On September 11 2001 the world stopped.

An attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center in New York on a serene September morning changed the course of world history.

What a powerful book about the twelve members of the PAPD and what they endured at Ground Zero and the lack of respect and recognition they received in the years after.

It ends tragically for some including the author and his family and all the men struggle with ill health from all the toxic substances they breathed.

A short yet fascinating insight into the aftermath of the terrorist attack.

Thank you for your devoted service!

Appreciated the cantor and honest sharing of serving over nine months in hell. After serving only 10 days, Sept 14 - 23, 2001, I appreciated the perspectives of Team Romeo, and their continuing battles as a result of their service. Thank you!

Thank you Netgalley, Tony Zeoli and Endeavour for this digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not a huge fan of 9/11 books. Many of them seem to cash in on tragedy and be told by people with no experience of what happened that day or even the aftermath.

For a book that deals with one of the most horrific terrorist attacks documented in history, this was incredibly uplifting. The true story of how Tony Zeoli formed a team with other retired Policemen who proceeded to give up their own time for nine months to assist daily with the rescue and recovery of victims claimed on 9/11. How they faced the gates of hell and saw horrors no man should ever have to see as they combed the 16 acre site for human remains so that families could lay their brothers ...more

Unsung Heroes

I had no idea who actually sifted through the enormous wreckage at Ground Zero, and to find they're unpaid volunteers who continue to have problems from the tremendous task fills me with both pride and sorrow. What we as a nation endured as the horrors of that day unfolded are indelibly etched in our minds forever.
I just wanted to say my thanks and eternal gratitude for those selfless workers. May their bodies heal, their minds rest, and their place in history b not forgotten. A de

Hats off to Recovery Team Romeo, a group of NYPD retired officers, who volunteered their time in the recovery efforts of 9/11 victims.
