Day Of Wrath
Day of Wrath is an amazing title written by William in 2014. The title is about the rising threat of ISIS, the situation in the region it is operational and the great losses of lives. How, a small coupe on the northern Iraq turned from a surprise attack to a movement that became a global crisis.
William has taken a great care to ensure that he is able to prove his point that the impact of ISIL is even worse than what was done to the Jews in WWII. He draws a great analogy to support his points over the issue.
He elaborates that an AK 47 is not as dangerous as a tweet in today’s world. He states that a single tweet can put thousands of lives in danger while an AK can kill only a few.
He has given a clear understanding of the hidden agenda or mission behind beheadings, fire and execution of Christians on camera. Instead of direct warfare, the ISIL is doing a psychological warfare. On one hand it is attracting a lot of people into their army and creating a great mental pressure of the developed economies like America, where thousands of people see it as an imminent threat.
Day of Wrath is an amazing book to read and gives you an insight into the global challenge and the reasons why no western organization or government is stepping up for a complete ban on ISIS.
