Summary:

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

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.

    Loved it!

  • Kyle Johnson

    Good book for those who enjoy the non-fiction narrative combat genre. (e.g Blackhawk Down, etc). Well narrated. Weak movie. Read / listen to the book instead.

  • Christopher Zott

    These guys were warriors. Proves the glaring missteps that certainly could have been avoided to save lives. Haven't seen the movie, but as they always say the book is better. True again in this case.

  • Rudy Bennor

    The book gives the detail that the movie could not in the time allowed. A fantastic account of what these brave former military combat veterans and CIA staff did to protect what the US government did not care to protect. God bless this country with those that are brave enough to stand up and defend what the rest of the country would rather run away from. Without brave Americans like those at this forsaken outpost, we will become a footnote of history. 'A country that had great promise but threw it away because of petty self interests.'

  • Mike Morgan

    Must Listen, highly recommended for any red blooded American. Much respect for those involved.

  • Kyle Campbell

    Amazing story! Glad I choose this book and would recommend it to anyone.

  • Paras Ramani

    Blend of history, truth and harrowing descriptions that makes you feel every moment.

  • Stephanie Hott

    Real eye opener. One of the better books I've read this year.

  • Karen Jacobson

    Great narration and storytelling of the tragic events in Benghazi. The American security operators were all heroic and deserved better back up. The narration was easy to listen to and hard to stop listening to. Highly recommended.
