Editorial Reviews

Review

"Concise, clear, and constructively combative, Dr. Gorka's book stands apart in its depth of understanding of Islamist terrorists and what their ultimate defeat demands of us. Above all, his defiance of political correctness makes this well- written, finely argued work of immediate practical value. The author has presented us with an inspiring defense not merely of intellectual integrity--so lacking among today's intelligentsia--but of our civilization."
--RALPH PETERS, Fox News strategic analyst and author of Valley of the Shadow

"Dr. Sebastian Gorka is one of the world's leading experts in asymmetric warfare. In Defeating Jihad you get a glimpse of why his opinion matters in councils of war and in academia. He combines the perceptive with the analytic, the piercing intellect with the grit of real-world experience."
--STEPHEN K. BANNON, executive chairman of Breitbart News

"America is at war, an unconventional war against a new totalitarian enemy. Sebastian Gorka understands this kind of war and the mind of our new enemy. This book provides America with a strategy to destroy ISIS or any group that follows the ideology of global jihad."
--LT. GEN. CHARLES T. CLEVELAND, U.S. Army (Ret.), former Commanding General of U.S. Army Special Operations Command, home of the Green Berets

"For years Dr. Gorka has been telling the truth about the existential danger of jihadism. The threat is real and it is here in America. With ISIS even more danger- ous than Al Qaeda, it is time to listen to what this man has to say. Defeating Jihad must be the foundation of our next commander in chief's plan to win this war."
--CONGRESSMAN TRENT FRANKS (R-Ariz.), member of the House Armed Services Committee

"This is a tremendous book!"
--TRISH REAGAN, On Fox's The Intelligence Report

From the Inside Flap

THE WINNABLE WAR

Since September 11, 2001, America has been at war. And that's about all anyone can say with certainty about a conflict that has cost 7,000 American lives and almost $2 trillion. As long as the most basic strategic questions--Who is the enemy? Why are we fighting?--remain unanswered, victory is impossible.

Yet this war is eminently winnable if we remove our ideological blinders and apply basic strategic principles. That means accu- rately naming the enemy, understanding his plan, and drawing up a strategy to defeat him. So says Dr. Sebastian Gorka, one of the most experienced and sought-after authorities on counterterrorism.

Our enemy is not "terror" or "violent extremism." Our enemy is the global jihadi movement, a modern totalitarian ideology rooted in the doctrines and martial history of Islam. America has defeated totalitarian enemies before. Providing a desperately needed dose of clarity, Dr. Gorka shows how we can do it again.

He reveals how a toxic political agenda has corrupted our national security practices, precluding the kind of clear-eyed threat analysis and strategic response that led to victory in the Cold War. Bracing, troubling, but ultimately encouraging, Defeating Jihad fills that gap.

Taking his cue from the formerly top- secret analyses that shaped the U.S. response to the communist threat, Dr. Gorka has produced a compelling profile of the jihadi movement--its mind and motivation--and a plan to defeat it.
