In this page-turning, eye-opening book, journalist and military analyst Ronen Bergman-praised by David Remnick as “arguably [Israel’s] best investigative reporter”-offers a riveting inside account of the targeted killing programs: their successes, their failures and the moral and political price exacted on the men and women who approved and carried out the missions. Built from interviews with Israeli Prime Ministers as well as high-level figures in Mossad and the country’s military and intelligence services – Rise and Kill First includes never-before-reported, behind-the-curtain accounts of key operations and based on hundreds of on-the-record interviews and thousands of previously unseen files. Bergman traces, from statehood to the present, the gripping events and thorny ethical questions underlying Israel’s targeted killing campaign, which has shaped the Israeli nation, the Middle East and the entire world.
