14228. Eisner, Harvey (ed). WTC: In Their Own Words. 2011. Cygnus. 278p. Soft wraps. With DVD of interviews and testimonials from survivors and firefighters. Filled with comprehensive, exclusive interviews with firefighters who responded to the World Trade Center attack, WTC: In Their Own Words, is a special collector’s edition book from Firehouse Magazine in commemoration of the 10 year anniversary of the attack and as a testimonial to the first responders. Eisner, a retired Tenafly, New Jersey fire chief and longtime editor of Firehouse Magazine, felt the calling to capture the story of 9/11 and present it through the eyes of those who responded to the call – members of the FDNY – the New York Fire Department. It’s more than photojournalism at its best – captured images from a perspective never before seen by the public. It’s a reference guide. And in years to come, it may very well be a seminal historic accounting of the immediate aftermath of the worst terrorist attack in history. For some, still active or retired firefighters, it was too difficult to tell the story. For others, it was just the first, or second time, that they’ve ever articulated the emotional pain of that fateful day, nearly 10 years ago. This softbound book takes a highly detailed, in-depth look at the day’s events and fire department response. This book also includes an exclusive DVD which includes interviews and testimonials from survivors and firefighters. Eisner felt it important to record for history the words of some of those who put their lives on the line. To present stories that have never before been publicly shared. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this volume will benefit these four organizations: FDNY Foundation, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, UFA Thomas R. Elsasser Fund, Wounded Warrior Project. A fitting tribute to responders who we should never forget. (M). $49.
