Riveting. This book puts you in the action on the tragic night of September 11-12 in Benghazi, Libya. I didn’t know much about what happened that night except for what is in the news. I wanted to know what really happened, without the political slant that all the news outlets seem to add these days.
Unlike the other book I read (Under Fire), this book brings the action to life in a edge-of-your-seat kind of way. Told by the author after intense interviews with the Annex Security Team, it gives you insight into what was going through the minds of the brave men (and women) who were serving the US Government that night.
Tragically, 3 operators and the Ambassador to Libya lost their lives in the assault on the diplomatic compound and the CIA annex. Heart wrenching as it is, their story is one of courage and bravery in the face of absolute hate.
