spy. Though armed with the latest in every type of electronic hardware, it depends firstand foremost on the men and women it recruits from the cream of Israeli so ciety. Here are the truly intimate stories of the triumphs and failures of these Mossad agents: men and women who work in lonely isolation, with brilliance and dedication, and nearly always in mortal danger. Their stories arecharged with drama, emotion and intrigue. " - from the dj.
