THE FINISH. The Killing of Osama Bin Laden

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press. First edition. Hardcover. Card laid in "As this book was coming off press, one of the Navy SEALs who was on the raid on the Abbottabad compound published a book in which he gave an account of the shooting of bin Laden that differs slightly from the one that appears on p.229 of this book. He says that as he and two other SEALs were climbing the stairs to the third floor, a man stuck his head out from a doorway. Two shots from a suppressed gun were fired. He then entered the room to see bin Laden "with blood and brains spilling out of the side of his skull." He and another SEAL fired several rounds into his body until he was motionless. I assume this account is accurate though the account here was reviewed at the highest level of Special Forces Command and confirmed as accurate before the book went to press. All subsequent editions of this book will have a slightly expanded version of this addendum worked into the text,---Mark Bowden. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #15273
