In this explosive book, New York Times bestselling author Bill Gertz uncovers the most significant threat to US national security today: America’s enemies—including radical terrorist groups—are arming themselves with the world’s most dangerous weapons. And they’re doing it with the help of America’s supposed allies. Worst of all, the United States has let it happen.

Only Bill Gertz has the contacts and the knowledge to tell the complete story of how France, Germany, Russia, China, and other countries have armed our enemies to the teeth. Treachery is also the definitive account of what the US government is doing to counter the threat—and of how our leaders have too often failed us.

  • Treachery, with its reams of classified and other inside information, reveals how our nation's enemies obtain weapons from China, Russia, France, Germany, and other supposed friends. The book is must-reading if you want to know the confidential story of the growing danger of global arms proliferation.”

    Rowan Scarborough, Pentagon reporter, Washington Times, and bestselling author of Rumsfeld's War

  • “Bill Gertz gets it! Treachery brilliantly exposes our allies who have become our enemies in the War on Terror just because the UN, France, Germany, and Russia looked at Iraq and other rogue states as trading partners rather than enablers of terrorism. This is a major piece of work in the War on Terror.”

    Lieutenant General Thomas G. McInerney, USAF (Ret.), bestselling author of Endgame

  • “[Gertz] has access to more intelligence information than anyone I know.”

    Former Defense Secretary William S. Cohen

  • “Two big factors will determine America’s national security over the next twenty years. The first is the capability of our military systems as determined by the health of our defense industrial base. And, second, the extent to which our adversaries are able to buy or steal advanced military technology from the US and our allies. Bill Gertz focuses superbly on the hemorrhaging of critical military technology to our enemies. Treachery should be read by all our policymakers.”

    Congressman Duncan Hunter of California, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee
