Overview

"I have to believe that either Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff is one heck of a researcher or he is getting his information from sources inside the government or the U.S. Military..." - Steve Samblis, ICPlaces.com

THE KILLING OF OSAMA BIN LADEN is a concise and detail-rich telling of the historic manhunt for the world's number one most-wanted terrorist.

The courier was the key. A mid-level al-Qaeda operative who played a small part in the planning of the 9/11 attacks and was with Bin Laden when he escaped the battle of Tora Bora. Find out who the courier was, and how with one phone call, he eventually led the CIA to Bin Laden's fortress-like mansion in the affluent suburbs of Abbottabad, Pakistan. Years after the trail had gone cold, Osama Bin Laden, was once again within our sights. Finally the largest manhunt in U.S. counterterrorism history was headed to its singular and bloody conclusion if only the President and his team could figure out how to get him before he vanished once again.

The gut punch Osama Bin Laden landed on 9/11 still stings. What he took from country on that terrible day can never be replaced, nor can the lives of the thousands of innocent men, women and children murdered in the name of some crusade. And even though it will still be a long time until we Americans fully heal from the pain of the worst terrorist attacks on our soil, we can rest assured that the man who became the epitome of evil in the modern world will never do this again.

This commemorative ebook edition of the events that led to Bin Laden's death includes details about the courier whose phone call doomed the al-Qaeda leader and the detective work that led the CIA to the front door of his fortress-like mansion compound in an affluent neighborhood of suburban Pakistan.

This book goes out to the brave men and women of the U.S. Military. Your valor and courage make me proud to be an American. Please get home safely.

I am no expert of CIA intelligence operations but I have to believe that either Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff is one heck of a researcher or he is getting his information from sources inside the government or the U.S. Military. I would bet there will be phones ringing at the Pentagon or inside the Beltway once word of this book gets out... if you are looking for a highly informative and thrilling rendition of how the man Hunt for Osama bin Laden unfolded, definitely look no further than this one.

    Bypass this one

    Not worth the 99 cents I paid for it. I will not buy any other Mark Nemcoff book.
    I also didn't appreciate that the 'sample' had none of the book, just reviews.

    Fast-paced, informative and pulse-pounding

    The story about how they got Bin Laden is like a big Hollywood blockbuster movie with action, suspense, detective work. The author captured it well with a quick-moving narrative that lays out the story in an informative and entertaining way. Bravo!
