Two employees of EDS, a corporation of Ross Perot, were imprisoned in Iran in 1979. Follett describes in tense detail how a team was assembled to resuce them. Many times a plan had to be changed, for example, the plan to remove the men from the prison exercise yard. Because the Revolution had begun, the men were moved to a more secure prison, which caused the team to make a new plan. The last third of the book was the best part.

This is the real-life story of a Green Beret colonel, who came out of retirement to lead a secret raid, the computer executives, shaped into a crack commando team and the Texas industrialist, who would not abandon two Americans in an Iranian jail. After a hairbreadth escape, there is a desperate race for safety. Today the team is back home living normal lives. But for a while, they lived a legend.
