Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service by Michael Bar-Zohar starts slowly. First mentions of the exploits of the world's most famous, or infamous, intelligence service seemed, at first, not so very great. But soon after getting into the book's increasingly complex accounts of the history of the Mossad as well as its many bizarre missions the content more than lived up to the book's subtitle. This is a book about rescues, heroics, compromise and assassination. It also, as background, provides fascinating insight into Israel's culture, politics and continuing, sometimes desperate seeming efforts to survive. If you enjoy reading about the inner workings of secret, superlative organizations, you will enjoy this work on the Mossad. The individual accounts are supplemented with copious notes.
