Any general insights from these books?

So coming back to this.

Terror in France: jihad in France in currently represented by a third generation of radical Islamists and has been incubating in its banlieues and prisons, aided by the growth of the Internet and social media. The religious/political ideology is fueled by Salafist teachers.

America's War for the Greater Middle East: we enter Middle Eastern conflicts for a supposed limited purpose, but end up in sustained conflicts for which there is no political will, so our strategy (if we even have one) is hampered by domestic considerations.

The Terror Years: as I mentioned, more a series of vignettes, but the sections dealing with Zawahiri and issues within Islamism were enlightening, i.e., there are disagreements between and within these jihadi networks about the use of violence that could potentially be exploited.
