The tragic events of September 11, 2001, forever altered the American landscape, both figuratively and literally. Immediately after the jets struck the twin towers of the World Trade Center, Dennis Smith, a former firefighter, reported to Manhattanâs Ladder Co. 16 to volunteer in the rescue efforts. In the weeks that followed, Smith was present on the front lines, attending to the wounded, sifting through the wreckage, and mourning with New Yorkâs devastated fire and police departments.
This is Smithâs vivid account of the rescue efforts by the fire and police departments and emergency medical teams as they rushed to face a disaster that would claim thousands of lives.Â Smith takes readers inside the minds and lives of the rescuers at Ground Zero as he shares stories about these heroic individuals and the effect their loss had on their families and their companies. âIt is,â says Smith, âthe real and living history of the worst day in America since Pearl Harbor.âÂ Written with drama and urgency, Report from Ground Zero honors the men and women whoâin Americaâs darkest hoursâredefined our understanding of courage.
