A New York Times Bestseller -- From the preeminent chronicler of our military and special forces comes a gripping account of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Over the ten years following the attacks of September 11, 2001, America's war with al Qaeda demanded an innovative approach. Step by step, Mark Bowden describes the development of a new tactical strategy -- the right weapon to go after bin Laden had finally evolved. It was time for the finish.
While much has been written about the killing of Osama Bin Laden by an elite group of Navy Seals--and much more will be--no account could be more meticulous and balanced than this fascinating report from the author of Black Hawk Down. Riveting but evenhanded, dramatic but thoughtful, Bowden’s account is the deeply sourced story of what was going on in the heads of our government leaders, as well as the Al Qaeda leader known in the intelligence community as “The Pacer.” --Sara Nelson
