Editorial Reviews for this title:
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. 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, procuring hundreds of millions of dollars to support the mujahideen.
Moving from the back rooms of the Capitol, to arms-dealers conventions, to the Khyber Pass, Charlie Wilson’s War is a detailed and brilliantly reported account of the inside workings of the CIA.
