Grateful thanks to those dedicated to guarding our freedoms.
Much appreciation and gratitude for the men and women who collaborated to bring this piece of history to light.
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.
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.

Unbelievable story. How can people be so mean. Why in 2016 do we still fight religious wars? Some people have to ask themslves some questions.Published 26 days ago by Pierre Archambault
Well written, the book stuck to the facts yet told an impelling story. It does have a slight lean towards the operators but is understood.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
