Thirteen Hours is a personal account, never before told, of what really happened during the 13-hour long terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound and CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. This politically-charged book describes how true heroes went beyond the call of duty during the attack, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

Zuckoff is a prolific author and current journalism professor at Boston University. Prior to teaching, he spent two decades as an investigative reporter and roving national correspondent. Much of Zuckoff’s work as a journalist was done for The Boston Globe. Since writing Thirteen Hours, Zuckoff has become a popular speaker who makes appearances across the country.
