Publisher Description

13 HOURS is the true account of the events of 11 September 2012, when terrorists attacked a US State Compound and a nearby CIA station in Libya, one of the most dangerous corners of the globe. On that fateful day, a team of six American security operators stationed in Benghazi fought to repel mounting enemy forces and escalating firepower, to protect the Americans stationed there, including the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Going beyond the call of duty, the team ignored orders to stand down and instead choked back smoke, fought wave after wave of machine-gun fire and retook the Compound, averting tragedy on a much larger scale – although four Americans would not make it out alive.

Recounting the 13 hours of the now infamous attack, this personal account is both blistering and compelling, and sets the story straight about what really happened on the ground, in the streets and on the rooftops.

Great book

Really good read, I watched and love the film, and was adamant about getting the book.

Loved it, hard to put down in the end.

Excellent

I pre ordered the film as soon as I could iTunes. And that was a good watch but it left me. Wanting to know more about what went on. This book answers every thing I have never listened to a audiobook but it is just excellent. And big respect to the operators so brave a credit to there family's and the men and units that trained them.
