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.
