14 The Cornelius Ryan Award 2012

Peter Bergen brings his decades of reporting and insights to bear in this definitive account of the search for Osama bin-Laden. He captures the tension of the years-long post-9/11 search, weaving history and personality into a brisk narrative. Bergen’s deep familiarity with the subject and years of on-the-ground work demystify the dizzingly complex Al Qaeda network, and give rich texture to the most riveting manhunt of our time.
