Kurzbeschreibung

"This book tells what should have been known and isn't—that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognized physical strength."
— Israeli President Shimon Peres

For decades, Israel's renowned security arm, the Mossad, has been widely recognized as the best intelligence service in the world. In Mossad, authors Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal take us behind the closed curtain with riveting, eye-opening, boots-on-the-ground accounts of the most dangerous, most crucial missions in the agency's 60-year history.

Anyone who is fascinated by the world of international espionage, intelligence, and covert "Black-Ops" warfare will find Mossad electrifying reading.

Due to the author’s intimate knowledge and access to the key players, this book really stands out. It adds some detail about Operations which have been documented already, as well as portrays the current situation and operations against Irans nuclear program. It especially focuses on how Meir Dagan has transformed the Organization into a more potent force, which has been able to delay the Iranian Bomb.
Overall, this book is good for a first time “sniff” into the realms of Mossad, as well as for readers looking for new information on previous Mossad Operations.

The book is written as if it's a script for a thriller movie . it's more short stories than official documentations. Moreover there are historical mistakes 1) In the story of Eli Cohen ,his dead body was left hanged in public for 4 days not only for 6 hours.
2) In the a story of the MIG-21 , the traitor Iraqi pilot was seduced with a beautiful girl to execute what the message planned for. In this book it's said that he done this voluntarily because he refused bombing the Kurds which is not true.
3) Jack piton was not a double agent as the israelis claim, but a pure egyptian spy in the heart of Israel. ( It wouldn't be a shame if the israelis confess with this reality as they already done the same in Syria)
And I am sure that there are a lot of other mistakes that any specialist in history can pick them up !!!
I agree that all the stated stories in book were real but they have been extremely bubbled.

Ein spannendes Buch im Doku Stil - manche Geschichten sind schon etwas "wild" - kaum zu Glauben, dass es sich im ein reales Thema handelt - nüchtern geschrieben - zeigt Erfolge und Misserfolge des Mossad und beschreibt die handelnden Personen und Charaktere.

This is a piece of writing that sets the pace of story telling that not many books have achieved. Ir set my pulse racing as I anticipated what the next line, paragraph or chapters would reveal.Why a cool ride,coming with a marvelous plot, rich characters and a brilliant setting.It is tightly written, a style that brings to mind another the story of Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. I think this is a well researched novel.

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.

Positives:
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 MiG-21...it'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.

Negatives:
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 personalities...it'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!

Further recommendations: "Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team" by George Jonas, "Israel's Secret Wars: A History of Israel's Intelligence Services" by Ian Black and Benny Morris, "Gideon's Spies: The Secret History of the Mossad" by Gordon Thomas, "Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi" by Neal Bascomb, "Spycraft: The Secret History of the CIA's Spytechs, from Communism to Al-Qaeda" by Robert Wallace and H. Keith Melton, and "Standing Next to History: An Agent's Life Inside the Secret Service" by Joseph Petro.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast Paced and Fas­ci­nat­ing 18. November 2012
Von Man of La Book - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

I finished book, Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service, and found it an excellent read, riveting. I read through it quickly as I found it difficult to it down. The book is one of the best non fiction historical books that I have read. I would recommend it for anyone who would like to know more about the state of Israel and middle eastern politics from an honest perspective.

Von Stephen H. Karten - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is the first time I've ever read anything about Israel's heralded Espionage Organization, the Mossad, that sounds factual and genuine. Although it's a catalogue of intelligence events for the last 50 or so years, it reads like a novel. It's the type of book that I didn't want to put down. Though in some cases, I found it a bit too detailed to follow exactly. Not that it's a short book, but If anything, I'd have liked it to be about twice as long. Perhaps then, with still more detail and explanation it would have been easier to follow in some spots. But please don't get the wrong impression. It's quite clear and readable for the most part. Just some of the plots are very intense and intricate. And, as is often said, truth can be stranger than fiction. I found the book to be extremely enjoyable and looked forward to it each time I picked it up to read. In fact, If I could give it another half of a star in the Amazon rating, I would. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this venue and in the Mossad, which is rated by many as the finest Intelligence service in the world.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely worth reading, but not as good as some other spy books. 8. September 2015
Von Seattle Buyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I like spy books. This one is a little under whelming. Especially in the first few chapters, the writer is more of a cheerleader than an objective reporter.

I wish the book had more "spy craft", which I've learned in other spy books, such as ones by John Le Carre.

Nevertheless, no one can argue that, for given Israel's small size and constant danger it faces, the Mossad is probably the best, most effective secret security organization in the world.

It was fun to learn how the Mossad tracked down infamous Nazis. Those are satisfying stories.

The time range the book covers is impressive, from before Israel formed almost to the present day.

I was surprised the book reveal so much about Israel's nuclear program. I thought that was still an unconfirmed program. I credit the author for demystifying that.

If you're really into spy books, the gold standard is still Peter Wright's "Spy Catcher". I hope a book of similar technical detail is written about the Mossad someday.SPY CATCHER - The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer
