Beschreibung

The Lives They Saved is the story in artifacts and oral histories of the 300,000 New Yorkers who were evacuated from Manhattan on 9/11…by boat. It is a story that has not yet been written about or told. It includes hundreds of oral histories and many photographs of this high drama, set against the terrifying backdrop of the day when the Earth stood still, every airport in the U.S. was closed down, and Manhattan was seized by gridlock.

For perspective, the boatlift that saved Britain’s expeditionary force from the beaches of Dunkirk removed approximately the same number of people: 300,000.

Rezensionen

<p><span>NetGalley Review: 5 stars</span></p> <p><span>Last updated on 13 Jul 2021</span></p> <p></p> <p><span>"</span><span>There are some books you finish and right away you write the review, with a book like this I think it takes serious processing time. </span></p> <p><span>What can I say? How do I feel or what do I even write? </span></p> <p><span>This story is absolutely gut wrenching and truthfully or shamefully one I wasn’t aware of. </span></p> <p><span>I always like to read about September 11 around this time of year and this book hit the mark for me. </span></p> <p><span>I knew about the boats the led massive people to safety but I really didn’t know about them and how many times have I ridden the Staten Island Ferry or the Seastreak? </span></p> <p><span>I think it’s so important to know as much as possible about September as to truly never forget! </span></p> <p><span>Again, I’d highly recommend this! I loved how it was written because it was easy to put down and then come back to it because with books like this sometimes you need that. </span></p> <p></p> <p><span>So many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my gifted ebook copy.</span><a></a><span>"
