about this book

Hezbollah is the most powerful Islamist group operating in the Middle East today, and no other Western journalist has penetrated as deeply inside this secretive organization as Nicholas Blanford. With Warriors and God, Blanford has written the first comprehensive inside account of Hezbollah and its enduring struggle against Israel.

Based on more than a decade and a half of reporting in Lebanon and conversations with Hezbollah's determined fighters, Blanford reveals their ideology, motivations, and training, as well as new information on military tactics, weapons, and sophisticated electronic warfare and communications systems. In the process, he shows how Hezbollah has won hearts and minds with exhaustive social welfare programs and sophisticated propaganda skills. Featuring sixteen years of probing interviews with Hezbollah's leaders and fighters, Warriors of God is essential to understanding a key player in a region rocked by change and uncertainty.

Praise for Warriors of God:

"Veteran Middle East correspondent Blanford (Killing Mr. Lebanon) draws on his 17 years covering Lebanon for this detailed and timely account of the rise of the Lebanese resistance group. . . . Blanford offers a smart, comprehensive, and valuable look inside the workings of perhaps 'the most powerful nonstate military organization in the world.'"
