“Chilling . . . Extraordinary and urgent.” — Washington Post

“Scary but well documented . . . A deep dive into the world of cyber war and cyber warriors.” — Los Angeles Times

“Unsettling . . . A deeply informative account of how corporations, governments, and even individuals are rapidly perfecting the ability to monitor and sabotage the Internet infrastructure.” — Christian Science Monitor

The wars of the future are already being fought today. The United States military currently views cyberspace as the “fifth domain” of warfare (alongside land, air, sea, and space), and the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency, and the CIA all field teams of hackers who can, and do, launch computer virus strikes against enemy targets. As recent revelations have shown, government agencies are joining with tech giants like Google and Facebook to collect vast amounts of information, and the military has also formed a new alliance with tech and finance companies to patrol cyberspace. Shane Harris offers a deeper glimpse into this partnership than we have ever seen before, and he explains what the new cyber security regime means for all of us who spend our daily lives bound to the Internet—and are vulnerable to its dangers.

@War is superb . . . Rigorous, comprehensive, and a joy to read.” — Lawfare

Comments:

It’s a great overview of the current state of cyber warfare and the parts of the Iraq War that weren’t really covered by most news outlets. It isn’t alarmist, for the most part. It’s sober in dealing in what is frankly a very silent and invisible part of the modern war landscape. Great read if you want an even-handed account of what has been happening here over the last few years.
