Format: Hardcover
As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches it is important and appropriate to reflect on those shocking and tragic events. They were transformative on many levels, and have been seared deep in the memories of those who witnessed them. For the better or worse, they have brought a major change in the US foreign policy. In subsequent years political debates over the exact nature and effects of those policies have managed to take away much of the spotlight away from 9/11 proper. It would be desirable to for at least some time put aside politics and solemnly reflect on tragedy that happened a decade ago. LIFE's "One Nation - 10 Years Later" is a poignant and gripping reminder of the events of 9/11 and their immediate aftermath.

Most of the photographs and stories deal with the collapse of the Twin Towers, but that's to be expected. While they stood erect they were a proud and majestic symbol, and this was precisely why they were chosen as a target. Their iconic symbolism has been retained for all of these years. Nonetheless, I wish there had been more information and pictures of the attack on Pentagon and the downing of the flight 93.

One of this book's biggest virtues is the photojournalistic depiction of the events. You get to relive those minutes and hours as if they were enfolding in front of your very eyes. For me the most engrossing set of photographs were the collection of still images that captured the impact of the plane on the second tower. The images feel like a nightmare that is painfully slowly enfolding in front of you.

The book also contains several reflections by some very notable writers from around the World. The contributors in this category include James Bradley, Andrei Codrescu, David M.

The pictures capture the whole story. The narrative tells the story as it happened. Both pictures and narrative are excellent. Those who remember will want to get a copy.

We are born New Yorkers having lived there almost 64 years before coming to Indiana. Fortunately, my husband was in New Jersey at the time of the tragedy but we had many friends and relatives who worked blocks away from the Towers. The survival stories are faith inducing and the bravery of ALL is beyond belief. People who stopped their journey down the stairwells to help those in distress were amazing and truly heroic. We will re-read this book many times, not just on 9/11.

This is a book that I put out at the 911 anniversary every year on my coffee table to remind people of this tragic event. It is very well done.
