Description


"This is on-the-scene reporting at its best. Bill Patrick has written a suspenseful account of the heroic, often tragic working lives of the firemen of the city of Troy, their comradeship, and their concern for the suffering of the victims. It is as fast-paced as a fire engine racing to put out the flames. Altogether superb." -- Richard Selzer, from the Foreword.
