Summary
On the night of September 11, 2012, the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, Libya, came under ferocious attack by a heavily armed group of Islamic terrorists. The prolonged firefight, and the attack hours later on a nearby CIA outpost, resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the American ambassador to Libya. Based on the cooperation of eyewitnesses and confidential sources, the authors explore the terrifying twelve-hour ordeal confronted by the Ambassador, his security contingent, and the CIA specialists who raced to rescue them
Summary
A minute-by-minute narrative account of the September 11, 2012 attack at the U.S. consulate in Libya recounts the brutal twelve-hour engagement with Islamic militants that ended the life of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans
