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.
