New Review of ‘Spies Against Armageddon’: “Each Chapter Brings a New Surprise”

At, buyers of books get to post reviews — if they’d like to praise something they’ve read, or warn others not to waste their money.

Steve Hartov, a successful author with great insights into military escapades and covert action, was kind enough to post this review of Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars:

Once again, Yossi Melman and Dan Raviv have written a consummate and fascinating work on Israeli Intelligence. This book might be regarded as the companion piece to their New York Times best seller, “Every Spy a Prince,” and its carefully crafted history and new revelations continue to enthrall and thrill.

Unlike many other investigative journalists who delve into this subject, Melman and Raviv are not “speculators,” and have been working this ground for decades, balancing their carefully-earned contacts deep within Israeli Intelligence with great care not to reveal too much.

However, each chapter brings a new surprise, such as the details of Israel’s assault on Syria’s nuclear bomb factory, and the subsequent assassination of Assad’s nuclear architect, General Suleiman. No one else writes about Israel’s intelligence community with such elegance and authority. For anyone interested in the subject, this book’s not to be missed. Even the end notes are gripping.
