Contents SEAL Team Six -- Who was Osama bin Laden? -- The long wait -- The Middle East after bin Laden.
Summary On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of the raid that captured bin Laden to life. Kids will feel as though they are in the room with President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the others in the cabinet who called for and monitored the raid. Primary source quotations make the event feel immediate, and photographs by the White House photographer add to the immediacy, and the understanding of the risks and dangers posed by the ultimately successful mission.
