13 Hours presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya. This is the story, told in incredible, spine-tingling detail, of what happened on the ground—in the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex, as told by the men who faced terrorism head-on—and lived to share the story.

Written by New York Times bestselling author Mitch Zuckoff with members of the Annex Security Team, 13 Hours puts readers inside the action, relating how these brave men worked heroically under pressure to save lives. They performed extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, that if not for them, Benghazi would have been a tragedy on a much larger order.

13 Hours is a stunning, eye-opening, and intense book—but most importantly, it is the truth. The story of what happened to these men is unforgettable.

A crisply written, gripping narrative of the events of the battle in Benghazi that adds considerable detail to the public record of what happened there...[an] authoritative account. The Wall Street Journal
“A crisply written, gripping narrative of the events of the battle in Benghazi that adds considerable detail to the public record of what happened there…[an] authoritative account.” Wall Street Journal
“A great number of journalists and government instrumentalities have tilted at Benghazi…All of those efforts look fragmentary when placed side-by-side with 13 Hours.” Washington Post
13 Hours provide[s] a moving reminder of the sacrifice made by these men who had voluntarily put themselves in harm’s way, and who ‘believed in their work and their country.’” Boston Globe
13 Hours…sets the record straight for historians to ponder.” Buffalo News
“Journalist Zuckoff has a knack for recreating the emotional intensity of combat in his reading of his book…Zuckoff effectively conveys the camaraderie of the team of CIA contract operators…prior to the attack. Zuckoff’s evocative delivery also successfully captures the ambiguity of the conflict, as the soldiers find themselves unsure of exactly who they are fighting and how to engage the enemy.” Publishers Weekly
