Report from Engine Co. 82 is the story of one company of New York firefighters battling unimaginable death and destruction every day.
Dennis Smith worked as a firefighter in the South Bronx of New York City, and the graphic detail and gripping prose of this firefighting classic drives the most important, accomplished, terrifying book ever published on firefighting. With over two million copies in print, this book struck a nerve within the nation when it was first published thirty years ago. Today it gains even greater resonance for those still trying to make sense of the deaths of so many New York firefighters on September 11 and for those inspired by the tireless work of firefighters and other rescue personnel in the aftermath of the destruction. Dennis Smith describes the bravery, heroism, camaraderie, and unflinching courage of New York's bravest, demonstrating how firefighters everywhere have become the most respected of American heroes.
This was a very good book. It makes you look back and realize what the BRAVEST have gone through. My hats off to them.
One of the best books about the real life of aNYFD Station and you cant buy it from the U.S. store? What the hell? This is the reason for the low rating. The book gets 6 stars
