What people are saying:

The Pentagon is the largest office building in the world by office space. It is the main headquarters of the US Department of Defense and a potent symbol of US military might. The Pentagon was built during the WWII era and became the main target of Russian nuclear attacks during the Cold War. I love the story about the cafe at the complex's center which was the bulls eye. The only real attack the Pentagon ever suffered was on 9/11 when terrorists flew a plane into its flank.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, the part of the US government charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions concerned directly with national security and the United States Armed Forces. The Pentagon is located on the banks of the Potomac River in Arlington, Virginia. Dedicated in 1943, it is the world's largest office building. A well-known misconception held the most sensitive materials were housed in the building's central courtyard, resulting in this location being a prime target during the Cold War should hostilities have erupted between the United States and the Soviet Union.
