Summary
An account of the 444-day Iran hostage crisis describes how a mob of students, inspired by a then-virtually unknown Khomeini, seized the American embassy in 1979, in a chronicle that documents the contributions of such figures as Jimmy Carter and the Shah, and the doomed Desert One rescue mission
