Among the Heroes by Jere Longman
Book DescriptionThe events of September 11 are etched in our minds, but perhaps the fate of United Airlines Flight 93 intrigues us most. As we helplessly watched two planes fly into the twin towers of the World Trade Center one after the other, an epic story of self-sacrifice was taking place. AMONG THE HEROES vividly re-creates the story of those passengers who decided to fight the armed hijackers who took control of their plane. September 11 is a tragic day to be remembered, but United 93 is its symbol of hope and courage. NEW YORK TIMES journalist Jere Longman covered the crash minute by minute. In AMONG THE HEROES he reconstructs the story of this flight, profiling the hijackers and the heroes -- Mark Bingham, Thomas Burnett, Jeremy Glick and Todd Beamer. From calls made to their loved ones, we know that these men had been informed of the attacks on the World Trade Center and that they knew they were likely to suffer a similar fate, killing thousands of innocent people in the process. Collating all available material, eyewitness interviews, phone calls and the black box, AMONG THE HEROES is a gripping account of a real life-and-death drama, a story of heroic self-sacrifice and nailbiting decisions.
