Come Home Alive: There For The Taking: Peru
December 17, 1996, Lima, Peru. 500 guests are gathered for a gala reception at the Japanese Ambassador's residence to celebrate the Emperor's birthday.
Suddenly, an armed contingent of guerrillas from the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement gain control of the compound. The most important hostages, including 7 Americans, are held according to perceived importance.
As days pass, it looks like a peaceful solution may not be found--and in fact, Peru will not gain control of the embassy until April 1997!
