13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi – Book Review

A saga of survivors and the fallen ones, brilliantly portrayed by Mitchell Zuckoff a Redstone Professor of Narrative Studies at Boston University. The book tries to unravel the mysteries for the very first time of the tightly-knit events of September, 11, 2012 when terrorists attacked the U.S State’s Special Mission Compound in Benjazi nearby a CIA station called Annex.

The lingering suggestions made by Zuckoff endorse the claims that those six American Security officers fought upfront in the dark shadows of the night to repel and protect the Americans posted there. It’s an epic story of how these men went beyond the call of duty to avert tragedy on a massive scale. The book acknowledges the rancorous debates, lapses in security, and most importantly, the personal account of those brave men performing extraordinary acts of heroism in those 13 unforgettable hours.

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.

A harrowing, nerve-wracking, and intense chain of events that presents a hard slap on the failure of the U.S state department trying to shroud it in controversy and mystery. The soon-to-be-released film in January 2016 will surely mark its existence on the biggest cover-ups the U.S. Department tried and depicts the haunting and gruesome experiences of the men who suffered.

13 Hours is an eye-opener narrative impetus that derives the focus on the brave men who fought for their countrymen that night; it ends with a silent addendum of the survivors making it home. Zuckoff has achieved something that future historians will always cherish and find indispensable. The work is true art and the bigger, real picture needs to be portrayed on a wider scale.
