Red Line, by Joby Warrick

Staff Pick

Washington Post journalist Joby Warrick puts his proven research and narrative skills to work to tell the story of Syria’s chemical weapons program from its early development to its use in a sarin attack in 2013 (despite President Obama’s attempt to draw a red line), to the removal and destruction the following year of Syria’s declared stockpile, to the later use of chlorine gas—which was available on the commercial market—and eventually the reappearance of nerve gas, because Syria had kept some capability in reserve. Written like a thriller and with remarkable detail, the book illuminates an especially gruesome aspect of Syria’s brutal civil war.
