The New York Times bestseller by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author David Halberstam is an intimate portrait of Engine 40 Ladder 35 on the Upper West Side of New York City, which lost twelve men in the World Trade Center attack. In the tradition of John Hersey's HIROSHIMA...

Halberstam tells a story that is about the individuals themselves as well as the effect this cataclysmic event has had on the victim's families, their surviving colleagues, and their community. David Halberstam has spent a lifetime defining the events that have shaped the modern age of our nation, both politically and psychologically.

From his reporting on the Civil Rights movement to his award-winning coverage of Vietnam, Halberstam is often considered the voice that personifies our nation's collective consciousness. Following in the successes of his national bestsellers, Halberstam now turns his astute eye to the latest events that have entwined themselves within the American psyche.

FIREHOUSE is a portrait of Engine 40 Ladder 35 located on the Upper West Side in New York City, which lost twelve men in the World Trade Center attack. FIREHOUSE also offers insight into daily life in a firehouse that is representative of every urban firehouse in America.

This is a book full of astonishing detail: the lingo, the relationships, the dangers, and simple daily life.
