The Bells Go Down: The Diary of a London A.F.S Man

£37.99

Product description

This is the intimate, human story of the life of a London A.F.S man who joined the Fire Service on the outbreak of the war, and kept a diary. It gives a vivid and moving picture of the excitements, peril and rescues which are the high-lights of life in the Fire Service during war-time. But it does more. It reveals, as only a diary can, the warm, human companionship, heroic devotion to one's fellows and patient acceptance of dull and menial duties which has consecrated the fire service into something especially noble. The loss of comrades in the Blitz and the love story of the author are told with a restrained emotion which sets the hallmark of genuine on a diary which everyone should read.

This hardback edition is in good condition. The dustjacket has some tearing.
