Pressestimmen

Chosen by the Washington Post As One of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2012

"Virtually crackles with insider details...Bergen’s Pakistani sources gave him new insight into bin Laden’s home life...The details of the SEAL raid itself...[make] for compelling reading. Bergen puts the raid into a broader intelligence framework and deftly re-creates the heart-thumping tension of that night and the calculations that went into pulling off the daring mission...Bergen’s three other books have become required reading for national security buffs and counterterrorism reporters. But Manhunt is different. It goes to a higher level...Bergen has accomplished a journalistic feat: He manages to make the story of bin Laden’s end sound new. He has put together a real-life thriller that will be a must-read for years to come."
--Dina Temple-Raston, Washington Post

"A gripping read...Bergen has an eye for memorable close-ups. His narrative has authority...Packed with satisfying observations...Highly readable."
--The Economist
 
“Some of the more illuminating sections of Manhunt concern the efforts of intelligence analysts to piece together a 'working theory' about Bin Laden’s whereabouts...Also fascinating are the descriptions of internal debates within the Obama administration.”
--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

 “The best reporting we have on the subject.”
--Michelle Dean, The Nation

"Bergen...draw[s] on his excellent government sources, his deep knowledge of al Qaeda, and his reporter’s instincts (which got him into the Abbottabad compound just after the raid). His book is full of fascinating details and illustrates the immense pressure on national security bureaucracies to provide options to policymakers and then reduce the risks associated with their implementation."
--Lawrence D. Freedman, Foreign Affairs

"Gripping...Dramatic...A masterful account of bin Laden’s life and activities, how al Qaeda operated in the aftermath of Sept. 11, and the American government’s success in tracking down the world’s most notorious terrorist leader."
--Joshua Sinai, Washington Times

"Terrific...A fast-paced narrative that takes you into the search for the most-wanted man in human history."
--Bruce Riedel, The Daily Beast

“The story is riveting because it is as if Bergen were embedded everywhere--the situation room of the White House, three miles high in the rugged mountains of Tora Bora and alongside the Navy SEALS who would put a quick and dramatic end to bin Laden’s life.”
--San Antonio Express


“I devoured it. It’s an important book, which I urge you to read as soon as you can…Bergen’s moment-by-moment account of the raid makes for gripping, even breathless, reading.”
--Clay Jenkinson, Bismarck Tribune

“This superbly researched account of the United States' decade-long effort to track and kill bin Laden provides the intimate details on virtually every critical decision along the way…The book actually transcends its subject matter, demonstrating the best practices of critical thinking by the people who do it best…Present[s] the evidence on both sides of even the most controversial issues, without agenda or bias…Compelling and authoritative.”
--Huffington Post

"Dispassionate and authoritative...What the author brings to this epic story is context and perspective...Bergen has the credibility to tell this story."
--Frank Davies, Miami Herald

“Uncanny access and research…a fascinating account...The story is riveting because it is as if Bergen were embedded everywhere…Gives some interesting insight into the complex personality of bin Laden.”
--Mark Stoeltje, San Antonio Express-News

“Bergen offers rather intriguing profiles of the four wives...Bergen’s telling of the actual operation--flashing from Special Ops movements to administration anticipation, including the White House Correspondents Dinner, where Seth Meyers famously made a crack about Bin Laden having a show on C-SPAN--is riveting.”
--Swati Pandey, Los Angeles Review of Books

"In Manhunt, Peter Bergen has produced a page-turner rich with new information and insight into the search for Bin Laden and his killing. Only Bergen, America's foremost counterterrorism writer, could have produced a book of such energy and authority--a triumph."
--STEVE COLL, author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001

"Ten years of grit, intelligent hard work, and daring led to Operation Neptune Spear, and Bergen captures it all in a story that is both a riveting page turner and a definitive history. Revealing details of bin Laden's last years in self-imposed prison, the debates of the CIA analysts who tracked him, and the training of the SEALs who killed him, Manhunt is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the real story of how the world's most wanted terrorist was finally brought to justice."
--ERIC GREITENS, author of The Heart and The Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy SEAL    
 
"With masterly reporting, Peter Bergen takes us where we've never been: behind the high walls of Osama bin Laden's last hideout and behind the scenes of the heroic and painstaking hunt for the Al Qaeda mastermind. Manhunt is a thrilling read."
--ANDERSON COOPER, CNN anchor

Von P. Lau
Format:Kindle Edition
I just wanted to read more about the hunt for bin Laden and this book promised to have the full story.
I was not disappointed.
A very good read with lots of details, yet not too much information to become boring.

5.0 von 5 Sternen TRACKING THE WORLD'S MOST WANTED TERRORIST 2. Mai 2012
Von RBSProds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Five INVESTIGATIVE Stars! In "Manhunt: The Ten Year Search For Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad", author and national security expert Peter Bergen promises the full story on the tracking down and killing of the Al-Qaeda terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden, and the book is full of detail on the manhunt, the raid, and the aftermath. He actually met Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in March 1997 conducting an interview for CNN with two fellow journalists. While bin Laden came off as a mild-mannered person during the interview, his rhetoric spewed "a raw hatred of the United States" and he effectively declared war on the USA. Four years later on 9/11, bin Laden sent Al-Qaeda personnel into the USA to launch his attack on the American people at famous landmarks, killing over 3000 people who also represented citizens of over 90 countries. Author Bergen was the first outside observer to have access to bin Laden's now-destroyed Abbottabad compound in Pakistan and even standing in the bedroom where bin Laden met his demise. Based on high ranking sources, some of whom are named, he was able to trace the CIA's tracking of bin Laden's movements, his familial relationships, and to recreate how the CIA sifted through the haystack of possibilities: finding the key courier that led the US to the compound, and the circumstances of the raid. Indeed, the pursuits of fugitives such as Adolph Eichmann and Mir Aimal Kansi provided the CIA some methodology in the bin Laden chase. Along the way, the author addresses many interesting persons and circumstances: the bin Laden compound's purchase and functional architecture, the most dangerous job in Al-Qaeda, the truth about bin Laden's kidney disease, what really happened at Tora Bora, Al-Qaeda's Operational Security techniques, bin Laden's tangled polygamous familial relationships, internal disagreements within Al-Qaeda, the intelligence windfall of bodyguard Abu Jandal, the 4 key parameters of the 'Rebecca' analyst's "Inroads" paper, KSM and Qahtani, the Jordanian doctor, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, the "Holy Toledo" moment, the "Red Team", multiple raid options, "The Decision", the complexity of the raid, bin Laden's last words, the true reaction vs the official reaction in Pakistan, and the aftermath. This is an impressive feat of investigative journalism, building up to and going beyond a crucial historical moment bringing to justice the greatest mass murderer in US history. My Highest Recommendation! Five COMPELLING Stars. (384 total pages~3708 KB, with 3 maps, and over 40 photographs and documents, with bibliography and notes. This review is based on a Kindle download, reviewed in text and text-to-speech modes.)

Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad by Peter L. Bergen

"Manhunt" is the riveting and insightful ten-year pursuit of America's most wanted man. Best-selling author and acclaimed security analyst Peter L. Bergen provides the most thorough and discerning account of what actually went down and the people behind the manhunt of Bin Laden. This well-researched book reads like a good spy novel and offers keen insight that only a person as well-connected and methodical as Bergen can provide. A page-turner of a book that unfortunately was rushed to meet the one year anniversary and in doing so left out some important intelligence that is becoming available now to the media. Be that as it may, this book was a treat to read and the author closes out the book with a great synopsis of the state of Al-Qaeda and the Middle East in general. This mesmerizing 384-page book is composed of the following fourteen chapters: 1. 9/11 and After, 2.Tora Bora, 3. Al-Qaeda in the Wilderness, 4. The Resurgence of Al-Qaeda, 5. A Working Theory of the Case, 6. Closing In on the Courier, 7. Obama at War, 8. Anatomy of a Lead, 9. The Last Years of Osama bin Laden, 10. The Secret Warriors, 11. Courses of Action, 12. The Decision, 13. Don't Turn On the Light, and 14. Aftermath.

Positives:
1. Peter Bergen is a fantastic author who has an excellent track record.
2. A fascinating topic in the talented hands of a master. Bergen is well-connected and it shows. This is as well-researched a book as you will find.
3. Excellent writer, his prose is engaging and some parts reads like a James Bond film. A page turner indeed.
4. Great insight on how intelligence is collected and the characters involved. Also how decisions get made and the philosophy behind those decisions. Interesting.
5. A great look back at similar covert actions and lessons learned. War strategy.
6. Fascinating insights throughout the book. The interrogation techniques, plots that were thankfully thwarted, the failures and successes.
7. A look at some of the technology...The Predator drones and their use.
8. The Agency's four "pillars" of the hunt.
9. A very interesting look at President Obama's foreign policy.
10. Interesting look at the dynamics between bin Laden and his cohorts.
11. A look into the mind of bin Laden. His views, plans, observations...
12. The creation of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and the reasoning behind it. The leadership of Major General Stanley McChrystal and why he succeeded.
13. The Navy Seals...enough said.
14. The key role of Admiral William McRaven. His strategy.
15. The four possible Courses of Action (COAs) for Abbottabad. and what the key players favored and why. Great stuff.
16. All the details of Operation Neptune Spear. Like a great spy novel.
17. An inside look at the logistics involved with such an operation and the politics involved.
18. What went right and what went wrong with the mission and the aftermath. Lessons learned.
19. An excellent synopsis of the current state of affairs in the Middle East.
20. Photo inserts always welcomed.
21. An impressive bibliography and notes sections.
22. One of the best acknowledgements section I've ever seen. Really gives you an idea at all the people involved with this book including Anderson Cooper and key government contacts.

Negatives:
1. The book was clearly rushed to meet a most likely publisher-induced deadline. As a result some information pertaining to the "treasure trove" retrieved by the SEALS from the bin Laden compound is now being released and such details were obviously missed by this book.
2. It's hard to be too critical, the book is insightful but I was hoping to know more about bin Laden's finances. Where did all his money go? Bergen does provide insight about bin Laden's thriftiness but not really much on where all his millions went.
3. A book warranted a list of cast of characters.
4. No kindle links to notes.
5. Not as impressive or as detailed technically as his previous books but excellent nonetheless.

In summary, some of the shortcomings aside I really enjoyed this book. Peter Bergen is a treat to read for many reasons: he is an authority on the topic, has a great reputation, is well-connected and writes with an engaging prose. This book is a fascinating story of the ten-year hunt for bin Laden and it does the topic justice. I highly recommend it!

Further suggestions: "Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror" by Richard A. Clarke, "SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper" by Howard E. Wasdin & Stephen Templin, "Spec Ops: Case Studies in Special Operations Warfare: Theory and Practice" by William McRaven, "Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War" by Mark Bowden, "Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10" by Marcus Lattrell, and "WAR" by Sebastian Junger.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Less than I hoped 6. Mai 2012
Von No Name Texan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book fulfilled some of my desire to know more. The main strength is in further demystifying UBL and conveying how weak and further self absorbed he became with his isolation. The main weaknesses of this book is there is a great deal of repetition (where was the editor?; also this appeared rushed to press?) throughout the book, and much of the "inside" story has already recently been released to the press. Thus, anyone who has been following news and cable channel shows closely on this topic will find less new material than they might have hoped. For anyone who has been less informed, you will likely find this book interesting and insightful, and I so I offer a general recommendation.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Summary, but Underwelming 3. Mai 2012
Von Gremlin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As a person who has a deep interest in this subject and great admiration for Peter Bergen, I anxiously awaited the release of "Manhunt," hoping it could shed some light on aspects of the life of Osama bin Laden, the intelligence that led to his capture and the life on the run between 2001 and 2006 in several Pakistanian cities. Bergen is precise, cognient, organized precise. He provides previously undiclosed information about the intelligence cache collected and bin Laden's thoughts, from the waning years of his life. It added to the record. This, however, will not be the ultimately chapter or the great book on bin Laden. Bergen's "The Longest War" offers much more insight into American policy considerations. Lawrence Wright's "The Looming Tower" paints a better picture of bin Laden and al Qaeda. Ali Soufan's "Black Banners" provides a more insightful look at U.S. Interrogations. Bergen's book seeks to tell the story of bin Laden from 2001 to 2011, and what it does is adds new detail to the time between 2001 and 2005. There is little insight into the Pakistani manhunt, how bin Laden's family members in Iran were able to avoid detection on their return to him in Abbottabad, the foreign powers that helped the U.S. Make the case with the courier and bin Laden, the role bin Laden's daughter's death in a drone strike played in his thought process and tracking (his orphaned grandchildren were taken to him during the time of U.S. Survelliance). Bergen has excellent acess to people and data and provides great insight on the Obama team's anayltical process and the redteaming of the case for bin Laden being in that location. But the book seems rushed. Perhaps it was the need to publish by the anniversary date. But the lack of information about the period of time that is crucial to the resurregence of al Qaeda is disaapointing. Bergen clearly had official access and perhaps it distracted him from some of those details and the elements of the hunt for bin Laden that are not yet public (the roles of the Special Collection Service, the Intelligence Support Activity and the National Security Agency). Where Bergen does not have official access, it seems his narrative is light. I know he can do it better and I hope he comes back at some other issues in the rewrite for the paperback, which I would gladly give another read. Among the loose ends of 9/11, such as the death of Jamal Khalif, Osama bin Laden, remains one
