Product Description

The fact that London was not burnt to the ground in the Second World War is a direct tribute to the Fire Service of the time. In 1940, incendiaries and highly explosive bombs rained down on London for 57 consecutive nights. Firemen at War is the story of that time and of the men and women who worked through some of the fieriest and most dramatic nights of Britain’s history.

This splendid account of the adventures, courage and humour, problems and achievements of the wartime firefighters as they struggled to save lives, property and historic landmarks, makes absorbing reading. It is amplified by the personal recollections of men and women who were there.
