A stunning new book by authors Joseph Gelman and Meir Doron documents in great detail, facts about the life of legendary Israeli Hollywood producer, Arnon Milchan. Facts that even his closest friends will find surprising: namely, that before Hollywood, Mr. Milchan was one of the most daring and productive secret agents that Israeli intelligence had ever fielded. Working through a mysterious and little-know intelligence unit, the LAKAM, and guided by legendary Israeli spy-masters Benjamin Blumberg and Rafi Eitan, Confidential, The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon Arnon Milchan describes a world of billion-dollar weapons transactions, secret bank accounts, and a web of front companies around the world established by Milchan for the purpose of obtaining the super-sensitive technology and materials for Israel’s nuclear weapons program, from the mid 1960’s to the 1990’s.
“Arnon is a special man. It was I who recruited him…When I was at the Ministry of Defense, Arnon was involved in numerous defense-related procurement activities and intelligence operations… His activities gave us a huge advantage, strategically, diplomatically and technologically… In my present position as president, I am restrained from recommending any single individual for our highest defense-related honor, but undoubtedly, Arnon Milchan is worthy of such an acknowledgement, and that’s as close to a recommendation that I, as President, can give.”
