"Over the last eighteen years, much has been written and said about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the profound impact they had on America and the world. But those names, stories, and memories have never before been collected in one place to tell the full, 360-degree story of what happened that day, and in the days after."… (més)

If journalism is the first rough draft of history, this effort twenty years after straddles the two. The focus is on the what and not the why, and any interpretation or context is the immediate and preliminary, as expressed at the time. Two decades begins to sound like history, but this book is mostly about the event itself as it unfolded and the events on the ground as they were lived. Passing the 20th anniversary of America’s worst terrorist attack, a whole generation has grown up unaware of the details of that grim day. And for those who lived through it, it remains an unforgettable “where were you then” moment in lives which for most contain only a handful of such moments.

Garrett Graff has amassed a monumental collection of first person accounts, descriptions, and memories, as well as contemporaneous news reporting and commentary to tell the story of 9/11. We revisit that day through those who escaped the World Trade Center or survived the Pentagon attack, those on the phone with loved ones on the fourth plane, first responders, many of whom lost family and coworkers, and political and news figures. These accounts are organized into readable chapters, each telling a story chronologically beginning in the the early morning, and topically, as the day unfolded in multiple places and in multiple ways. The political reactions and responses are part of the narrative. Witness the title, which refers to the grounded US air fleet, and the one plane still airborne: that of President George W. Bush on his way back to Washington.

Do you want to read a comprehensive narrative of the 9/11attacks? I can only say that I did want to be reminded. I will never forget both the confusion and horror for me personally that day, and the aftermath in NYC in the days following, as a feeling of shared trauma and intimate connection united everyone for a brief moment. It was a singular experience, and I recall a feeling of privilege to bear witness personally to the tragedy through the experience of New Yorkers. The details of that day are not pretty, although many are heroic. And forgetting isn’t my preferred style. I prefer remembering, acknowledging, being aware, and accepting where possible. An important piece of my life is more strongly anchored and won’t blow away. ( )

5764. The Only Plane in the Sky An Oral History of 9/11, by Garrett M. Graff (read 21 Nov 2021) This book, published in large print in 2019, is made up of words said by others than the author, and tells what numerous persons said of their experiences on 11 Sept 2001, when the four hijacked planes were crashed into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. The oral statements are revealing and often of much interest. Nearly all the statements were made on Sept 11 and persons quoted range from government figures down to ordinary citizens. The large print book (the first Large Print book identified as such I have ever read) goes on and on for many pages and thus there is much repetition and eventually one palls reading some of the entries.

It is the month before the 20th year observance of 9/11. Author Garrett Graff begins the narration by explaining that nearly anyone who was alive at the time is eager to share their personal memories of that day. I definitely identified.

I listened to the oral history which included survivors, family members, White House and Congressional leaders, journalists and neighbors in New York, Arlington and Pennsylvania. It provided me with more insight into the day and the personal stories.

This was an important book. It was difficult. I will never forget the day and I will never forget this book. ( )

I make a point of reading a book about 9/11 every September. Of all those that I have read, this one was the hardest to get through. A book that should have taken only a few days, took me nearly 2 1/2 weeks to finish.

The book follows the entire day. The structure of the book is set up as a type of diary, with entries from the people who lived it. The impact of the voices of those who were there struck me and knocked me back into that day, each time I picked it up.

Why 4 stars, not 5? This is book is not for everyone. It is descriptive and horrifying. I cannot imagine listening to the audio version, which I understand is voiced by the 45 different people, those that lived it.
