Product Description

Arson Around is an anecdotal biography chronicling the challenging life of a rookie fireman in the old West Ham County Fire Brigade in the early 60s up to and including the amalgamation with the London Fire Brigade in 1965.

This lively account of the fires and disasters of his time in the brigade are laugh-out-loud funny, sad, heartwarming, and told with the utmost respect for other firefighters in the profession. Providing the reader with an inspirational insight into the teamwork, respect, leadership, and strength, the book frankly demonstrates the skills needed to be a successful fireperson. With high drama and hilarious anecdotes, the story of the camaraderie of O’Halloran and his colleagues makes for a compelling read.
