9/12: The Epic Battle of the Ground Zero Responders (Paperback)
Told by Groner and journalist Tom Teicholz, 9/12 is the story of the brave public servants who showed up when their country needed them most, of their fight for redress, and of their victory in the face of the seemingly insurmountable.
Tom Teicholz is an award-winning journalist, contributor to Forbes.com, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and Los Angeles Magazine. His books include Ivan of the Extermination Camp, among others.
“Many citizens believe the tragedy of 9/11 ended with the attacks themselves. But the two coauthors tell the full story—of the courage and determination of first responders and their numerous allies over the next decade. This is required reading for all Americans interested in the aftermath and legacy of 9/11.”—Kenneth R. Feinberg, special master of the federal 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund of 2001
"Groner and Teicholz write with both clarity and compassion about both the human struggle and the legal struggle. The reward for the reader, no less than for the first responders, is the opportunity to see justice done at long last and against long odds."—Jonathan Kirsch, Jewish Journal
"With the battle over federal health care compensation for 9/11 first responders underway once again, this behind-the-scenes chronicle about earlier struggles provides important information along with profiles in courage and self-sacrifice as readers meet those who gave their all to serve community and country."—Karen Springen, Booklist
