Editorial Reviews

Review

"Journalist Kerry Sheridan recounts with startling immediacy the events following the 9/11 terrorist attacks as they affected the Fire Department of New York's pipe and drum band. [Her] terse phrasing reflects her profession, and her own Irish background betrays a deep affection for the plight of those she is privileged to interview. The raw emotions and suspense fully involve the reader in this harrowing tale. Recommended for all libraries." - Library Journal"

This is a great book. A little history on bagpipes, a little history on the FDNY Emerald Society and a front row seat into the post 9-11 world of the FDNY. Having read dozens of books on the topic, Bagpipe Brothers takes me places I haven't seen before. This is a book that will probably pull out in a couple of years to remind what happened to our Country when we were attacked by islamic terrorists.

Don't let the 9-11 mosque be built. Fight. Fight. Fight!

As a member of the fire service community, I have read several books describing the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center twin towers, and the resulting death of 343 FDNY firefighters and thousands of civilians. This book, "Bagpipe Brothers",is certainly one of the most poignant as the author describes what the FDNY bagpipe band members went through during that fateful day,and the year following this immense tragedy. For the members of this great organization, they were doing one of three things : playing at funerals for their fallen brothers, digging in "the pile", or performing their regular tours in the city's firehouses. I find this book to be a " must read " for any member or freind of the fire service.
