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 1964 seizure of the American consulate staff and their 111 days of captivity. Their struggle to stay alive and dramatic rescue offer a gripping story of courage, frustration, and survival. The incident described here presents valuable lessons both for the future conduct of hostages and the policies that deal with this type of terrorism. While helping readers appreciate the intensity of the drama as it unfolded, Hoyt remains remarkably objective as he reports what happened. His description of those final moments of terror before rescue is nevertheless certain to have an impact on every reader. 275 pages including notes and index.
