The Only Plane In The Sky: An Oral History of 9/11

2121831eb5406ebf28f7b981a44c20ba

This is a powerful telling of America’s story on the day of the deadly attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Western Pennsylvania,  as told through the words of those who experienced it first-hand.  Any young American who wants to know about that day and any American who experienced it should read this book to remember what none of us should ever forget.  Graff has done an extraordinary service in giving voice to the 3,000 people who died on that bright blue day when evil struck our country.  And don’t feel awkward if it brings tears to your eyes: it did to mine.
