Summary, etc.:
In the past 15 years we have seen the Towers fall again and again in a series of powerful documentaries and TV shows. Movies have expertly rendered the courage of first responders and the passenger takeover on United Flight 93. But in the smoke of 9/11, one story still remains largely overlooked: the attack on the Pentagon...On September 11th, 184 people lost their lives at the Pentagon. Today many people are surprised to hear that the Pentagon was ever a target, let alone the loss of life that occurred there. And even fewer know about those who escaped and how many people were terrifyingly close to the impact zone...On the 15th anniversary of the attack, survivors ́ many for the first time ́ tell their stories. There are harrowing accounts of crawling blindly through dark, smoky corridors, leaping from windows to escape, reentering the inferno to find colleagues, carrying the wounded to safety and tending to gravely burned, unrecognizable co-workers despite the dangerous conditions that surrounded them.
