Fire Department City of New York: The Bravest; An Illustrated History 1865-2002 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Many titles have been written since 9/11 on New York and the NYC Fire Department. None,however, contain more information about the dedication, courage, and history of this organization than FDNY- The Bravest. This book comprehensively explores the selfless dedication of these men and woman who have served New York City for over 100 years.
I¿ve read many books on the FDNY and was left a little disappointed. This book was written by a FDNY Firefighter and the editor of WNYF (with New York Firefighters)a FDNY training publication. All you ever wanted to know about the FDNY is here including some great pictures too. And part of the book sales go to fire safety education.
