Turner served as Director of Central Intelligence under Jimmy Carter, who along with Turner was a 1947 Navy grad. Hudner's career as a naval officer included an attempted rescue action during the Korean War for which he received a Medal of Honor.

Synopsis: In a time of fear, outrage, and frustration about global terrorist activity, this book takes on a new urgency. Using as a framework his own dramatic experience during the Iran hostage crisis, the former director of the CIA explores the contradiction between declared policy and actual measures taken in the battle against terrorism.
From Publishers Weekly:
The former director of the CIA (1977-1981) takes a look at presidential responses to terrorism, especially Jimmy Carter's handling of the 1979-1980 Iran hostage crisis. The widespread belief that America does not make deals for hostages is shown to be false, as Turner recounts the experiences of five previous chief executives (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon) who confronted hostage crises. The author offers an insider's view of the Carter administration's 444-day duel with the Khomeini regime, including a fresh take on top-level discussions during the crisis, and provides a handy assessment of options available for dealing with terrorists. The book reveals how unprepared the U.S. is to meet this burgeoning threat, especially two untested situations: widespread terrorism at home and nuclear terrorism. Turner stresses the importance of international cooperation, especially with the Soviets, against all forms of terrorism.
