About this deal

Thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish, the structure was brilliant, the narrative was honest, hard hitting but completely admirable. New Cross’s crews were instructed to make a forced entry into the fourth floor and get a hose line to work from the fire escape.

Then, turning back the BA team, he listened intently to their report before saying: “Well done lads.A book that has so much potential but that in fact should probably be in the fiction section due to an author who is completely obsessed with portraying himself as the hero and victim in a story of his life that really shows him as out of control and a maverick.

I’ve seen there are some criticism around how the author describes Grenfell and his experiences of it, I can understand their concern regarding the timing of the book, however, I think the way he describes his feelings and what he has seen is true to him. Starting his career as a fire-cadet at sixteen the author rose to senior rank, always in an operational role. And please, don't start complaining "Ooooh he only went in AFTER the most things were done at Grenfell and did he even do something in there? Someone had left it on a walk way in our hotel and I walked past it for 3 days, continually saying "if that books still there I'll take it.

As Dave opened the nozzle we were engulfed in steam as the water cooled the superheated atmosphere above us. I understand what you mean,” said the German, “but there are none, this is why they are bringing water for the pumpers. It was from these basement entrances that two ominous clouds of black smoke rose into the clear blue sky. I never understand authors reading their own books cause they aren’t voice actors and you need that to read even a non fiction book.

Some of these remain all-too-familiar, such as the King's Cross fire of 1987 which claimed the lives of 31 people; others, no less terrible, have faded into distant memory. The incredible selection of images grabs your attention from the start, and David Pike's careful editing has provided a wealth of tales from London's fremen and some from his own pen. For example, during his career Stephen played his part in the response to such major incidents as the 1996 Docklands bombing by the IRA at South Quay on the Isle Of Dogs and the Buncefield fire – the biggest incident of its kind in peacetime Europe – when an oil storage facility exploded in 2005.It changed me at school too – I started using that banter at school and the other kids probably thought I was a bit of a live wire. Running through the book is a series of gripping historical narratives subtitled ‘Yesteryear’s Fires’, depicting the heroic professionalism of firefighters confronted by truly harrowing disasters. Firefighters don't get as much recognition as they should, and this book highlights that they are the unsung heroes of our emergency services. Joining the London Fire Brigade as a cadet at the tender age of sixteen, David Pike was destined to become very much an operational firefighter.
