"Striking fold-outs chronicle in parallel the four simultaneous stories of the doomed flights, and the twelve chapters provide plenty of details and analysis on the history, politics, economics, procedural issues, and recommendations for the future. The excellent color artwork gives a realistic face to all players: presidents, victims, rescuers, and hijackers alike." --Library Journal

This volume is organized into 12 chapters. The first chapter, "We have some planes" provides the timeline of the attack that tragic morning of 9/11. The second chapter explains the foundation of the new terrorism. The evolving of countering terrorism is covered in chapter three. The intial responses to Al Quaeda's initial assaults is reviewed in chapter four. Chapter five explains the way Al Qaeda focused their attack on the American homeland. From threat to threat is discussed in chapter six. Chapter seven illustrates the players as the 9/11 attack looms. The system was blinking red in chapter eight, this section provides the lead up to the 9/11 attack, which was the attack on the USS Cole and other targets. Chapter nine details the many acts of heroism and horror on the day we were attacked (9/11). Chapter ten deals with our government and President Bush declaring war on terrorism. Chapter eleven looks at the past mistakes and attempts to correct them. The final chapter (What to do? Global strategy) provides some suggestions on how to deal with terrorism in the future.
In conclusion, if you are seeking a clear, easy to read and understand evaluation of the events of 9/11 you may want to check out this volume. I highly recommend this book which I think all Americans should read.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Season of the Warrior: A poetic Tribute to Warriors)
Not only does this graphic depiction tell the story, it is historically factual. It sets out all the findings, history, conjectures, failures and recommendations of the Commission.
We find out in exact detail the timing, training and execution of the terrorists in accomplishing their terrorist acts.
We look inside the four flights and simultaneously see what each one was doing all at the same time. Using the magic of graphics we follow all these flights at once.
Jacobson and Colon tell of the attacks in graphic clarity. They also show the history as outlined in the 9/11 Report leading to the United States not organizing properly to avoid the greatest attack of the United States on 9/11/2001.
This report goes into great detail of what mistakes our Security Agencies made. The lack of cooperation between Agencies led to petty complaints and jealousies. A lack of a unified Security Command led to this atrocity.
In this report, we see the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission and also a report card given on 12/5/2005 in which the Commission was still giving low grades. Read it and be scared. We still have to get our act together.
Great insight. I highly recommend this graphic report.
