Details

The true story that inspired the Netflix film The Red Sea Diving Resort.

In the early 1980s on a remote part of the Sudanese coast, a new luxury holiday resort opened for business. Catering for divers, it attracted guests from around the world. Little did the holidaymakers know that the staff were undercover spies, working for the Mossad – the Israeli secret service.

Providing a front for covert night-time activities, the holiday village allowed the agents to carry out an operation unlike any seen before. What began with one cryptic message pleading for help, turned into the secret evacuation of thousands of Ethiopian Jews who had been languishing in refugee camps, and the spiriting of them to Israel.

Written in collaboration with operatives involved in the mission and including an afterword from the commander who went on to become the head of the Mossad, Raffi Berg presents the fully endorsed never-before-heard, gripping tale of a top-secret and often hazardous operation.
