Fire Department City of New York
The Bravest
An Illustrated History 1865 to 2002

by Paul Hashagen, Author & Firefighter
Janet Kimmerly, Contributor & Editor

This comprehensive history of the FDNY revises and updates the original "Millennium Edition Book" that was released in September 2000. It tells the story of organized firefighting in New York City-- from the earliest days of New Amsterdam to the unprecedented heroic efforts at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. Also included are action photos, profiles of famous Department members, features on apparatus and fireboats and a 15-page pictorial dedication to the men lost on 9/11.

It is a legacy of bravery and devotion to duty that continues from the present day and into the new millennium. This is the story of the firefighters of the FDNY and the people and the city they protect.
