Rumsfeld's War: The Untold Story of America's Anti-Terrorist Commander

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center

When terrorists crashed a plane into the Pentagon, Donald Rumsfeld was there - helping carry the wounded to safety. And he's been there - leading the war on terror, directing its operations around the world in both open and covert missions, and bluntly focusing on one primary goal: killing terrorists. His great fear was a second Pearl Harbor. When it happened on September 11, 2001, he led the charge to make sure it never happens again. This book takes you inside Rumsfeld's Pentagon, detailing the far-sighted, courageous decisions he has made to enable our military to fight this most unconventional of wars. Rumsfeld's War reveals why and how much of the bold new military strategy and vision that we are implementing now in the war on terror we owe to one brilliant, brave, and tenacious man.

"Rumsfeld's War presents the best inside look at the global war on terrorism published to date..."
