    Louis Freeh led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1993 to 2001, through some of the most tumultuous times in its long history. This is the story of a life in law enforcement and of one man's determined struggle to strengthen and reform the FBI while ensuring its freedom from political interference.

    Overall

    There were not to many surprises in this book for those of us who chose to stay informed during the 90's. What kind of national security were we expecting from a President whoose campaign slogan was "It's the economy Stupid". At least Clinton knew to call us stupid!!!

    Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist William Tuohy follows Richard O'Kane, America's undersea ace of aces, and a few fearless submariners, during the U.S. submarine war in the Pacific. This grueling battle saw 10 million tons of Japanese shipping sunk by U.S. submarines, but the cost to the U.S. Navy was one in five of its boats, the highest casualty rate of the U.S. armed services.

  • Plan of Attack

    Story

    Plan of Attack is the definitive account of how and why President George W. Bush, his war council, and allies launched a preemptive attack to topple Saddam Hussein and occupy Iraq. Bob Woodward's latest landmark account of Washington decision making provides an original, authoritative narrative of behind-the-scenes maneuvering, examining the causes and consequences of the most controversial war since Vietnam.

    Michael says: "Rorschach Test"
    "Woodward likes Bush"
    Overall

    I saw all the news shows with Woodward and he seemed so critical of Bush. His book does not come off like that. If he has a problem with anyone it is Cheney. After 9/11 everyone screamed about why we did not connect the dots. Now that we are trying to connect the dots the very same people are screaming that we are trying to connect the dots. If Franklin Roosevelt had to fight WW II with our current press he would have been impeached for the " War atrocities " of Dresden, Hamburg, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.

    Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers led the nation to war. Woodward's virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president.

    Chris says: "An excellent book"
    "I am no fan of Woodward, but"
    Overall

    If Woodward is to be believed Bush's leadership qualities are outstanding. He studies a problem then decides what to do, then never looks back.
