The Mossad is widely recognized today as the best intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in secrecy. This book unveils the defining and most dangerous operations that have shaped Israel and the world at large from the agency's more than sixty-year history, among them: the capture of Adolf Eichmann, the eradication of Black September, the destruction of the Syrian nuclear facility, and the elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists. Through intensive research and exclusive interviews with Israeli leaders and Mossad agents, authors Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal re-create these missions in detail, bringing to life the heroic operatives who risked everything in the face of unimaginable danger.--From publisher description

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The business of L'Oreal is beauty. It is the world's largest cosmetics firm. This startling book shows the other face of beauty. It is the story of how this giant company became a haven for ex-Nazis. It reveals the illegal alliance the L'Oreal forged with the Arab Boycott Bureau. And it brings to light the secret link between the L'Oreal high command and the President of France himself, Francois Mitterrand -- a link cast in the darkness of the Nazi past. Above all, it tells the story of what happened when L'Oreal partner Jean Frydman, a former French Resistance hero who had fought against anti-Semitism all his life, stumbled upon and exposed the shocking truth about L'Oreal and its web of concealed Nazi collaborators. Making it his crusade to unmask the cosmetics firm's long history of Nazi connections, Frydman filed suit against L'Oreal for forgery, perjury, and racial discrimination

No mission is impossible : the death-defying missions of the Israeli Special Forces by Michael Bar-Zohar( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 30 boldest missions of the Israeli Special Forces since the inception of Israel. No Mission is Impossible is an episodic treatment of the greatest missions of the Israeli Special Forces, characterized by its lead piece, an intriguing story of the rescue of 200 hijacked airline passengers at Entebbe, Uganda. This book is something of a sequel to Bar-Zohar's previous work, Mossad which investigated the world's most enigmatic intelligence service. A good number of the major characters in No Mission is Impossible have ended up in significant high offices in Israel, becoming Presidents and Prime Ministers. It depicts major battles, raids in enemy territory, and death-defying commando missions; it shares the personal stories of simple soldiers and top commanders, and reveals the fears and hopes of young Israeli recruits. It tells mostly of victories, but also some awful failures. Spotlighted too are the lives and accomplishments of Israel's heroes, Moshe Dayan, Ariel Sharon, the brothers Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, Avigdor Kahalani, as well as the tough and fearsome decisions of its Defense ministers - Ben-Gurion, Shimon Peres, and Yitzhak Rabin. These missions cohere into a gripping narrative, as their key participants develop and grow older and wiser. We follow Sharon, from his near death at the battle of Latrun in 1948 - to his crossing Suez in 1973; we are with Ehud Barak, dressed in a woman's clothes, when he commands a daring raid in Beirut in 1973, and cheer him as he is elected Prime Minister in 1999; we cringe as Motta Gur bleeds after the Elkayam operation in Gaza, 1955 - and then celebrate at his speech on the Temple Mount after the conquest of Jerusalem in 1967. Every chapter includes an interview with a major figure who took part in each mission. Among them: Presidents Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Navon; Prime Ministers Benyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak; Defense Ministers Benyamin Ben-Eliezer, Shaul Mofaz and Moshe Yaalon; Head of the Mossad Tamir Pardo, Generals Gantz, Kahalani, Galant, Lipkin-Shahak, Gershon Yitzhak, Amy Ayalon, Amir Eshel, Avihu Bin Nun, and others. The book also includes great photographs, many published for the first time
