    BEIRUT RULES is thoroughly fascinating, absorbing, and terrifying story, all mixed into a great book. Even though I lived through these years as a young adult, I was stunned at how little I knew about the events described here. The terror that these agents lived with and the staggering...

    ?The Near East Division never formed a task force to retrieve Bill.? This is the story of the kidnapping of William Buckley, the CIA station chief in Beirut, Lebanon. It was the beginning of the USA?s war on terror that continues to this day, with no end in sight. I received an ...

    Burton and Katz in an earlier book, Under Fire, detailed the 2015 terrorist attack on an American Embassy facility in Benghazi, (see my review). That event resulted in the death of the American ambassador and three other security employees. Here, they address the terrorist crimes of th...

    I received this book as an advanced copy from the publisher based on my reviews of Burton's previous books. As a disclaimer, I should mention that I am personally acquainted with Fred Burton, as we went to school together and grew up in the same town. We still run into each other occas...

    Interesting read. I found the redactions to be annoying. Not sure the purpose of including text in the book that then is redacted - just rewrite those portions excluding the redacted text. Perhaps the redactions were included to make it seem more like a "classified" or "spy" type book....

    Fascinating book told from the perspective of someone who was there (see Fred Burton?s CV...) I remember many of the events detailed and knew both the Buckley and Higgins stories...being able to get the behind the scenes story with little political spin . The authors make a strong ca...

    Great book. Well written. Tells the stories of the terror activities during the 70's 80's and 90's with a lot the intricacies of the players laid out, but without a lot of the confusion of factions, of which there are many. It is well laid out and easy to follow. Not a particularly hap...

    Outstanding book that tells of the chaos that was Beirut in the 1980s. ...

    Excellent telling of not only the kidnapping and death of William Buckley, but of some of the genesis of unrest and terror in the Middle East. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. ...

    Impressive! A Must read for those interested in fight against Terrorism. ...

    Interesting read. I found the redactions to be annoying. Not sure the purpose of including text in the book that then is redacted - just rewrite those portions excluding the redacted text. Perhaps the redactions were included to make it seem more like a "classified" or "spy" type book....

    Fascinating book told from the perspective of someone who was there (see Fred Burton?s CV...) I remember many of the events detailed and knew both the Buckley and Higgins stories...being able to get the behind the scenes story with little political spin . The authors make a strong ca...

    Great book. Well written. Tells the stories of the terror activities during the 70's 80's and 90's with a lot the intricacies of the players laid out, but without a lot of the confusion of factions, of which there are many. It is well laid out and easy to follow. Not a particularly hap...

    Outstanding book that tells of the chaos that was Beirut in the 1980s. ...

    Excellent telling of not only the kidnapping and death of William Buckley, but of some of the genesis of unrest and terror in the Middle East. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. ...

    Impressive! A Must read for those interested in fight against Terrorism. ...
