From the makers of the documentary of the same name, the history of Al Qaeda’s secret war against Saudi Arabia

Path of Blood tells the gripping and horrifying true story of the underground army which Osama Bin Laden created in order to attack his number one target: his home country, Saudi Arabia. His aim was to conquer the land of the Two Holy Mosques, the land from where Islam had first originated, and, from there, to reestablish an Islamic Empire that could take on the West and win.

Thomas Small and Jonathan Hacker use new insider evidence to expose the real story behind the Al Qaeda. Far from the image of single-minded holy warriors they present to the world, the bands of sol­diers are riven by infighting and lack of discipline. Drawing on unprecedented access to Saudi govern­ment archives, interviews with top intelligence of­ficials both in the Middle East and in the West, as well as with captured Al Qaeda militants, and access to exclusive captured video footage from Al Qaeda cells, Path of Blood tells the full story of the terrorist campaign and the desperate and deter­mined attempt by Saudi Arabia’s internal security services to put a stop to it.
