Product Description

Fire and Water: The London Firefighters’ Blitz 1940-42 Remembered is an anthology of 23 separate contributions written and illustrated by London firefighters during the Blitz of the Second World War. The book forms a unique record of one of the most fiery and dramatic periods in British history.

The contributors were members of the 23,000-strong London Auxiliary Fire Service, a reserve firefighting force constituted under the Air Raid Precautions Act of 1937. The sights, noise and even smells of the Blitz come alive in this fascinating book, as firefighters recall some of the most memorable nights in recent British history.

The book includes original drawings as illustrations provided by Paul Dessau, Leonard Rosoman and Stanley Froude.
