A very detailed reading into a very complicated situation that is currently facing Pakistan. Very hard to put the book down. However the book was bit too long for me. Would recomend it to anyone who wants to know what happens behind the curtains.

It is by far the best book written in the perspective of terrorism and it modern form.It gives a very rich and informative historic background all the way from the establishment of Saudi Arabia to 11 September...

This is a wonderful book and fully worthy of five stars. However, and this is an irritating however, the publisher has been extremely sloppy with the digitisation. Thus, words such as battle and little become "batde" and "litde" . McWilliams is often Me Williams. The ISI becomes on occasion the ISF. There are other examples. This may seem trivial but it really does interfere withe the e-reading experience and I wish I had bought the physical book. Of course, all this could have been corrected with a cursory proof reading followed by a find and change routine. The publisher has done a dis-service to the author and his readers.

An essential reference work for every Sandhurst cadet, officer and all those involved in global security and addressing the rise of al-Qaeda and other extreme terrorist groups.

A great well researched account of how the CIA dropped the ball and created a mess in Afghan post Soviet conflict. Plenty of fingers in many pies. Well worth a read!

Written in an incredibly small for which makes it a hard book to read at bedtime. Content is interesting and worrying if true - still only half way through though

An excellent read if a little dated now.

But it gives the reader an insight into the 'Twighlight' world of the CIA etc.
