Provides a first-person account of the 1964 seizure of the American consulate staff and their 111 days of captivity at the hands of Congolese rebels. Hoyt, who served in the US Foreign Service for 25 years, chronicles the hostages' day-by-day ordeal as rebels held them in confinement at the central prison in Stanleyville and elsewhere, including a women's toilet in an airport terminal.
