5.0 étoiles sur 5 Colorful Guide to Fire Equipment Around the World! 30 août 2013
Par Mike O'Connor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Few things are more attention-getting than a fire engine roaring down a street, its lights flashing and horn blaring. In THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FIRE ENGINES & FIREFIGHTING, professional Brit firefighter Neil Wallington offers up a wide-ranging, well-illustrated guide to fires and firefighting.

Wallington's book tops off at 256 pages. The first half of the book is given over to a general history of fires and firefighting. The book details the first firefighters and fire companies, the development of fire engines and other firefighting equipment, firefighting circa the 22nd Century, etc. The second half presents an A-to-Z directory of fire engine manufacturers. It's interesting to see the many and varied engines designed over the years by companies like Ahrens-Fox, Austin, Bedford, Citroen, Dodge, Grumman, Hahn, Kenworth, Mitsubishi, Saxon Sanbec and Ziegler.

While I enjoyed Wallington's book, I wish the publisher, Lorenz Books, had gone with an 8 1/2 x 11 format to allow for bigger print and larger photographs.

In any case, THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FIRE ENGINES & FIREFIGHTING is a nicely-illustrated guide to the world of firefighting through the ages and across the miles. Recommended.

This book rocks! My Father is a Chicago Fire fan. I had to get him this book for his birthday. This year, he is spending his birthday in the hospital recovering from heart surgery. He was happy as a lark when he opened this gift! Thank you Mr. Wallington for writing this book & making my father's day! :)
