The months after the death of Osama bin Laden witnessed a flurry of new books chronicling global efforts against terrorism. These works ranged from first-person histories from retired Special Forces operators to partisan polemics to monographs on particular operations or regions. While many made for interesting reading, few attempted to reconstruct an integrated history of the previous decade of war. With their new book, Peritz and Rosenbach attempt to fill the gap and provide a comprehensive overview of the evolving U.S. counterterrorism effort.
