No Mission Is Impossible

(2015)
A non fiction book by

 
The thirty 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 large number of the major characters in "No Mission Is Impossible" have ended up in significant high offices in Israel, becoming presidents and prime ministers."No Mission Is Impossible" depicts major battles, raids in enemy territory, and death-defying commando missions. It shares the personal stories of simple soldiers and top commanders, and it reveals the fears and hopes of young Israeli recruits. It tells mostly of victories but also of awful failures. Spotlighted too are the lives and accomplishments of Moshe Dayan, Ariel Sharon, the brothers Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, Avigdor Kahalani, as well as the tough and fearsome decisions of Israel s 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 of the 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 we cringe as Motta Gur bleeds after the Elkayam operation in Gaza, 1955, followed by celebration as he gives his speech atop 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 are 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, Kahal
