At the age of eighteen, Aaron Cohen left Beverly Hills to prove himself in the crucible of the armed forces. He was determined to be a part of Israel's most elite security cadre, akin to the American Green Berets and Navy SEALs. After fifteen months of grueling training designed to break down each individual man and to rebuild him as a warrior, Cohen was offered the only post a non-Israeli can hold in the special forces. In 1996 he joined a top-secret, highly controversial unit that dispatches operatives disguised as Arabs into the Palestinian-controlled West Bank to abduct terrorist leaders and bring them to Israel for interrogation and trial.

Between 1996 and 1998, Aaron Cohen would learn Hebrew and Arabic; become an expert in urban counterterror warfare, the martial art of Krav Maga, and undercover operations; and participate in dozens of life-or-death missions. He would infiltrate a Hamas wedding to seize a wanted terrorist and pose as an American journalist to set a trap for one of the financiers behind the Dizengoff Massacre, taking him down in a brutal, hand-to-hand struggle. A propulsive, gripping read, Cohen's story is a rare, fly-on-the-wall view into the shadowy world of "black ops" that redefines invincible strength, true danger, and inviolable security.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than more known Lone Survivor and American Sniper I'm an avid reader of books based on experiences in serving with special units, and have read many books from best-sellers such as Lone Survivor and American Sniper to more obscure ones. However, Brotherhood of Warriors is definitely my favorite for several reasons: it has the most likeable and sympathetic main character/narrator; is totally free from political propaganda that plagues books such as Lone Survivor and American Sniper; doesn't use derogatory language to describe opposite side (again something that books about US special units are full of) while it doesn't feel politically correct either; some missions are really hilarious (when they dress like women) ; it's rather moving at times. Of course, there are genre contrivances where you know spmething didn't really happen but have to be there because genre requires them (and since similar books all have them that alerts you to contrivance). But this is so minor (cat scene is the only I can think of). The book's a breeze to read and Aaron is really likable, sympathetic and easy to relate. if you're fan of books about American commandos, give Israeli's a try and you won't be disappointed.

Editorial Reviews

“It’s more than a story of the making of an elite unconventional warfare operative—it’s a real, in-your-face, and mesmerizing look at the birth of a patriot. You will be inspired, believe me.”
