    This is going to be a short review because I read this such a long time ago and don t remember a massive amount about it I read a lot of books about 9 II because I am interested in hearing from survivors about their stories and how they saw the events unfold The first part of the book did deliver on that and was interesting.This was a decent enough read but I didn t find it as gripping as some of the other books I ve looked at I did feel as if there was a lot of detail in it that wasn t neede This is going to be a short review because I read this such a long time ago and don t remember a massive amount about it I read a lot of books about 9 II because I am interested in hearing from survivors about their stories and how they saw the events unfold The first part of the book did deliver on that and was int...

    I liked this book and enjoyed the fact it shed light on what the firefighters went through on that fateful day and the subsequent days afterward Dennis Smith is a well known firefighter turned writer, and I would recommend this book of his to others However, if a person were to only read one book about 9 11 and or about the 343 firefighters that lost their lives that day, I would adamantly recommend The Last Men Out Life on the Edge at Rescue 2 Firehouse instead of this one While this book i I liked this book and enjoyed the fact it shed light on what the firefighters went through on tha...

    What a mixed bag The first half of the book was tremendous All first hand accounts of people s actions on September 11th, 2001 From Fire Chiefs to probationary firefighters to cops to Port Authority Police to spouses of first responders, you get a detailed, layers image of how things unfolded With each retelling, from slightly different perspectives, you get a three dimensional picture of many aspects of the action that day Each retelling reveals new sacrifices, new fears and new heroism T What a mixed bag The first half of the book was tremendous All first hand accounts of people s actions on September 11th, 2001 From Fire Chiefs to probationary firefighters to cops to Port Authority Police to spouses of first responders, you get a d...

    In football parlance soccer to my chums in the USA this book is a game of two halves.The first half is a collection of stories regarding those involved in this terrible event If they were done separately they would be riveting enough but the author links them It is very cleverly done as each story is intertwined and different participants describe the horrors unfolding in front of them and how this affects them and those around them I like the way it introduces individuals and then they tak In football parlance soccer to my chums in the USA this book is a game of two halves.The first half is a collection of stories regarding those involved in this terrible event If they were done separately they would be riveting enough but the author links them It is very cleverly done as each story is intertwined and different participants describe the horrors unfolding in front of them and how this affects them and those around them I like the way it introduces individuals and then they take up the baton of t...
