Kaplan probes the inner corridors of the National Security Agency, the beyond-top-secret cyber units in the Pentagon, the "information warfare" squads of the military services, and the national security debates in the White House to tell this never-before-told story of the officers, policymakers, scientists, and spies who devised this new form of warfare and who have been planning - and, more often than people know, fighting - these wars for decades.
From the 1991 Gulf War to conflicts in Haiti, Serbia, Syria, the former Soviet republics, Iraq, and Iran, where cyber warfare played a significant role, Dark Territory chronicles, in fascinating detail, an unknown past that shines an unsettling light on our future.

Best narrator - Malcolm Hillgartner
I believe that cyber warfare or terrorism Is the greatest threat of our age, a much more likely threat than conventional warfare, and way more likely than nuclear war. This book outlines many of the main characters who've shaped the landscape of that arena on the governmental side and is a worthy read (listen).
The narrator, Malcolm Hillgartner, is one of the best in the business, not because he can do a variety of voices (not his strength), but because his voice has weight and authority - you just enjoy hearing him tell this kind of a story. I recommend this book and this narrator

Less technical, more historical. Very topical.
Most people with a fair amount of technical savvy, who are also tuned into the general flow of politics may find the story slow. But the topic is definitely worth a read. The story is mostly a high level historical account without much gripping technical detail or suggestions about potential risks for the future.
