BookFest In Your Living Room Present: Michael Bar-Zohar, The Mossad Amazons: The Amazing Women in the Israeli Secret Service
Tickets: $11 for one virtual ticket
From one of Israel’s foremost experts on espionage comes the exciting stories recounting the turbulent lives, loves and perilous missions of the greatest Mossad lohamot, the female warriors of the Israeli Secret Service. The stunning feats of these strong, bold women prove that they are equal to men, and often even better. Beside the nation’s enemies, they had to fight a painful solitude, an awkward attitude of their male colleagues, and often give up their dream of marriage and children. And still, they brilliantly carried out their missions. For many years, the activities of the Mossad lohamot were highly classified by the authorities. Today, the veil of secrecy has been lifted, and the Amazons’ incredible exploits have been cleared for publication. At last.
