Monrovia, Liberia. September 20, 1998: with the city in anarchic chaos, Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) Special Agents brave the deadly streets to rescue pinned-down American journalists.
DSS Special Agents Tony Diebler, Scott Folensbee and Steve Fakan have completed their mission. All American diplomats and civilians under their purview are accounted for and safe within the walls of the US Embassy. After days navigating the deadly streets of Monrovia, Liberia's rebel-torn capital, they are battle-scarred and exhausted.
Then word arrives of a group of journalists trapped in a nearby hotel, and the agents don't hesitate for a moment. Hesitation would mean certain death for the reporters. As they once again duck bullets and hand grenades in the raging streets, HEROES UNDER FIRE thrillingly recounts their selfless act.
