Remembering September 11, 2001

What We Know Now

Series: Issues in Focus Today

By Mara Miller

On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked four U.S. airliners: two destroyed the Twin Towers in New York City, one damaged the Pentagon, and one crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. This book traces the events of that day, gives the historical background, and outlines the steps taken in response so that readers will gain an understanding of the horrific attacks and their consequences.
