FINALIST FOR THE PULITZER PRIZE For most living Americans, September 11, 2001, is the darkest date in the nationa€™s history. But what exactly happened on 9/11? Could it have been prevented? And what remains unresolved? Here is the first panoramic, authoritative account of that tragic daya€”from the first brutal actions of the hijackers to our governmenta€™s flawed response; from the untruths told afterward by U.S. officials to the a€œelephant in the rooma€ of the 9/11 Commissiona€™s reporta€”the clues that point to foreign involvement. New York Times bestselling authors Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan write with access to thousands of recently released official documents, raw transcripts, fresh interviews, and the perspective that can come only from a decade of research and evaluation. Riveting, revelatory, and thoroughly sourced, The Eleventh Day is updated for this editiona€”with new reporting on a development that the former cochairman of Congressa€™s 9/11 probe calls the most important in years.
