The attacks began with a rifle-butt knock on the guard booth glass and a curse command. From there, the September 11th, 2011 assaults on the Special Mission Compound and a nearby C.I.A. annex compound in Benghazi, Libya escalated into the murders of two high State Department officials and two C.I.A. contract workers. For the Annex Security Team who helped write this book, the Islamic militant assault marked the most harrowing thirteen hours of their lives, a seemingly endless period during which they fought and struggled to repel the zealot attackers who badly outnumbered them. In this galvanizing book, they tell their personal stories of that day, restoring a human immediacy to events still fiercely debated in Congress.
