When it comes to chronicling our military and special forces, there is no one better then Mark Bowden.  Everyone knows his incredible bestsellers “Black Hawk Down” and “Killing Pablo”, and now with his newest “The Finish: The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden”, Mark gives us the most in depth look into the 10 years of planning that went into finding the world’s most notorious terrorist.  Mark gives us a first hand account inside the White House featuring interviews with President Barack Obama and vital components of his National Security Team, and the inside look into one of the toughest calls that any President has ever had to make on a 50/50 shot of success.  Here are some of the incredible reviews for “The Finish”:

“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

“The Finish leverages access to key White House, military, intelligence, and foreign-policy officials—including President Obama himself—to get behind the intricate story of how SEAL Team Six was sent to Abbottabad, Pakistan, to kill Osama bin Laden. . . . Bowden reviews the evolutionary progress made in intelligence processing and military capabilities that led to the raid on Abbottabad. . . . close to a textbook example of complex national security decision-making.”—The Atlantic

“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.”—Doug Stanton, The Daily Beast

“[A] dramatic narrative . . . the actual champion of the bin Laden hunt is a collective of mostly nameless hands within the intelligence bureaucracy. . . The Finish is at its best when Mr. Bowden goes deep into mission planning, gameboarding the choice of means of attack—air strike? sniper drone? ground-force raid?”—Wall Street Journal

“The most accessible and satisfying book yet written on the climactic event in the United States’ long war against al Qaeda.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“A page-turner . . . an informative, on-the-ground account of the mission. Adept at maintaining suspense even when the outcome is widely known, Bowden also makes judicious assessments of how much credit Obama deserves — and the impact of the assassination on al Qaeda.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Shaping up to be one of the fall’s big books.”–Judith Rosen, Publishers Weekly
