    • This is an excellent short history of Islamism or muslim war against the West. The prescription for winning that war is (perhaps surprisingly) drawn from the policy used to defeat the last totalitarian challenge to democracy, that of the Soviet Union. Certainly not surprisingly, it makes clear that religion IS involved in the Islamist attack and that defeating it begins with recognizing it and speaking about it in clear terms.Outstanding.

    • This is a quick, interesting, and enlightening read. It addresses the important issue of radical Islam. The book is especially timely and here I will quote: “The year 2015 was the deadliest for jihadist plots and attacks in America since September 11, 2001. We are losing this war both in the Middle East and on the streets of the United States. There will be more attacks like those in Boston and San Bernardino unless we change the way we think about the threat to the homeland. There is no such [...]

    • ARGUMENTDr. Sebastian Gorka May Be a Far-Right Nativist, But for Sure He’s a Terrible ScholarA closer look at the doctoral dissertation of President Trump’s expert on “radical Islamist terrorism.”IN: foreignpolicy/2017/03/17/d

    • Given the times, it is sad to say, but *everyone* should read this book.I regularly watch the news, I listen to the politicians and pundits prattle non-sensibly, and I regularly read up on events in the Middle East and Afghanistan. I am no expert, not by a long shot, but it is say that I do have a casual interest that exceeds the average. And yet I found the organization and presentation of Gorka's book absolutely outstanding and enlightening. The book is mainly a historical perspective - and a [...]

    • Great insights into the mindset or ideology of the bad guys from the guy who does the same for our Warriors from his professorship at the Marine Corps University. Uses the template of our defeat of two previous totalitarian adversaries (Nazism in WW II & Soviet Union in the Cold War) for the defeat of this third totalitarian adversary, radical Islam). Reader warningt politically correct.

    • For anyone seeking an overview of what motivates Islamic Jihadist terrorism, this is an excellent and concise read. The author also gives some great insights into the history of Jihadism and what the West needs to do to stop it from spreading further. I highly recommend reading this book.

    • “A book every American should read.” I agree.A few years ago, our son-in-law, a special operations soldier, told me in explicit terms about the grave danger of the Islamic State to Western Civilization. He gave details to support his belief, and they were frightening.In the months that followed, I have read articles and listened to reports that supported our son-in-law’s report. Dr. Gorka’s book, however, is the best book for backround information that I have read so far. Gorka writes ab [...]

    • THIS IS GARBAGE. I have an Master's degree in International Security Studies and focused on counterinsurgency policy in the MENA region. I have a decent idea what I am talking about when it comes to counterinsurgency and Takfiri-inspired violence. Sebastian Gorka has done a poor job rehashing a history of Islam and his strategies are so incredibly naive it makes me question his knowledge of counter-terrorism and transnational terrorist groups. He spends so much time drawing vague connections bet [...]

    • Gorka is an interesting guy. I love listening to him when he is interviewed. He clearly knows his stuff well. In the book he provides his personal history which motivated him to study stopping jihadism, and he provides very interesting historical perspective on how the current mess evolved as well as providing sage advice for how to stop it. Two criticisms: one, when discussing the fact that Attaturk wanted to create a nation (Turkey) that was Westernized and *not* a caliphate, Gorka almost made [...]

    • WE ARE AT WAR, JUST LIKE WWII. This is not a long book but it IS a book that EVERYONE should read, PERIOD! Sebastain Gorka's family lived through the horrors of WWII and Germany occupation and he has since become a student of warfare tactics but more importantly the Caliphate and its desire for world domination - MEANING THE TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA AND OUR WAY OF LIFE. Americans civilians joined forces during WWII to help fight the Evil Axis of Germany, Italy and Japan while our forces were [...]

    • Well, just thanks to the 2/3 of the book I learned that, first of all, the author is a proud Hungarian, that Hungary was terribly humiliated twice in the last 100 years, that Communism killed 100 million people, that the author is a proud American, that Wahhabism was created in the 18th century as a weapon against the British colonialism, that the author is a proud American (yes, again), that the USA (just the USA) defeated Nazi Germany and Communist Russia, that terrorism has nothing to do with [...]

    • This book is an eye opener! Everyone must read this book to understand why terror happens today to the extent and cruelty we are facing. Another highly recommended book on the Cyber aspects of today's threat (not covered by Gorka) is Cyber Terror: How It Happens And What We Can Do. These two books will give you the necesary background and undersatnding of modern terror and cyber terror threats.

    • This is really more of a history (of both totalitarian communism and of Islamic Jihad) along with a very superficial examination of Jihadist theology and some of the key figures in the IS and other groups. There isn't much strategy for actually "defeating" Jihad in this book though - the entire book reads like a prologue to a 14 page section where the author basically just says to substitute "Jihad" for "Communism" in the Kennan letter.

    • Since 9/11, I have read various books and magazine articles to better understand the threat our nation faces from radical Islam. In this book, Dr. Gorka does an excellent job stating the facts all freedom loving Americans should know and understand!As Ronald Reagan has accurately stated: "Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction!"

    • Well presented and informative.This book was very informative and concise considering the complex subject matter. I would recommend this to anyone who cares about our great country and our continued liberty. The more we know the better prepared we are to defend ourselves and our freedom.

    • A primer for the average (but perhaps less read or informed reader) about the threat posed by Islamic global jihadists. Pretty basic and simple read. Not at all deep and comprehensive as other works out there, so if you have not read too many books about this topic starting with this book might be an ideal place to start.

    • Great resource Outstanding book on the current threat with ideas on how to spot it. Talks about strategies necessary to defeat and gives a great background on the Islamic State. I highly recommend the book.

    • I was expecting something very right wing politically written. I was surprised to find this book was 80% the history of Jihad. It was very clear and concise compared to most things I've attempted to read about it. The last 20% was about what we can do to fight the war on terror as individuals.

    • Good book although he seemed to spend a lot of time describing the history of the Jihadists and only a short time actually outlining how to defeat them. But then again, as he described in the book, knowing your enemy is crucial to defeating them

    • Short but essential read for truly understanding the evolution of the Islamic State and what it will take to vanquish enemy. This is a global jihad that goes beyond the mission of even the 9/11 attacks, so my use of "enemy" is unfortunately appropriate when applied to the new caliphate.

    • Reads like a high school report. He never does get around to his plan -- unless it's the three pages before the afterword. The rest is padding, opinion, and political spin. Blech.

    • 4 Stars and a nice read over the weekend. Another one of those books that all Americans, Jews, and Judeo-Christians need to read. # Read up My Friends !

    • This book tells very little if anything about Islamic terrorism. It says more about the Cold War! IT WAS NOT WORTH MY TIME!

    • Gorka's book should be must reading for every high school and college age student in America. The challenge of dealing with Islam is growing with intensity almost every day. Sadly, the majority of our national leaders have been ignorant about the ideological and theological basis for Islam. Only by understanding Islam and its purpose, can Americans make intelligent and informed decisions on how to defend American culture from this increasing threat.

    • A fabulous book to explain Islam, jihad, the distortion through the years and the complete misunderstanding by the Left.This is a quick read that should be required reading for every high school and college student.Most voters should have full disclosure and knowledge of what this country is really facing.

    • A short book covering ISIS, caliphate and Islamic terrorism. Mr Gorka outlines failures of past presidents and a future path to deal with the rising issue.

    • Dr. Sebastian Gorka is a popular fellow these days. He’s appeared on various Fox News programs, and various news programs on other channels. I’d never heard of him until I started watching Sean Hannity’s television program. It seems like he’s a guest in a segment every day. He’s also appeared on another favorite of mine, Coast to Coast AM. Why is Gorka such a sought-after guest? It has to do with these times we, as a global community, find ourselves. If there wasn’t a widespread thre [...]
