The inside story-plans, strategies, casualties, letters-of the crackdown on terrorist groups by the Philippines military with the support of elite US Special forces, with no details spared.

The War on Terror recounts how the military cracked the operations of the Abu Sayyaf Group, Jemaah Islamiyah, and the al-Qaeda in the Philippines with the help of the US government. It details the activities of the terrorists and even the drama during the time that they were holding American couple Martin and Gracia Burnham, as well as unveils the contents of the terrorists' letters to their families, friends, acquaintances, and to the people who negotiated for the freedom of the Burnhams.
