9780985437831: Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel's Secret Wars

"Buyer beware," #1 best selling thriller novelist Daniel Silva warns: "Once you crack the cover of SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON, you won't be able to put it down. It is much more than simply the most authoritative book ever written about Israeli intelligence. It is storytelling and drama of the highest order." This is a history of Israel's espionage and security network from 1948 until the present day. Chock full of colorful characters and written by the best selling authors of EVERY SPY A PRINCE, this book will take you inside the Middle East crises of today, analyzing Iran's nuclear program and challenges for the United States. A former Director of the CIA, R. James Woolsey, writes: "Raviv and Melman have redefined the gold standard for nonfiction about intelligence. This remarkable history of Israeli intelligence from the War of Independence to Stuxnet calls it straight. By describing the roots of both the triumphs and the screw-ups thoroughly and fairly, the authors help us see not only how Israel's survival has been effectively protected but the huge debt the rest of us owe." The best selling historian Douglas Brinkley (biographer of Walter Cronkite) writes: "The revelatory research amassed in SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is nothing short of stunning. Raviv and Melman understand the inner workings of Israel's Mossad better than most Mossad agents. Highly recommended!" Bob Schieffer of CBS News says this book is "wonderful, with great sourcing -- reads like a thriller." Wolf Blitzer, the CNN anchor with vast Middle East experience writes: "Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman have written a powerful book about Israeli espionage. SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON often reads like a thriller but it's non-fiction. These two world-class journalists take us to places we've never been before. They back up their points with tons of excellent research and reporting. They clearly know their stuff. I learned so much reading this book. I know you will, as well." Chapter 1 is titled "Stopping Iran," then come chapters with exclusive and carefully considered history -- showing how the behavior and lessons learned in wars and adventures in the past affect the decisions Israel must make today. Later chapters focus on the secret bombing of a nuclear reactor in Syria, the murder by a Mossad team in a Dubai hotel (Was it a mistake?), and blasting the Steven Spielberg movie "Munich" for making it look like Mossad hit men suffered frustration and regrets. SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is well researched, balanced, and a remarkably enjoyable read.

Review:

Best-selling spy novelist Daniel Silva writes: "Buyer beware: Once you crack the cover of Spies Against Armageddon, you won't be able to put it down. It is much more than simply the most authoritative book ever written about Israeli intelligence. It is storytelling and drama of the highest order." --Advance Praise

R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence, writes: Raviv and Melman have redefined the gold standard for nonfiction about intelligence. This remarkable history of Israeli intelligence from the War of Independence to Stuxnet calls it straight. By describing the roots of both the triumphs and the screw-ups thoroughly and fairly the authors help us see not only how Israel's survival has been effectively protected but the huge debt the rest of us owe. --Advance Praise
