Combining the behind-enemy-lines suspense of Black Hawk Down with the first-person intensity of Jarhead, this is the heart-pounding story of a young American who became one of the most elite counterterrorism commandos in the world.
Beverly Hills native Aaron Cohen was eighteen years old when he left behind his privileged American life with the single-minded ambition of joining Israel's top anti-terrorist commando unit. After fifteen months of grueling training, Cohen was offered the only post a non-Israeli can hold: a top-secret, highly controversial unit that dispatches operatives disguised as Arabs into the Palestinian-controlled West Bank to abduct Hamas leaders and bring them to Israel for trial. Cohen learned flawless Arabic, lost all semblance of his all-American appearance, and participated in countless life-or-death missions. A propulsive, gripping read, Cohen's story is a rare fly-on-the-wall view into the shadowy world of "Black Ops."
