With his unmatched investigative skill, Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers, after the initial shock of the September eleven attacks, led the nation to war. Extensive quotations from the secret deliberations of the National Security Council—and firsthand revelations of the private thoughts, concerns and fears of the president and his war cabinet—make Bush at War an unprecedented chronicle of a modern presidency in time of grave crisis. Based on interviews with more than a hundred sources and four hours of exclusive interviews with the president, Bush at War reveals Bush’s sweeping, almost grandiose, vision for remaking the world. “I’m not a textbook player, I’m a gut player,” the president said. Woodward’s virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president and his advisers, three of whom might themselves have made it to the presidency. In Bush at War, Bob Woodward once again delivers a reporting tour de force.

Editorial Reviews

“Remarkable...Bush at War is akin to an unofficial transcript of 100 days of debate over war in Afghanistan.” New York Times Book Review
“Human and convincing in its telling detail.” Newsweek
“Woodward has produced the best book yet written about the September 11 terrorist attacks on America and how Bush fought back.” Chicago Sun-Times
“A work of spareness and authority...We are fortunate to have this richly detailed view of our nation’s central policy command.”
“A great read...Bob Woodward has unearthed important new information on the behind-the-scenes struggles that have led to success—and failure—in President Bush’s War on Terror.” New York Observer
