'Isser Harel instigated and led 'Operation Eichmann' when he was chief of the Israeli secret services. Never before has the director of such an important operation described it so fully and frankly. He made the decision to capture the administrator of Hitler's 'Final Solution' in 1957, on hearing the first convincing rumour that Eichmann was in Argentina. he handed his prisoner over to the law in Israel on May 22, 1960.
Each stage is described detail by detail, without dramatics; and none are needed because the story itself is so gripping. The reader forgets that he knows how it will end, so close is he brought to the experiences of Harel and his team.'
