In a moving tribute to the fallen heroes of September 11, 2001, a former firefighter and best-selling author of Report from Engine Co. 82 provides an eyewitness record of events on the front lines of Ground Zero and the extraordinary efforts of police, fire, and emergency medical teams to rescue victims in the face of unspeakable disaster.

Blackwell North Amer
Immediately after two hijacked jets struck the twin towers of the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, Dennis Smith, a retired firefighter who had served eighteen years with the New York City Fire Department, reported to Manhattan's Ladder Co. 16 to volunteer in the rescue effort. Among those missing in the tragedy were 343 firefighters, many of whom were his friends and longtime colleagues. Having spent his career as both a respected writer and a member of one of the city's busiest firehouses, Smith became determined to use his unique background to tell the story of the disaster and its aftermath with the empathy and understanding that only an insider could bring to it.
Report from Ground Zero is a narrative of this three-month period, a time that has permanently altered the landscape and character of America.
