Product description

Review

'Secret missions, brazen deceptions and thrilling, clandestine operations - Red Sea Spies has it all. But it has something more important, too - a genuine human mission that made a difference.'--David Hoffman "author of the Billion Dollar Spy "

'Drawing from extensive interviews with the leaders of the operation, Berg provides firsthand details, which results in a riveting narrative, reminiscent of a spy novel ... [his] captivating writing and in-depth research make this a must-have for fans of espionage tales.'--Library Journal, Starred Review

'[An] outstanding debut ... Berg's moving, well-researched book stands as the definitive account of this heroic rescue mission. It deserves a wide readership.'--Publishers Weekly

'An amazing story of the dogged behind-the-scenes workings of the Mossad, Israel's foreign intelligence agency, from the late 1970s to the '90s... From the first secret airlift until 1991, writes the author, who includes helpful maps and a list of the significant characters, 28,695 Ethiopian Jews were transported to Israel, 'about 80 percent of their entire community.' Berg's account of the operation--remarkable due to its duration, execution, and success--reads like a spy novel.'--Kirkus

'Berg's account of the operation--remarkable due to its duration, execution, and success--reads like a spy novel'--Kirkus

'BBC journalist Berg's outstanding debut reveals the true story of a secret Israeli operation to bring Ethiopian Jews to Israel... Berg's moving, well-researched book stands as the definitive account of this heroic rescue mission.'--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

'Raffi Berg has, for the first time, managed to accomplish the herculean task of rendering a complex, manifold, full of human diversity story into a credible, readable, dynamic, passionate and well-documented book.'--'Dani' "Operation Commander "

'The true and most accurate story of the Mossad's Ethiopian Jewish rescue operation in Sudan ultimately over a period of around a decade has found a gifted and worthy author who deserves high praise for his monumental effort in unearthing so many key aspects that have never been publicly revealed till now.'--Efraim Halevy "Head of the Mossad 1998-2002, from his Afterword "
