    Charlie Wilson's War is the untold story behind the last battle of the Cold War and how it fueled the rise of militant Islam. George Crile tells how Charlie Wilson, a maverick congressman from east Texas, conspired with a rogue CIA operative to launch the biggest, meanest, and most successful covert operation in the agency's history.

    Chuck says: "Best Non-Fiction Book - Extremely Compelling!!!"

    Overall

    Charlie Wilson's War (unabridged)is a "must listen" for anyone interested in Middle Eastern current events. At first, I thought that a non-fiction documentary, 20-hour account, of the Afgan struggle against the Soviet Union, had the potential to be a real bore. Man, was I wrong! This is one of those audio books that makes you run extra earings for the wife so you can listen to more and more and more! I would highly recommend this great book by George Crile to any student of history, Middle-Eastern Islamic affairs, and geo-political spy story aficionados.
