A sequel (to the authors' graphic adaptation of The 9/11 Report) better than the work that preceded it; in this the presentation is more blunt in pointing out the lies and mistakes of the people who decided to invade Iraq and have mismanaged both that war and the war in Afghanistan, naming names and giving details of what they've done wrong and who pointed it out before they did or as they were doing it.
Again, they do a better job than I would have thought possible of taking an appropriately ser

This graphic novel explains the post- 9/11 us world. The novel shows all the events, major characters who's words had an outcome on the united states, also the consequences of the “war on terror.” Reading and seeing the images really helped me understand more of all this detailed information making it more of an enjoyable read. i thought at times it was hard to take in all the information and follow the reading due to the factor of being so detail and complex. would recommend this book to anyone ...more

After 9/11 America’s War on Terror (2001- )
By Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón
This graphic novelization of the events after September 11, 2001 goes over the history that we have seen from headlines and sound-bites, as well as a few things that happened without media fanfare. This book begins with a non-biased sound, but by the time the reader is halfway through there is a feeling on the reader’s part that the authors hold some definite opinions. The best part about this book, however, is the few tim

After 9/11 America's war on terror by Sib Jacobson and Ernie Colon is a great book. I am a person who like books that deal with war issues. And I am always up for reading a book that has to do with the World Trade Center terrorist attack. This book was a graphic book which made me want to read it more. Not only was I able to picture the difficulties American troops were facing in my head now I was able to visualize in more efficient way.

This book is very descriptive. It has numerous dates of d

This book proved to me the idea of our generation knowing WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION about wars. The statistics were informative in the book and they obviously did a lot of research. I am just one to believe we shouldn't know everything that goes on, war is horribly sad and outlining day by day deaths is just too much for me. I would rather people support our country and soldiers no matter if they support the war or not. Those are people's family members over there. Providing the Middle East with ...more

This graphic novel explains the post- 9/11 world. The novel shows all the critical events, major characters, the contexts and consequences of the “war on terror.” Reading and seeing the graphic depiction of this complex information makes for easier understanding than simple prose. The major characters are so well drawn and make recognition in print and visual media a snap. This book definitely eases the understanding of the chronology and interconnectedness of the events while keeping the reader ...more

Not as good as their 911 Commission Report, this one reads more as a clinical timeline with depressing reports of casualties and incompetent, criminal US leaders. Tragic waste of lives and money.
Mike Edwards
I was very disappointed in this book. The Graphical Adaptation of the 9/11 Report was an interesting and informative retelling of the events chronicles in the official 9/11 report. This book is simply a biased criticism of the Bush Administration. Many of their criticisms are valid, but most of the information here is better presented in books like Ron Suskind's One Percent Doctrine. Moreover, because of the biased nature of the information presented here, the book loses the flavor of "readable ...more

The book itself was interesting. It gave what seemed to be a bluntly obvious point of view for the "War on Terror". My main criticism is that in the second half of the book, most of the story is just spewing out data that x many people died from this y bombing and z people were injured. I know this is a war and that the casualties are a large part of it, but the book would've been at least half the size if they didn't mention anything about the people who died from IEDs.

After 9/11 : America's War on terror (2001-) is an informative and interesting graphic novel about the important and costly war on terror by Sid Jacobson. The book explains the times leading up to the invasion of Iraqand also tells about how the war in Afghanistan multiple times seemed almost won. You would like this book if you like historical books that aren't biased and tell the trut

2 1/2 stars.

I got more from the 9/11 report and the Anne Frank graphic novel. I would pull parts of this for lessons.

Maybe it was the topic...I skimmed about 1/3 of the book. It was tough reading about the deaths every day.
Robin
This book does a good job of describing relevant events that occurred after 9/11 but it's fairly repetitive and most of the illustrations do little to further the narrative.
Don
Graphic adaptation book that begins where their previous graphic book The 9/11 Report leaves off.

Again, a very easy read and very well done.
Cecelia
Not the best, the illustrations are attrocious and its extremly laborious. good chronicle of hisotry though.
Dawn
As easy to understand layout of the events following 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
