Award-winning journalist Bob Woodward has spent over thirty years in Washington's corridors of power. In All the President's Men it was he, together with Carl Bernstein, who exposed the Watergate scandal and he has been giving us a privileged front-row seat to White-House intrigue and decision-making ever since. With PLAN OF ATTACK he brings his investigative skills to bear on the administration of George W. Bush, and the build-up to war in Iraq. What emerges is a fascinating and intimate portrait of the leading powers in Bush's war council and their allies overseas as they prepare their pre-emptive attack and change the course of history.

In retaliation, Russia's leader launches the most devastating military sneak attack since Pearl Harbor, decimating America's strategic air forces. Now an embattled U.S. president must choose between two horrific scenarios: a cease-fire on the enemy's terms ... or respond with every weapon in the nation's arsenal, possibly triggering global thermonuclear war. Disgraced and demoted to a desk job, aerial warfare expert Brigadier General Patrick McLanahan saw the nightmare coming -- and only he can stop the relentless Russian war machine. But the fight for the future must take place in the blazing skies, a battlefield off-limits to the discredited former commander of Air Battle Force ... unless McLanahan takes matters into his own hands.

When we are born unto this world we don't know what our future is; it's like cloud you don't know what is behind it, it's an unknown future. I soon found that out at the early age of 17 years old where my hopes and dreams were cut short through a car accident which left me a quadriplegic. Being a strong female, as I am, I wouldn't let my disability or people rule my life which was a hard task? The bar for me was set rather high. I had to exceed expectations and refuse to live down to them. What God had given me was more than his fair share of challenges as I have found out through the years to follow. My bad luck was so frequent I still keep a diary today so anybody who was feeling sorry for themselves were left to answer to me.

As the U.S. experience in Iraq following the 2003 invasion made abundantly clear, failure to properly plan for risks associated with postconflict stabilization and reconstruction can have a devastating impact on the overall success of a military mission. In Waging War, Planning Peace, Aaron Rapport investigates how U.S. presidents and their senior advisers have managed vital noncombat activities while the nation is in the midst of fighting or preparing to fight major wars. He argues that research from psychology—specifically, construal level theory—can help explain how individuals reason about the costs of postconflict noncombat operations that they perceive as lying in the distant future. In addition to preparations for "Phase IV" in the lead-up to the Iraq War, Rapport looks at the occupation of Germany after World War II, the planned occupation of North Korea in 1950, and noncombat operations in Vietnam in 1964 and 1965. Applying his insights to these cases, he finds that civilian and military planners tend to think about near-term tasks in concrete terms, seriously assessing the feasibility of the means they plan to employ to secure valued ends. For tasks they perceive as further removed in time, they tend to focus more on the desirability of the overarching goals they are pursuing rather than the potential costs, risks, and challenges associated with the means necessary to achieve these goals. Construal level theory, Rapport contends, provides a coherent explanation of how a strategic disconnect can occur. It can also show postwar planners how to avoid such perilous missteps.

Timm Svensen, a successful German business manager has waited for years to find the woman of his dreams for a shared life. In 2005, during a vacation in Spain, what he has awaited for so long happens; he meets his dream woman; Roya Sassan. She is very attractive and intelligent, and embodies all the best qualities of a woman, which he has always imagined. Within a short time, this superficial acquaintance turns to a true love. During a joint trip from Spain to Germany, Roya and Timm occasionally notice that someone appears to be following them. They have no idea that one day before their journey, the members of a terrorist organization took advantage of Timm’s absence from home to load 120 kilos of explosives into the trunk of his car and disable the locking system of the boot. They intend to blow up a skyscraper in Frankfurt, where Timm’s company’s offices happen to be located. The Plan of a Terrorist Attack is a deeply moving, and a passionate love story. Nevertheless, in the background, the fearsome preparations for a terrorist attack create thrills and excitement. Amidst it all is the question of why the terrorists would aspire to such a murderous and costly operation, and who is really behind it; always Al Qaida?
