And Then All Hell Broke Loose: Two Decades in the Middle East

Description:
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.

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 Please click here to ask a question
