"The harrowing, true account from the brave men on the ground who fought back during the Battle of Benghazi. 13 HOURS presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack. 13 HOURS sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Written by New York Times bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff, this riveting book takes readers into the action-packed story of heroes who laid their lives on the line for one another, for their countrymen, and for their country. 13 HOURS is a stunning, eye-opening, and intense book--but most importantly, it is the truth. The story of what happened to these men--and what they accomplished--is unforgettable"--… (mer)

This was a good, non-politicized account of what happened at the Benghazi State/CIA facility. It's pretty much a blow-by-blow of the actual attack, with a bit of setting info beforehand (describing management conflicts, the CIA GRS, staffing levels, and general security posture and concerns). The shooters were lionized a but, but I'd say it was plausible and in keeping with what I know of that type of contractor (and especially interesting for me, the non-security staff who manned up and contributed to the defense of the compound during the attack). The book is a quick read; the audible audiobook version (which I read) was great.

The only downside was a lack of new information vs. what has been extensively reported, and a lack of research into the militias and pre/post incident security standards within State. Still, well worth the read. ( )

A heart-wrenching account of what happened when the attack happened in Benghazi. It is written by the men who actually lived it and from their perspective of what happened. Their actions were nothing short of heroic. Much needs to be learned from this incident from the standpoint of security. Their butts were basically hung out to dry and made even worse by repeated orders to "stand down" while their enemy gained momentum against them. It is a real tragedy that we may never know the full reasons why it happened or who is responsible. ( )

A stirring account of the defense of the Libyan diplomatic annex and the security force who attempted to defend the Americans there. While the issue became quit political as forces attempted to defend Obama and Clinton for their inaction and lies after the fact, the book itself presents an apolitical unvarnished account of the incident based solely on eyewitness testimony and documented evidence.

The author covers the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that resulted in a number of American deaths. This is a very detailed description on the action, but it will do little to explain why such an incident occurred and why the CIA and its private special forces where there. The author's telling reminds me of my youth when we played cowboys and Indians. A lot of bravado and a lot of shooting (but with real bullets). The writing is a bit repetitive in style. ( )

Pretty much gave me the impression that it was a cluster fuck from beginning to end, no one knew what was going on at any time, there was no clear leadership, just a bunch of overgrown boys with way too much testosterone running around playing cowboys and indians. ( )
