An Epic Account of an American Tragedy 3. September 2013
Von John R. Bruning - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Fred Burton and Sam Katz are two of the nation's leading experts on radical Islamic terrorism. They've come together to unravel the tangled web of the attack in Benghazi in September 2012. In the process, they'e created a truly special book. At once inspiring, maddening, and ultimately, tragic, the book chronicles the ordeal of those brave Americans who faced the fires that day.

This book will rewrite the cloudy narrative of Benghazi once and for all. It is a must read for all Americans and anyone interested in understanding the implications the attack will have on the United States and its foreign relationships.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

An excellent account! 6. September 2013
Von Michelle Good - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This fact-filled account of a very difficult episode in our diplomatic efforts in a very dangerous foreign field at a critical time in world events is just awesome. I appreciated all the background and supporting information that was presented. At once I am outraged, horrified and ashamed to learn the details surrounding the loss of life of courageous Americans doing what they were trained for and passionate about. The telling of their story brings them due honor and should convict and humble our country's leadership

Fascinating. Tragic. 4. September 2013
Von Annie Jacobsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
An outstanding work of research and reporting. Burton, a veteran DSS officer, and Katz, a terrorism expert, used confidential sources and eyewitnesses to piece together the fateful story of what happened on the night of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi. Hard to put down. Fascinating pictures. I recommend this book to anyone interested in what is happening in the Middle East at the present time.

Great book if you want the truth in a non-partisan format 16. September 2013
Von Ken Andrews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Under Fire is a must read if you are interested in a non -partisan view of what happened in Benghazi. The authors use that event to explain both the Department of State's virtually unknown law enforcement entity called the Diplomatic Security Service(DSS) and how the US government protects its personnel overseas. The authors take the story of Benghazi and intertwine it with historical information from previous attacks against diplomatic missions. The bravery of the DS agents, alone and with little support, is a vivid reminder of the dangers faced by DSS agents overseas. The book serves as a credible history of violence against diplomatic facilities and of the genesis of the DSS as reflected in the firelight of Benghazi. It reads, however, more like a thriller than a history book.

Some reviewers have complained that there is nothing about the politics surrounding Benghazi. Nothing could have made me happier. The politics of Benghazi have dwarfed what actually happened; why it happened. Leaving out the controversy and political leanings allow the reader to make an informed decision on the event. Smart readers will still be able recognize where politics came into play, 'why wouldn't the State Department support the multiple requests from the Diplomatic Security agents in the field for more support?' Answers can be inferred, not only that it wasn't politically prudent but also that the upper management failed in their duties to support the field. Burton and Katz put the facts forward and let you make an informed decision.

Another reviewer wonders why there was no military rescue attempt yet there are pages devoted to the military, and their response (or lack thereof) capabilities. Again, I thank Burton and Katz for treating their reader with intelligence. Chapter 13 explains all the different military possibilities and why the military was unprepared (with no negative connotations) to respond.

The story of Benghazi is real life. While there are heroes, it is devoid of the inaccurate portrayals of diplomatic facilities overseas. There are not 100 marines in full `battle rattle' (as the book calls it) sitting around to respond to an attack. There is no SEAL team sitting around waiting to deploy in 5 seconds ready to save the day. There are 5 agents fighting for their lives, waiting for support from the only other trustworthy source, other Americans working at a nearby Annex. We know the event called Benghazi, but this book tells you what happened.

An Apolitical Account of Benghazi 5. Oktober 2013
Von James Casey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Full disclosure - I was a Diplomatic Security (DS) agent for a short period of time before retiring from the FBI after 25 years, and am a long-time associate of author Fred Burton; That said, readers intent on discovering a political explanation from either side of the aisle will not find one here in this description of the attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi last year. If you strongly believe the attack was a result of an anti-Islamic video, or you think there was a vast coverup of the facts by the Obama Administration, you are likely to hold to your position after finishing the book. What you will discover is a very detailed account of the initial attack against the U.S. Special Mission Compound that resulted in the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador and one of his important subordinates. There is a less detailed account of the second attack at the Annex, a (quasi-covert) CIA facility a mile away which ended with the deaths of two CIA contractors who were providing tactical security. Since Burton was a long-time Diplomatic Security agent, it is obvious he had insight into the facts concerning the initial attack, but equally obvious he and Katz had less intelligence concerning the second attack several hours later. Using colorful descriptors, the authors take you from an earlier attack on a British diplomatic contingency in Libya to the violent breach of the U.S. compound on September 11, 2012 with deft credibility. If you like to read about gear, there is great detail about the tactical equipment in use today by the State Department's overseas protection professionals at DS, the CIA, and our special forces. My one complaint is that despite their obvious access to insiders, the footnotes contain an over-reliance on less convincing sources such as the Daily Beast.
