About the Book

This book contains the text of Charles Stuart Kennedy’s interviews with Anne Dammarell about her life, family, and experience in the Foreign Service, including her survival of the first suicide attack on an American embassy. On April 18, 1983 a truck loaded with two thousand pounds of military grade explosives drove into the front door of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing sixty-three people, seventeen of whom were Americans. The nascent Iranian-backed Hezbollah had begun its terrorist campaign against the U.S. Anne Dammarell later wrote about the bombing for a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University.
