On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of the raid that captured bin Laden to life. Kids will feel as though they are in the room with President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the others in the cabinet who called for and monitored the raid. Primary source quotations make the event feel immediate, and photographs by the White House photographer add to the immediacy, and the understanding of the risks and dangers posed by the ultimately successful mission.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The Captured History series continues to be top-tier nonfiction. Featuring a significant historical photograph on each book's cover, the titles then go on to explain the history behind it and the importance of the event. Inside the Situation Room begins with the photo of President Barack Obama and his national security team, including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, watching SEAL Team 6's strike on the compound of Osama bin Laden. The book then goes on to describe bin Laden's terrorist history and the hunt to find him after 9/11. The photograph is used as a jumping-off point to discuss the sit-in movement, which was made possible, in part, by the proliferation of visual images. The texts for both books are thoughtfully and comprehensively written and are bolstered by many photographs as well chosen as the cover shot. The photographers of these now-iconic images are also profiled. Excellent choices for history shelves.--Ilene Cooper Copyright 2018 Booklist"
