Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explores the role of firefighting in human history while chronicling the world's most famous fires. An innovative, vividly illustrated chronicle of humankind's struggle to subdue nature's most primal and destructive force — from Rome in 64 AD to the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 — Firefighting examines history's most formidable fires, showing how each influenced the evolution of firefighting technology, equipment, and tactics. Following today's firefighters as they prepare to meet the challenges of tomorrow's fires, no other book has explored the role of the firefighter in human society-past, present, and future quite like Firefighting.
