Publisher's Summary

CNN’s chief national security correspondent reveals the invisible fronts of 21st-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.

A must read

Well written and narration by the author is terrific. This is a compelling and well researched cautionary tale. It is scary, as it lays out the treats presented to America and indeed the world, by Russia and China. It also delineates strategies to defuse these threats...recommended by very knowledgeable experts. It should be mandatory reading for all politicians and departmental decision makers! A great book written by a true patriot!

Twilight Zone In Real Time

The Shadow War scares me because of America's late start in regards to computer coding, along with the inability to speak multiple languages and being behind China and Russia in regards to their technological advancements. . . Mr. Sciutto's narration is exceptional. He makes this story perfectly clear, America must catch-up with not one, but two superpowers. . . This is a splendid audiobook. It's concise within it's narrative and extremely thought-provoking. A must-read or listen too...🎧📲

Makes me wonder; is America really ready for a simultaneous, three prong, Shadow War, were it to happen today?🤔😢

Wake Up America.

Our country is currently divided and is getting more fragmented with each passing week. If it's not over impeachment, it's over abortion, or LGTB or immigration. Yes, all of these issues are important but we're so busy pointing fingers and blaming at each other without realizing that the "wolf" is getting closer and closer. He loves our confusion and bikering, which gives him more power to continue attacking us slowly, day by day. America, countrymen and women, STOP your drama. Stop worrying about what's going on inside our house, and start preparing on how to defend it from the "wolf" that's over that hill watching us and salivating for the right time to attacks us when we less expect it.

succinct

Not too political and very succinct in its telling. Gives some good information I wasn't aware of before. He does a very good job with his first hand accounts and walks through some of the backgrounds that lead up to current events you might not have put together before.

The best part it is not full of Nepostism of the US being helpless but instead provides hope that if we pay attention, we very well can be the country that continues to steer world policy. And thank God for that.
