More About And Then All Hell Broke Loose by Richard Engel
 
 
 
Overview
A major New York Times bestseller by NBC's Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel--this riveting story of the Middle East revolutions, the Arab Spring, war, and terrorism seen close up "should be required reading" (Booklist, starred review).

In 1997, young Richard Engel, working freelance for Arab news sources, got a call that a busload of Italian tourists was massacred at a Cairo museum. This is his first view of the carnage these years would pile on. Over two decades he has been under fire, blown out of hotel beds, and taken hostage. He has watched Mubarak and Morsi in Egypt arrested and condemned, reported from Jerusalem, been through the Lebanese war, covered the shooting match in Iraq and the Libyan rebels who toppled Gaddafi, reported from Syria as Al-Qaeda stepped in, and was kidnapped in the Syrian cross currents of fighting. Engel takes the reader into Afghanistan with the Taliban and to Iraq with ISIS. In the page-turning And Then All Hell Broke Loose, he shares his "quick-paced...thrilling adventure story" (Associated Press).

Engel takes chances, though not reckless ones, keeps a level head and a sense of humor, as well as a grasp of history in the making. Reporting as NBC's Chief-Foreign Correspondent, he reveals his unparalleled access to the major figures, the gritty soldiers, and the helpless victims in the Middle East during this watershed time. His vivid story is "a nerve-racking...and informative portrait of a troubled region" (Kansas City Star) that shows the splintering of the nation states previously cobbled together by the victors of World War I. "Engel's harrowing adventures make for gripping reading" (The New York Times) and his unforgettable view of the suffering and despair of the local populations offers a succinct and authoritative account of our ever-changing world.
