No Mission is Impossible is an episodic treatment of the greatest missions of the Israeli Special Forces, characterized by its lead piece, an intriguing story of the rescue of 200 hijacked airline passengers at Entebbe, Uganda. This book is something of a sequel to Bar-Zohar's previous work, Mossad which investigated the world's most enigmatic intelligence service. A good number of the major characters in No Mission is Impossible have ended up in significant high offices in Israel, becoming Presidents and Prime Ministers. It depicts major battles, raids in enemy territory, and death-defying commando missions; it shares the personal stories of simple soldiers and top commanders, and reveals the fears and hopes of young Israeli recruits. It tells mostly of victories, but also some awful failures.
