Product Description

Review

"A minute-by-minute account of what they saw, thought and did on the night of Sept. 11-12 in Benghazi...nerve-wracking."―The Washington Post

"A crisply written, gripping narrative of the events of the battle in Benghazi that adds considerable detail to the public record of what happened there...[an] authoritative account."―The Wall Street Journal

"A great number of journalists and government instrumentalities have tilted at Benghazi...All of those efforts look fragmentary when placed side-by-side with 13 HOURS.'"―The Washington Post

"13 HOURS provide(s) a moving reminder of the sacrifice made by these men who had voluntarily put themselves in harm's way, and who 'believed in their work and their country.'"―The Boston Globe

"13 HOURS...sets the record straight for historians to ponder."―-The Buffalo News

This book records events leading up to the Benghazi attack and more specifically the 13 hours of the attack at the Compound and the Annex. Before reading this account, all I'd read were news and social media accounts of Benghazi. This gives the truth, without the media frenzy and hype, from those involved in defending the attacks. Essential to know and highly recommended.

Grateful thanks to those dedicated to guarding our freedoms.

I very interesting read from the perspective of those who were there on the ground. Being ex-military (airborne infantry) the book was hard to read at times due to the lack of action and effective response of the US State Departement. The US Ambassador's death was preventable, as were a number of others.

Much appreciation and gratitude for the men and women who collaborated to bring this piece of history to light.

Tells the story in great detail of exactly what happened that night and is very thorough. While the detail is what Zuckoff was trying to capture, the book bogs down in it and becomes tedious reading at times. Additional details around what the military and government was doing above and beyond the actions on the ground in Benghazi would have added more perspective even though the author was specifically trying to avoid any "political" dynamic in the book. However, the political situation was very much a factor both during and after the events on the ground.

This is an excellent account of what happened on the ground during the Benghazi attack, which occurred on the night of 9-11-2012, as experienced by the security staff at the US Diplomatic Compound and at the CIA Annex.

This would have been a great book if it were fiction, but given the fact it is a true storey it is hard hitting. It is heartwarming that there are men out there who put their lives on the line for the good of protecting others. I have yet to read a book that accounts as well as this does the mind sets of men under attack

Amazing book, extremely well written narrative and thoroughly researched.

Take what you will on what the US Congressional hearings say on the Benghazi movie, this book tries to go past the politics to simply tell the Security Team's story on the matter. The book is entirely told from the perspective of the account of the operators and Zuckoff claims the times,claims, and actions are supported by supporting witnesses at the event. It was hard to put down, you get the sense of emotions from the operators as you flip the pages.

Even if you do not believe what the operators or what the film has to say, to get a real "Balanced" perspective, this is a must read.

At the beginning it says that this also happened in 1967! Tells the stories of security forces hired (former military) for additional protection in hostile foreign cities. They reside in a CIA location called 'The Annex'.Profiles their abilities which are significant.

When the attack first occurs they are told to wait. When they do get to go the place has been set on fire and they rescue who they can. They return to The Annex and face additional attacks. Swearing. Insightful.

This is a revealing writing about the events leading up to the attack, the attack itself, and the following coverup. Zuckoff is an excellent researcher and an enthralling writer.
