May 2, 2011 marked the completion of a mission that had begun even before the devastating day of September 11, 2001. BROUGHT TO JUSTICE
is a riveting, dramatic, informed and sometimes surprising illustrated portrait of Osama bin Laden and America's efforts to find him and track him down.
At pivotal moments in world events, readers have long looked to LIFE to tell the story. In BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, the editors have sought out the best and most distinctive and revealing photographs - including rarities - from the Department of Defense and the White Houses official photographer Pete Souza, among many others. There are also pictures from bin Laden family albums, and many from inside the secretive world of al-Qaeda.
The editors of LIFE have researched bin Laden's life story and provide context (and, more important, truth) to his strange, twisting biography. In these pages, you will come to know, if not necessarily understand, Osama bin Laden: his rage, his insecurity, his narcissism and his deep well of hatred.
Profiles the terrorist leader of al-Qaida, who orchestrated the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, and describes his assassination by the U.S. government in May of 2011.
BROUGHT TO JUSTICE is a history of Osama bin Laden's infamous campaign against America and our decade-long attempt to fi nd and bring him to justice. Produced by the same team of LIFE editors who created One Nation (LB, 11/01), the defi nitive book on the 9/11 attacks, this thorough and timely volume includes photographs taken from inside Al Qaeda and in battlegrounds around the globe—including New York City, Somalia, Tora Bora and, fi nally, Abbottabad. The last chapter includes a detailed depiction of the mission that eliminated bin Laden, with images from his Pakistani compound and the Washington, D.C., war room.
