    This book is really wonderful. It is very interesting to read and see the memorials in ways that I probably will never see in person. The book arrived on time and in great condition. I would recommend the seller and the book.

    This photographic guide is eye opening. A sobering account of what happened and a view into the places we should all hold dear in our hearts, regarding all of the memorials, and all that happened on that tragic day. Well written and well photographed. Maybe we all cannot view all of these places in person, but this book helps us to be there, in memory and remember...
