Kudos to the author. And Bravo Zulu to the defenders.
I bought the book because events were not clear to me after I saw the movie.
The author keeps his focus on the account while avoiding the temptation to pass any judgements.
But from the facts, it's clear the ambassador misjudged the situation in Benghazy. The visit was ill-timed and he carried with him an inadequate protection detail.
He died in the first half-hour of the attack,so it's not clear also that a sooner response by the operators could had saved his live.
The congressional inquiry cleared the CIA station chief of any wrongdoing but the operators maintained their account that they were delayed unjustifiable, preventing a timely response to the attack.
should never take that long to get our soldiers reinforcements.
It gave a vivid picture of the heroes that were there that night and not only did you get to know each of them there was a short bio so you knew how they came to be there and what their future plans were.
There were no slow or down times; it keeps you riveted from start to finish. It is so detailed you almost felt like you are there as the story unfolds.
