I am about 3/4 of the way through reading the book, Wall of Flame, by Erich Krauss. This is one the best action fire books I have ever read. It is awesome. This comes from a firefighter who has fought the Masked Red Devil for 50 years and has been an incident commander on the largest fire in California history (2003 San Diego Cedar Fire).
I highly recommend this book to any firefighter and, particularly, to fire command officers. The book is so intense with detail that it creates many learning points for the fire officer. I will be recommending to all current and future fire command officers that they read the book, feel the action by the firefighters and think what they would do in the same circumstances.
Thank you for the learning that I am enjoying and benefitted from this read. As I frequently tell our firefighters, take care, be safe, have fun and live the FF dream.
