9780802120342: The Finish: The Killing of Osama Bin Laden
Review:

A "New York Times" Bestseller
"In-depth interviews with Obama and other insiders reveal a White House on edge, facing top-secret options, white-knuckle decisions, and unforeseen obstacles. . . . Bowden weaves together accounts from Obama and top decision-makers for the full story behind the daring operation."--"Vanity Fair"
"A book -- one with sweep and sophistication -- about a pivotal, secretive operation . . . smart and measured, long on transparency and short on speculation. . . . Bowden enjoyed exceptional access, but wasn't captured by it. . . . Bowden's lens is wide, encompassing Obama's evolution as a politician and the peculiar influence of bin Laden . . . Where the book shines is in Bowden's reconstruction and refined analysis of the intelligence operations that turned up bin Laden's location. . . . The book also succeeds in its artful portrait of Obama as commander in chief. . . . compelling drama, and Bowden has captured it with skill and style."--"Seattle Times"
"How all the president's men and women finally nabbed the world's most wanted terrorist is truly a stunning story. And while parts of it have been told, Barack Obama himself has confided in only one writer about all the details. And he is Mark Bowden."--CNN
"The first book, and, to date, the definitive one, that looks at the Osama bin Laden raid from President Obama's perspective. "The Finish" describes a new kind of war fighting--the fusion of intelligence from vast and scattered sources--to track and apprehend, or kill, the enemy. . . . It's a gripping tale."--The Daily Beast
"The most accessible and satisfying book yet written on the climactic event in the United States' long war against al Qaeda."--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"The death of the man responsible for the 9/11 attacks is a fantastic story. It has goodies and baddies, a long, slow build to the climax, exotic locations and lots of hardware. . . . Bowden [shows] how success in the raid last Ma

From the Publisher:

From Mark Bowden, the preeminent chronicler of our military and special forces, comes "The Finish," a gripping account of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. With access to key sources, Bowden takes us inside the rooms where decisions were made and on the ground where the action unfolded.
After masterminding the attacks of September 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden managed to vanish. Over the next ten years, as Bowden shows, America found that its war with al Qaeda--a scattered group of individuals who were almost impossible to track--demanded an innovative approach. Step by step, Bowden describes the development of a new tactical strategy to fight this war--the fusion of intel from various agencies and on-the-ground special ops. After thousands of special forces missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the right weapon to go after bin Laden had finally evolved. By Spring 2011, intelligence pointed to a compound in Abbottabad; it was estimated that there was a 50/50 chance that Osama was there. Bowden shows how three strategies were mooted: a drone strike, a precision bombing, or an assault by Navy SEALs. In the end, the President had to make the final decision. It was time for the finish.
