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.

    " Dennis Smith is probably the foremost fire book author ever and opened up a whole genre. Doesn't hurt that he covers the most turbulent period any fire department has ever faced and the elite of all fire departments...FDNY. Great read! "

    " This book is one of my favorite books, and does such a fantastic job of getting the reader to see the reality of what life was like in the South Bronx during the 60's and 70's. It is a book that can be read and re-read over and over. "
