A Timely Read

 
This book gave me some great insight into ISIS on a historical and organisational level. The author uses a great array of sources to give the reader a well-researched overview.

I found the historical part of this book very engaging and the authors do a solid job in putting together all the complicated pieces in a manner that is easy to read. Another aspect of this book that I found riveting was the high level of organisation and planning that ISIS use in its campaigns. They appear to be functioning at an extremely high level and this is what is contributing to its ability to punch way above its weight. It is also a very terrifying realisation to come to.

Overall this book gives the reader a good overview of ISIS and the related issues. It is a timely book and as given me a new perspective on the subject.
