Rise and Kill First
- The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations
- By: Ronen Bergman
- Narrated by: Rob Shapiro
- Length: 25 hrs and 58 mins
In this pause-resisting, eye-opening audiobook, journalist and military analyst Ronen Bergman - praised by David Remnick as 'arguably [Israel's] best investigative reporter' - offers a riveting inside account of the targeted killing programs: their successes, their failures, and the moral and political price exacted on the men and women who approved and carried out the missions.
Brilliant book and brilliantly read

I thought I had a reasonable knowledge of Israel and it’s basic history however Mr Bergman has shown me that I had no idea.
This book provides a surprisingly unbiased history and certainly doesn’t shy away from the negative results delivered.
Despite the 25 hr play time, this book flew past.
