Summary
"Taken hostage by Congolese rebels at the U.S. consulate he headed in Stanleyville, Michael Hoyt provides the first inside account of the 1964 seizure of the American consulate staff and their 111 days of captivity. Their struggle to stay alive and their dramatic rescue offer a gripping story of courage, frustration, and survival. The first time that Americans had been held hostage since the Barbary pirate days of the 1800s, the incident described here presents valuable lessons both for the future conduct of hostages and the policies that deal with this type of terrorism."--Jacket
