"That morning [9/11] began one of the largest mobilizations by The Times since World War II," writes Howell Raines, the paper's executive editor. The photographic fruits of that superb effort are on display here: unforgettable color images of the Twin Towers in flames, a body in midair, streets clouded with smoke and ash. And there is much more: diagrams detailing how the towers collapsed and the anatomy of an al-Qaeda underground bunker; and original essays by N.R. Kleinfeld, John F. Burns and other Times reporters.
