An in-depth read of our struggles against ISIS. The author's are both decorated military heroes, who have given years of their lives in this war.
The book covers the rise of ISIS, and the forming of the "strike cell" to fight it. The author's provide an excellent look into the complexities of Middle East politics.

Their synopses, timelines and mi ...more

This book is a compelling and fascinating account of America's- and the Middle East's- war on Isis. It hooks you from the first chapter and leads you through all the frustrations and "wins" the authors went through to bring down an extremely dangerous adversary.
It fascinates how two such disparate writers can create a book that reads so smoothly and richly.
If you want to understand a bit more about what's happening in Syria right now, this is a must read. For everyone else, it is a
