Summary
In this moment-to-moment narrative, based on groundbreaking reporting, Lynn Spencer brings the inspiring true drama of the heroic response of American pilots and controllers on the morning of 9/11 vividly to life for the first time, taking us right inside the airliner cockpits and control towers, the fighter jets and the military battle cabs. She makes vital corrections to the findings of the 9/11 Commission Report, and reveals many startling, utterly unknown elements of the story.--From publisher description
