It 's also highly informative about not only the events themselves, but prior to that, about Libya 's state before and after the fall of Gaddafi.The writing of the poet is what you 'd expect from a journalist: to the point and making an impression.

I shy from saying that I enjoyed his style, because the events of 13 Hours are so horrifying that I ca n't say there is any place for enjoying anything in it.That does n't, of course, mean that it 's a goo ook.

On the ontrary, the novelist is actually challenging some of the decisions that the American government made that night, which on the other hand makes me feel admiration to the uthor, as well as the Benghazi operatives.

So much, in fact, that I 'm actually willing to show trust, to a degree, whereas I usually have very mixed feelings about books depicting either side of a war, because I always expect too much bias and therefore changing up the events as the author sees fit.

With 13 Hours I think it 's ossible to accept that the account of the casualties is as simplistic as it can be.There are a few excitin things surrounding the 9/11/2012 events though.1.

But it is onvenient for these brainwashed freaks to use their religion as an excuse to massacre thousands and millions of people, including their own, and this is omething for which I think death is too little of a punishment.* All of this is as relevant today as it was three years ago, since as everyone is aware, the rutality in the Middle East has not ceased and has, in fact, become even more horrifying.2.

We give up as many lives as necessary and we spin the tale about how our interest lies in protecting our people and not stealing the oil of North Africa and the Middle East.Here is the recipe:1 x Dead ambassador aka an official representative of the United States.3 x ( or as many as possible) Dead soldiers who were doing their duty, protecting their comrades, fighting for their beloved country= thousands of freshly motivated soldiers to continue spilling blood, thinking that this was is actually to protect the lives of their families, who are in fact thousands of miles away and least touched by these wars;= USA keeps on fighting the good oil wars, money keeps spilling in, power keeps growing, on top of that we are helping out the world because there clearly can not be so many people, aye?

It 's written by Mitchell Zuckoff, an author i knew that can write a gripping non-fiction narrative, so, just based on the author i decided to read this one.

Me, the ignorant fool, did n't know about the pecifics of the incident, so it read like a gripping thriller, only it was a real thing.

Recommended for those who want read a first hand account of this Benghazi incident, just that, bullshit accounts about the man things can be found somewhere else.

In case you aren ’ t familiar with the ackstory ( if you have no idea what this novel is about do everyone in the U.S. a favor and refrain from voting in the next election – I don ’ t really care which way individuals swing, but people who know nothing about pretty in-your-face news events scare the rap out of me) it goes a lil ’ something like this: Libya is an itty bitty country in Africa that has a deadly combo of a lot of money and a history of political strife.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens so happened to be in Benghazi on a most historic anniversary – that of September 11th.

Residing in a “ secret ” location called the Compound, Ambassador Stevens was surrounded by State Department staff.

They ’ re smart people, but smart doesn ’ t outsmart a bullet. ”

When the poo hit the fan and the gates of the main Compound were flooded with dozens of armed men it was those men who risked their lives when the hired help ( and pretty much anything else) failed to save the day.

well because generally I read my movies.

My boyfriend picked this memoi up from our local library as he stays up to date on all military news stuff, I on the other hand know who we are at war with and about big news stories, but other than that sadly not so much.

To these people honor and dedication to one another was the key to their being there.

It is a graphic account of the 13 hours from start to end of the attac.

Strongest recommendation for anyone interested in history, the warrior, current events! 5 Stars for 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi, the retellin of the six Annex Security Team members who ran to the ound of gunfire on 9/11/12 in Benghazi.

This is a tightly-knit account of what happened from the first terrorists entering the Special Mission Compound, the ttacks on the CIA Annex and concludes when all the Americans have flown out.

If you saw the TV special with 3 of the team members, you will still learn much more from the bestselling.

They left the Annex against “ stand-down ” orders from a senior member of the onsite team.

Until this account, I had no idea what the other Americans were doing, where they were or how they survived in the attack that killed the ambassador and the communications expert.It is scandalous that this tal is only coming out 2 years after the vent.
