Defense Studies Series. By Alfred Goldberg, et al. Pentagon 9/11 Contains the most comprehensive account to date of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and the aftermath, including unprecedented details on the impact on the Pentagon building and personnel and the scope of the rescue, recovery, and caregiving effort. Evocative narrative is based on firsthand accounts of survival, tragedy, and heroism drawn from hundreds of interviews, with 32 pages of previously unpublished photographs, diagrams and illustrations.

Pentagon 9/11 records in compelling and unprecedented detail the destructive path of American Airlines Flight 77 as it crashed through the building. It then relates first-hand accounts of the epic struggle of the on-scene survivors and rescuers as they led colleagues to safety, as well as describing the actions of the first responders in fighting the fire, ensuring security, and furnishing care to the dying and injured.

From the smoke and chaos of the event emerged vivid scenes of the physical wreckage and human toll, but also countless acts of courage, grace, and heroism among military and civilians suddenly functioning side by side in an unconventional theater of war. Pentagon 9/11 chronicles the full sweep of this complex experience, heretofore depicted only in fragments, and offers important and reassuring lessons learned for future emergencies.
