    Image-based history at its best

    Long known as a world-class aviation historian, former Milwaukee firefighter Wayne Mutza makes a second journey into the history of the profession and Department he loves. The results are again top notch. Where many authors of image-based histories fail to properly marry photos and captions, Mutza succeeds at making each element support the other to simultaneously deliver both social and technical history at its best. Whether for education, entertainment, or example, this is the book to take in hand and enjoy.
