Our Man in Damascus: Elie Cohen
By Eli Ben-Hanan
Elie Cohn was hanged from a hook in Martyr´s Square, Damascus. The execution was carried live, from beginning to end, by the Syrian television network, while, in Israel, a pale woman watched every scene. She was Nadia Cohn, the wife of Israel´s greatest spy - a man who had penetrated the highest echelons of the Syrian government so successfully that its´ President, El-Hafez, considered him an intimate friend.
Now the hard hitting story of Elie Cohn´s amazing feats can be told - one of the most fantastic infiltrations of an enemy regime in the annals of espionage.
