The "New York Times" bestselling inside account of the attack
against the U.S. diplomatic and intelligence outposts in Benghazi,
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, Christopher Stevens, the Information Officer, Sean Smith,
and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, working
for the Central Intelligence Agency.
After the fall of Qaddafi, Benghazi was transformed into a hotbed
of fundamentalist fervor and a den of spies for the northern half
of the African continent. Moreover, it became the center of gravity
for terrorist groups strategically situated in the violent
whirlwinds of the Arab Spring. On the eleventh anniversary of the
9/11 attacks against the United States, a group of heavily armed
Islamic terrorists had their sights set on the U.S. diplomatic and
intelligence presence in the city.
Based on the exclusive cooperation of eyewitnesses and confidential
sources within the intelligence, diplomatic, and military
communities, Fred Burton and Samuel M. Katz reveal for the first
time the terrifying twelve-hour ordeal confronted by Ambassador
Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, his Diplomatic Security (DS)
contingent, and the CIA security specialists who raced to rescue
More than just the minute-by-minute narrative of a desperate last
stand in the midst of an anarchic rebellion, "Under Fire" is an
inspiring testament to the bravery and selflessness of the men and
women who put their country first while serving in one of the most
dangerous regions in the world.
