When the oil-rich Kingdom of Libya descended into corruption and irresolution, a young Libyan army officer named Muammar Gaddafi seized power in a coup on September 1, 1969. Under his rule Libya became a pariah state, harboring terrorists from nearly every dissident group in the world and accumulating an enormous arsenal of lethal weaponry. The late Gaddafi was autocratic and cruel, and his people finally rose up against him in February 2011—but how did he survive for so long? This history is a story of Roman legions, Barbary pirates, slave traders, camel caravans, and Ottoman Beys- of Italian colonists, Bedouin tribes, Texan oil barons, the Lockerbie disaster, and mass murder in the Abu Salim jail.

Most poignantly, it is the story of the human cost of freeing Libya from Gaddafi.
