Anotace:

The creation of the Pentagon in seventeen whirlwind months during World War II is one of the great construction feats in American history, involving a tremendous mobilization of manpower, resources, and minds, creating an institution that ranks with a handful of other structures as symbols recognized around the world. In July 1941, the Army construction chief sprang the idea of building a single, huge headquarters that could house the entire War Department, then scattered in seventeen buildings around Washington. The Pentagon's post-World War II history is told through its critical moments, including the troubled birth of the Department of Defense during the Cold War, the tense days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the tumultuous 1967 protest against the Vietnam War. The attack of September 11 is related with new details, as is the race to rebuild the damaged Pentagon, a restoration that echoed the spirit of its creation.--From publisher description.
