520    "From a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who reported on 
       the events as it happened, an action-packed account of 
       Reagan's failures in the 1983 Marines barracks bombing in 
       Beirut. On October 23, 1983, a truck bomb destroyed the 
       U.S. Marines barracks in Beirut. 241 Americans were killed
       in the worst terrorist attack our nation would suffer 
       until 9/11. We're still feeling the repercussions today. 
       When Reagan Sent In the Marines tells why the Marines were
       there, how their mission became confused and compromised, 
       and how President Ronald Reagan used another misguided 
       military venture to distract America from the attack and 
       his many mistakes leading up to it. Pulitzer Prize-winning
       author Patrick J. Sloyan uses his own contemporaneous 
       reporting, his close relationships with the Marines in 
       Beirut, recently declassified documents, and interviews 
       with key players, including Reagan's top advisers, to 
       shine a new light on the Israeli invasion of Lebanon and 
       Reagan's doomed ceasefire in Beirut. Sloyan draws on 
       interviews with key players to explore the actions of 
       Kissinger and Haig, while revealing the courage of Marine 
       Colonel Timothy Geraghty, who foresaw the disaster in 
       Beirut, but whom Reagan would later blame for it. More 
       than thirty-five years later, America continues to wrestle
       with Lebanon, the Marines with the legacy of the Beirut 
       bombing, and all of us with the threat of Mideast terror 
       that the attack furthered. When Reagan Sent In The Marines
       is about a historical moment, but one that remains all too
       present today"--|cProvided by publisher.
