Club Book Episode 28 Mitchell Zuckoff

Mitchell Zuckoff is a veteran journalist and prolific historian. A two-decade career as a roving correspondent for The Boston Globe won him numerous accolades, including a Pulitzer Prize nomination. As an author, his recent New York Times bestsellers include two larger-than-life WWII aviation thrillers: Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II (2011), and Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II (2013). Zuckoff’s journalism background proved invaluable to his most recent – and most important – book project to date, 13 Hours. It is considered the definitive account of what happened on September 11, 2012, when terrorists in Libya attacked the U.S. State Department compound in Benghazi.
