The Mossad: Israel's Secret Intelligence Service by Dennis Eisenberg, Uri Dan, and Eli Landau

Although, this book is over 30 years old, and a lot of the information is about spy missions from the 1950's - the early 1970's, this was a very informative text for those interested in Israel's most famous (some may say infamous) clandestine organization, the Mossad. Details of the Eichmann kidnapping, the Six-Day War, the theft of a MIG fighter, and detailed accounts of some of the most famous heroes of Israel, including Eli Cohen, Isser Harel, and many others, made for fascinating reading, and I would recommend this book to those interested in reading about some of the difficult decisions the Israelis have had to make in the defense of their national security.
