From its riveting start in the night skies of Afghanistan to its stunning end in the recent Paris terrorist attacks, Assassins is an insider's story of the last 30 years of war between Islam and the West. A US commando, a French woman doctor, a Russian major, a British female journalist, a top CIA operator, an Afghani woman, and a Taliban warlord fight for their lives and loves in the dangerous streets and lethal deserts of the Middle East.
Drop by parachute into the deadly mountains of Afghanistan, feel the passion of love when at any instant you both can die, experience the bone-chilling fear of an American agent in an Al Qaeda group and of women who face death every day, fight door to door in the bloody cities of Iraq, know the terror of battle inside a Russian tank - it's all there, all real, in Assassins.
Did the Saudis finance 9/11? Did GW Bush let Osama bin Laden escape Afghanistan and then lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction so he could invade Iraq? Did Obama's decision to leave Iraq in 2011 lead to the rise of ISIS? It's all there, all real, in Assassins.
