The Finish: The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden is a compelling account of the assassination of one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, Osama Bin Laden. Summary Of The Book The Finish: The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden is Mark Bowden’s second most important book after his successful bestselling title Black Hawk Down. It presents a gripping and definitive account of the hunt for and elimination of Osama Bin Laden. Besides having a natural talent for storytelling, Bowden has exceptional access to key sources involved in this case. Thus, he not only gives an absorbing account of the events, but takes the reader right into those rooms where the key decisions were taken. The Finish: The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden focuses on Bin Laden, who managed to disappear after planning the attacks of September 11, 2001. It is about the next ten years in which America realized that they needed an innovatively unique approach to handle this case. They had to deal with Al Qaeda, a terrorist group consisting of individuals that were scattered and impossible to track. Bowden describes the quick evolution of certain war fighting techniques over the period of a decade adapted by American intelligence agencies and special forces. He further depicts how they came together to kill the world’s most infamous terrorist. Bowden’s The Finish: The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden traces the Bin Laden operation step by step. It elucidates the development of a new tactical plan to fight against enemies like Al Qaeda. The author talks about those thousands of missions that were executed in Iraq and Afghanistan before the American authorities found the right weapon to end the matter. He describes how Bin Laden maintained a firm stream of despairing correspondence during the last year before his death when he was in hiding. In spring 2011, the American intelligence forces pointed to a compound in Abbottabad that they suspected as Bin Laden’s hiding place. Did they find him there? What was this unique weapon? How did they finally manage to do justice to the victims of 9/11? What were the main strategies employed for the successful accomplishment of this mission? Bowden provides answers to all these questions in his page turning narrative. Another main focus of the book is President Obama. Bowden emphasizes on Obama’s character and highlights how his evolving ideas and massive responsibilities have made him one of the most resolute warriors inhabiting the White House.

From Mark Bowden, internationally bestselling and acclaimed author of Black Hawk Down and the preeminent chronicler of the actions of the US military and special forces writing today, comes an intensely gripping account of the hunt for and elimination of Osama bin Laden. With unprecedented access to key sources and his great gift for storytelling, Bowden takes us inside the rooms where decisions were made and where the action unfolded. The story focuses on bin Laden, who maintained a steady stream of despairing correspondence in hiding in the year before his death, and on President Obama, perceived by many as an anti‐war candidate because of his opposition to the Iraq War, whose evolving views and enormous responsibilities have turned him into one of the most determined warriors to ever inhabit the White House. It details the rapid evolution of war‐fighting methods over the last decade, as American special forces and intelligence agencies have adapted to fight non‐state enemies like Al‐Qaeda, and how they came together seamlessly in May 2011 to kill the world's most notorious terrorist. Tracing the operation in blow‐by‐blow detail, Bowden's book is an unrivaled account of the most high‐profile special forces operation ever to have been undertaken, and a page‐turning narrative of how the man behind 9/11 was finally brought to justice.
