Among the Heroes: United Flight 93 & the Passengers and Crew Who Fought Back
Jere Longman

Among the Heroes: United Flight 93 & the Passengers and Crew Who Fought Back is the moving account of the extraordinary passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93, which was the fourth plane hijacked on September 11, 2001. New York Times reporter Jere Longman details the remarkable lives of the passengers and crew of United Flight 93, set against the backdrop of the terrible events that unfolded during the airplane’s hijacking. Many of the passengers phoned their families after the hijacking occurred and learned of the other hijackings, which had used commercial airplanes as suicide missions to attack the World Trade Center. This is the story of the heroic efforts of these passengers and crew to fight back against the terrorists, ultimately saving perhaps hundreds or thousands of lives. You will weep but also cheer with the heroes of United Flight 93 who inspired a nation with their courage.
