The 15:17 to Paris: In the Face of Fear Ordinary People Can Do the Extraordinary.

Sadler, Anthony et al.

Picture of The 15:17 to Paris: In the Face of Fear Ordinary People Can Do the Extraordinary.
The story of the three young American backpackers who bravely took on an ISIS terrorist who planned to blow up the Brussels-Paris train, has been made into a movie directed by Clint Eastwood. This riveting account of the foiled plan is also the story of three life-long friends who ran towards danger instead of from it. Lovely.

Description

On 21 August 2015, Ayoub al-Khazzani boarded a train in Brussels bound for Paris. Khazzani's mission was clear- he had an AK-47, a pistol, a box cutter, and enough ammunition to obliterate the 554 passengers on the crowded train. But as he began to execute his plan, he encountered an unstoppable line of defence- three American friends. The 15-17 to Paris is a gripping account of the foiled attack by the three men who lived it - Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone. It is also the story of what compelled three lifelong friends to run towards danger instead of from it - towards humanity, not away from terror.
