The First War on Terrorism by David C Wills pdf free download. In 1994,while I was student-teaching at a southern California high school, a friend gave me a copy of Tom Clancy’s Sum of All Fears. I was immediately fascinated by the tale of terrorists and their use of weapons of mass destruction. I wanted to learn more.

I remember very distinctly that my chairman was wary about the project and advised caution, saying that research on terrorism had a
tendency to be “fringe.” But that was in early 1998.Today, of course, the entire civilized world recognizes the importance of the topic. If we are to understand the phenomena, and counter it effectively today and in the future, we must not forget the lessons that were hard-learned by past administrations. That is the point of this book-to remember. The media and decision-makers today talk about the war on terrorism as though it is something new. It is not. President Reagan, in particular, confronted an appallingly large number of attacks, and his administration’s successes and failures are instructive for today.
