Description

CNN's Chief National Security Correspondent reveals the invisible fronts of twenty-first century warfare and identifies the ongoing battles being waged—often without the public's full knowledge—from disinformation campaigns to advanced satellite weaponry.

The United States is currently under attack from multiple adversaries—yet most Americans have no idea of the dangers threatening us. In this eye-opening audiobook, military and intelligence expert and seasoned reporter Jim Sciutto traces the expanding web of attacks that together amount to an undeclared but deeply dangerous war on America.

With in-depth reporting from Ukraine to the South China Sea, Cuba to the earth's atmosphere, unprecedented access to America's Space Command, and new information from inside the intelligence agencies tracking election interference, Sciutto draws on his deep knowledge, high-level contacts, and personal experience as a journalist and diplomat to paint the most comprehensive and vivid picture of a nation targeted by a new and disturbing brand of warfare.

America is engaged in a Shadow War on multiple fronts, with multiple enemies. The practitioners include America's most familiar adversaries: Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran. But unlike conventional warfare, these conflicts are conducted in the shadows, with no formal declaration and often use multiple sources, from influential businessmen and lawyers to hackers. And it is happening today.

But America is adapting and fighting back. In The Shadow War, Sciutto introduces the dizzying array of soldiers, sailors, submariners and their commanders, space engineers, computer scientists, and civilians who are on the front lines of this new kind of forever war. Intensive and disturbing, this invaluable and important work opens our eyes and makes clear that future war is here.

        April 22, 2019
        America’s Cold War adversaries are challenging it by conventional and unconventional means, according to this sometimes alarming, sometimes underwhelming exposé. CNN national security correspondent and anchorman Sciutto surveys a grab bag of initiatives that, he contends, undermine America’s global dominance. These include Russia’s disruption of Estonia’s internet in 2007, its 2014 annexation of Crimea and support for pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine who accidentally shot down an airliner, and its development of submarines and missiles that could target America. Beijing, meanwhile, has stolen blueprints for American warplanes, built artificial islands to cement its claims to the South China Sea, and created an advanced navy. Sciutto discusses these matters with Western intelligence officials who deplore Washington’s dithering and rides along on a U. S. surveillance flight and an American submarine to provide colorful front-line reportage. Sciutto’s case lumps together trivial concerns with important ones: he explores some developments that pose real danger, such as Russian and Chinese space weapons that could destroy American military and telecommunications satellites, but also rehashes discredited claims about Russia’s collusion with the Trump campaign. The result is a muddled hodgepodge of geostrategic anxieties. Agent: Gail Ross, Ross Yoon Agency.
