Summary

Summary

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, it didn't take the U.S. government long to determine that Al Qaeda was behind the terror. Realizing that the Taliban government in Afghanistan had long allowed Al Qaeda to operate within its borders, President George W. Bush gave an unheeded final warning, and then attacked. This book examines the war against Taliban-led Afghanistan, focusing on major events and helping students gain insight into a war that will shape and affect their futures.
