Chapter 1 is titled “Stopping Iran,” then come chapters with exclusive and carefully considered history—showing how the behavior and lessons learned in wars and adventures in the past affect the decisions Israel must make today. Later chapters focus on the secret bombing of a nuclear reactor in Syria, the murder by a Mossad team in a Dubai hotel (Was it a mistake?), and blasting the Steven Spielberg movie “Munich” for making it look like Mossad hit men suffered frustration and regrets. SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is well researched, balanced, and a remarkably enjoyable read.

“Raviv and Melman have redefined the gold standard for nonfiction about intelligence. This remarkable history of Israeli intelligence from the War of Independence to Stuxnet calls it straight. By describing the roots of both the triumphs and the screw-ups thoroughly and fairly the authors help us see not only how Israel’s survival has been effectively protected but the huge debt the rest of us owe.”

                          —R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence

“Buyer beware:  Once you crack the cover of Spies Against Armageddon, you won’t be able to put it down. It is much more than simply the most authoritative book ever written about Israeli intelligence. It is storytelling and drama of the highest order.”

      —Daniel Silva,
         #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fallen Angel

      “Wonderful.  Great sourcing, and it reads like a thriller.”

             —Bob Schieffer, longtime host of Face the Nation, CBS News



Spies Against Armageddon often reads like a thriller, but it’s non-fiction. These two world-class journalists take us to places we’ve never been before. They back up their points with tons of excellent research and reporting. They clearly know their stuff. I learned so much reading this book. I know you will, as well.”
   —Wolf Blitzer, CNN Anchor
   seen with Dan Raviv on “Situation Room” July 10, 2012


“The revelatory research amassed in SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is nothing short of stunning.  Raviv and Melman understand the inner workings of Israel’s Mossad better than most Mossad agents. Highly recommended!”

                —Douglas Brinkley, historian, author of Cronkite

“Raviv and Melman have written a wonderful history of Mossad. It reads like a thriller, but conveys a thorough history of the Israeli intelligence agency. The story is told through eyes sympathetic to the Israeli narrative, but the authors do not hesitate to write critically about Mossad’s mistakes, bungles and misjudgments. Their sources are wide and deep. It is astonishing how many old spies have agreed to divulge their stories to Raviv and Melman. The book is extremely timely, not only for its discussion of Mossad’s ongoing attempt to derail the Iranian nuclear project, but also for the light the authors shed on Mossad’s operations against Lebanon’s Hezbollah. The book is an invaluable contribution to the literature on intelligence.”
          —Kai Bird
              Pulitzer Prize winner, author of  The Good Spy
