Abstract:

This book is about Engine 40, Ladder 35, located on the West Side of Manhattan near Lincoln Center. On the morning of September 11, 2001, two rigs carrying thirteen men set out from this firehouse; but only one would return. Halberstam presents the day as it unfolds, from when the firefighters are called to duty to their families waiting for news. He delves into the culture of the firehouse itself, describing why gifted men serve in so dangerous a profession--and why, in so many instances, they are following in fathers and other relatives' footsteps, viewing firefighting not just as a job, but as a calling.
