Overview

From the editors of TIME, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, comes an exclusive oral history of an extraordinary decade of sorrow and resilience. Accompanied by stunning black-and-white portraits by photographer Marco Grob, more than three dozen witnesses from Ground Zero to the White House to the mountains of Afghanistan give their accounts of what they saw and felt as the world changed, starting from the first moments of the attack on America through the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "I just happen to be looking towards the Statue of Liberty. What I saw was a plane coming eye-level toward me, getting larger and larger. I can see the U on the tail," recalls Stanley Praimnath, one of just four survivors from the top floors of the World Trade Center. Vice President Dick Cheney recalls the earliest minutes of the war on terror, his immediate determination to "use all of the means available." President Bush remembers climbing on the wrecked fire engine at Ground Zero with a bullhorn in his hand and surveying the faces looking at him, knowing they were uncertain he'd be the leader they needed. TIME interviewed fire fighters and soldiers, widows and orphans, a general and an antiwar activist, to weave their stories of the 9/11 decade into an epic narrative of tragedy and transcendence. The photos and stories will be featured in TIME magazine as a special report commemorating 9/11 and will be the basis of an HBO documentary to premiere at the same time.

    Recomend it for it great use of Black & White Portraits

    I received Time Magazine Commemorative issue Beyond 9/11. Not sure if it is the same one I have that is in a magazine format.

    I would like to say what most of the staff memeber in the place I work had to say about it.

    There seems to be a significant absence of black and hispanics in most of the commemorative issues for the 9/11. I brought the magazine in the work and one of the staff members said right away I hate to open it because I know there will not be any blacks in it. I said ofcourse there are. And I was fabbergasted that he was right!

    I had never noticed it but you as a large media magazine must be aware of this. Why does Time Magazine not care? There were many blacks, chinesse and Latine heroes during the 9/11 yet now that I am actually paying attention I see the total lack of them in books, commemorative anything. It is very disheartening.
