In Obama's Wars, Bob Woodward provides the most intimate and sweeping portrait yet of the young president as commander in chief.

Woodward has discovered how the Obama White House really works, showing that even more rough decisions lie ahead for the cerebral and engaged president. Obama's Wars offers the reader a stunning, you-are-there account of the president, his White House aides, military leaders, diplomats and intelligence chiefs in this time of turmoil and danger.--Book jacket.
