Four Days at the Pentagon is a riveting, first person account of the actions that took place at the Pentagon on 9/11/2001 to 9/14/2001. Dan Pantaleo, a US Marine Corps Major at the time of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, masterfully tells the story of some of the initial rescue attempts, the establishment of the victim recovery operations, and the retrieval of the USMC flag. While the actions that occurred near the World Trade Centers in New York City have been chronicled in many publications, there are very few first-hand accounts of the recovery efforts that took place at the Pentagon on 9-11 and the days thereafter. The details outlined in this book transport the reader back to September 2001, and provide insights into events the mainstream media barely touched. As our nation continues to transform in the wake of the terrorist attacks on 9-11, books like this are important toward understanding how and why America’s international engagement policy is formed. Reviews include: "Four Days at the Pentagon is a compelling read. Once you get started, you keep reading. Great style, very good read.” LtCol Kerry A. Knowles, USMC (ret) Senior Editor, Marine Corps Gazette "Four Days at the Pentagon is one of the stories of the dedication, heroism and American spirit that became commonplace that day and in the days that followed, but it encapsulates in that single story what the American spirit is all about." David G. Boyd, Ph.D. Director of Technology Transfer First Responder Group U.S. Department of Homeland Security “This book is an important piece of American history that must be told. Semper Fi and well done, Dan Pantaleo!” Colonel Daniel J. Choike, USMC Commander, Marine Corps Base, Quantico “I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about what took place on 9/11 at the Pentagon. Four Days at the Pentagon is an excellent book!” Al McMichael, Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps (1999-2003) “Dan Pantaleo describes the 9/11 aftermath in detail while maintaining the honor and dignity of those involved and deceased.” Colonel Steve MacLaird, USAF,( ret) Proceeds from the sale of this book to benefit the Wounded Warrior Regiment.
