Description

Stephen J. Lofgren, General Editor. Two days after the September 11, 2001 attack, the U.S. Army Center of Military History began an extensive project to document the historic event through oral history interviews. The accounts presented in this anthology are excerpts from the interviews and written recollections. Due to considerations of space, only some of the accounts at the Center could be included. This volume, therefore, does not offer every story or even, in most cases, complete stories. Then Came the Fire is a mosaic of individual accounts and impressions, arranged in an approximately chronological order, that reflects the reality of 11 September as understood and remembered by the people who experienced it.
