One of the most sensitive, top secret missions eliminated America’s number one terrorist target, Osama bin Laden, but the celebration was almost immediately tempered by thorny questions. How did the U.S. finally catch up with the terrorist mastermind who eluded capture for nearly a decade? Why was he able to hide in plain sight just yards away from Pakistan’s most prestigious military academy? Was he able to direct attacks from his hideout?

National Geographic reveals the inside story of how the U.S. gathered the intelligence needed to pull off the surprise attack, with insight from former CIA agents, Navy SEAL operatives and high-ranking government officials, including retired general and CIA director David Petraeus. Acclaimed journalist Peter Bergenthe first Westerner to whom Osama bin Laden revealed his intention to wage a terrorist war on the West, and who is one of a small handful to have even met himheads to Pakistan for answers on the ground.
