Surprise Attack: The Victim’s Perspective offers implications based on the intelligence perspective, providing both historical background and scientific analysis that draws from the author’s vast experience. The book is of utmost value to all those engaged in intelligence work, and to those whose operational or political responsibility brings them in touch with intelligence assessments and the need to authenticate and then adopt them or discount them. Similarly, the book will interest any reader intrigued by decision-making processes that influence individuals and nations at war, and sometimes even shape national destiny.—Ehud Barak, Former Prime Minister of Israel
