Reviews

A valuable examination of U.S. national security crises past and present. . . A timely, pertinent study emphasizing the fact that when it comes to military or terrorist attacks, 'there are always be warnings.' --Kirkus

Ample warnings preceded Pearl Harbor and every subsequent attack on U.S. soil and U.S. forces, writes Hancock, a veteran national security journalist. . . He is not shy about suggesting improvements, but admits that since American leaders may never get their act together, more surprises are likely in store. --Publishers Weekly

In clear and detailed writing, the author focuses on the widespread American command and control networks that examine strategic/national and tactical/local intelligence. . . An important topic for everyone to comprehend, as the threat of a new attack is constant, both from home-grown extremists as well as foreign groups. --Library Journal Starred Review
