Gideon’s Spies: The Secret History of The Mossad

Originally published in 1999, Gideon's Spies has now been updated and republished to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. With new data on events leading to the 9/11 Attacks and its aftermath, "Gideon's Spies" by Gordon Thomas stands out as the definitive history of one of the most important intelligence organizations in the world today.  From the establishment of the fledgling state and its perilous course through its nation-building period in the 1950s/60s through the war against the PLO for survival, Thomas tells the story of the formation and organization that has insured the continuation of the Israeli state through it most perilous periods and its greatest crises. From the heroic 2,500 mile-long Entebbe Raid into Uganda to rescue hostages from murderous grip of the tyrant, Idi Amin, and on to the present day, Gordon Thomas chronicles the story of an organization that can truly be described as the Mogen David or The Shield of David, for without the constant vigilance and efforts of Mossad, there might well be no state of Israel today.

First published in 1974, it became a world bestseller and a major feature film that received five Academy Award Nominations and was voted “The best English Language Film of the Year”.

Secret Wars: One Hundred Years of British Intelligence inside MI5 and MI6 (US Edition)

Inside British Intelligence: 100 Years of MI5 and MI6 (UK Edition)

Gordon Thomas returns here on the 100th anniversary of Britain’s Security and Secret Intelligence Services to provide the definitive history of the famed MI5 and MI6.

These agencies rank as two of the oldest and most powerful in the world, and Thomas’s wide-sweeping history chronicles a century of both triumphs and failures. He recounts the roles that British intelligence played in the Allied victory in World War II; the post-war treachery of Great Britain’s own agents: the defection of Soviet agents and the intricate process of “handling” them; the often frigid relationship that both agencies have had with the CIA, European spy services, and the Mossad; the cooperation between the British and Americans in the search for Osama bin Laden; and the way in which MI5 and MI6 have fought biological espionage and space terrorism.

The go-to expert on international espionage and the intelligence communities has conducted prodigious research and interviews with significant players, resulting in this rich and delicious page turner. With insider information more startling than anything out of James Bond, Secret Wars is a must-read for anyone interested in the intrigue-filled world of international espionage.
