After reading "The Embassy" I was stunned by the complexities, and challenges that were overcome by the sheer courage of our American Ambasador, and the Public Servants who assisted him, in bringing order to pure chaos. A hard to put down narrative of Heroism and Collorbarative Diplomacy in a country that at the time could only be compared to Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". A must read for anyone interested in the Foreign Service.
