    SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON, by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman If a h

    SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON, by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman If a hero is
    the culmination of a man and a moment, this comprehensive, brutally
    honest chronicle of the fearless men and women whose up-to-now
    super-secret missions created, defended and inspired the state of
    Israel, and the world at large, is the most telling depiction of modern
    human heroism you may ever read. The exploits depicted in this
    beautifully researched and readable account provide the gritty human
    details—the successes, failures, relationships, distrusts, and even the
    catastrophes—behind decades of headlines that never, ever told the whole
    story. If you knew then, deep down, that you were only getting the
    cleaned up, approved, “official” version of those events—yet mostly
    likely didn’t quibble at the time with the justification for such
    censorship—you will be stunned and delighted with the depth of
    reporting, and the access to the essential personalities that Raviv and
    Melman have achieved. Moreover, they’ve managed the difficult and
    rarely successful literary feat of celebrating their admiration for
    their subjects even as they peel away the stubborn layers of their
    decisions and actions, their personalities and rivalries, to show for
    the first time publicly what went right, and far more surprisingly and
    interestingly, what went wrong, and why. This is the history of
    secret diplomacy and the ultra-secret, often lethal missions behind it,
    told the way it’s supposed to be told, not just long after the game is
    over, but while it still rages on. Remarkably, some of the names of the
    principal players—the leaders, thinkers, secret agents and double agents
    who, more than anyone, have been responsible for Israel’s ongoing
    existence—continue to turn up in today’s headlines, providing a
    consistent and memorable sense of the personality-based human history
    that continues to shape that nation’s future. If you like to delve
    behind the headlines and the history books into the actual, too-often
    hidden stories of human courage, dedication and selflessness that shape,
    and inspire the world, this remarkable book is a must read.
