Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Shortly after midnight on May 2, 2011 two helicopters swooped down on a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. As the helicopters landed a small but highly trained contingent of Navy SEALs poured out. The Special Forces troops fanned out and searched the compound. Within minutes they found their target and killed him. The man they were searching for and who they ultimately dispatched was Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda and architect of the infamous 9/11 attack. This daring raid was the culmination of nearly ten years of searching for the most wanted man in the world. In The Takedown of Osama bin Laden Natalie Lunis chronicles this dramatic event in a way that will both inform and fascinate readers. While the death of anyone is a diminishment, the demise of Osama bin Laden was greeted with celebrations in New York City and many other places in the United States. Here, in this concise but well-crafted book, younger readers are provided a compact recounting of one of the more compelling Special Forces missions in recent years. This story is also amplified by the numerous photos that detail both the mission and the men who carried it out. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
