    Wow This book is a monumental achievement and will leave your head spinning The sheer chutzpah and courage of many of Israel's intelligence operations over the last 80 years was incredible to read about but Bergman does much than tell incredible stories about crazy assassinations He is able to weave these stories into a narrative about the larger uestions of Israel's existence and survival and he doesn't shy away for tackling the morally

their lips The same can be said for the Guardians of Israel who like any good spies prefer misdirection strategic exaggeration and the occasional modest downplaying to keep what really happened under wraps Case in point the sometimes exuberant journalist Gordon Thomas whose Gideon s Spies has been shown to have uite a bit of exaggeration over the years This time however the magicians have decided to tell of the truth in a book that is set to be the seminal 2018 release beating out Steve Coll s Directorate S for the most hotly anticipated non fiction history book of this year Rise up and kill

journalist in Israel who knows all the main players and has illuminated the pitch black dark spaces At 900 pages it is the complete history of covert ops intelligence gathering and assassination by

game Chronicling the greatest hits by letter bomb car bomb air force bomb bullets and in one case the worst dental hygiene product in the world Exploring the biggest defeats and setbacks which include the ones that they would have preferred to keep under wraps this book is the warts and all portrait of the most idolized and demonized group of soldiers and spies in the world that in the age where facts are now irrelevant but feelings are in fashion is truly a welcome relief This is proof that proper journalism is not dead The cast of characters is phenomenal and so are the little stories woven into the narrative We have Mossad s founding fathers and how they got their first office a group of Nazi loving German Protestants were in Tel Aviv and were removed from the vicinity permanently their

the best they can in spite of what their job throws at them At the heart of this story however is an analysis about the paramilitary side of the espionage game aka the side of the business which the most beloved spy novels are drawn from It shows you the planning the hard work and sheer effort it takes to kill a man that you only see a third of in a thriller novel The men who developed the paramilitary capability as you ll learn in the book are proud of their creation and rightfully so But they understood that it can only bring short term tactical victories but not the long term solution that they realize their country would need And it s this tactical victory and strategic defeat dichotomy that you ll learn cuts to the heart of the utility of paramilitary operations in covert affairs To conclude This is the book about the real Gabriel Allons and peels back the curtain to show you the time effort and suffering they ve had to do to create that badass Israeli legend

Carries out attacks on the highest value targets and the Shin Bet an internal security service that implemented the largest targeted assassination campaign ever in order to stop what had once appeared to be unstoppable suicide terrorismIncluding never before reported behind the curtain accounts of key operations and based on hundreds of on the record interviews and thousands of files to which Bergman has gotten exclusive access over his decades of reporting Rise and Kill First brings us deep into the heart of Israel’s most secret activities Bergman traces from statehood to the present the gripping events and thorny ethical uestions underlying Israel’s targeted killing campaign which has shaped the Israeli nation the Middle East and the entire worl. My favorite book of the year so farI ve been looking for a comprehensive history of Israel s targeted assassinations since the clumsy video recorded assassination of Mahmoud al Mabhouh in Dubai made headlines worldwide in 2010 and finally I have found it a truly comprehensive journalistic and enlightening look at the history of Israel s targeted killing program from the days preceding the 1948 foundation of the state to nearly the present day Rise and Kill First was everything I wanted to read and Not only do I feel far knowledgeable about the history of Israel and the Middle East as a region in the last eighty years than I did before reading this book but the dozens of assassinations and assassination attempts make for spellbinding reading Despite the worldwide perception of Israeli intelligence as incredibly adept its history of success with targeted killing has been mixed than one might perceive from the outside Many times potentially disastrous assassination orders were subverted or sabotaged by concerned or skeptical commanders or military personnel Even when assassinations did proceed Bergman shows how killing a single individual yields unpredictable results often Killing a perceived threat in Hezbollah or Hamas sometimes slowed the freuency at which attacks on Israelis occurred but sometimes it created power vacuums filled by even staunchly anti Israel charismatic leadersBergman clearly extensively consulted with sources within the Israeli intelligence and military establishment and the depth and breadth of his knowledge even about matters that are not at least on a global scale common knowledge is very impressive and he hints at times that he may be prevented from disclosing even information due to military censor Although he is Israeli himself he doesn t gloss over some of the ugly episodes in the history of the targeted killing program such as Lillehammer a near attempt on Yasser Arafat that ended up being mercifully aborted and would have been a total disgrace internationally and even vengeful extrajudicial killing carried out by relatively high ranking military personnel He also touches upon the historic successes of the red page program Thanks to the endlessly interesting subject matter and narrative driven writing this is interesting than a spy novel and I found it can t put it down fascinating in many parts I can t recommend it highly enough especially if you are interested in military or espionage history
