  • The Last Men Out

    I am just about finished with this book and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyone else? Or maybe someone has another book they could suggest. I've also read Report from Ground Zero.

    Not long after I joined my old volunteer department,a relative gave me a copy of "Last Man Down"about Chief Picciotto(sp?)'s being the highest ranking FDNY survivor of Sept 11.Excellent book.
    I just hope there aren't too many people trying to claim to have been there like some people did in the 80s when being a Viet nam vet got to be popular to talk about.

      I thought "Bagpipe Brothers - The FDNY Band's True Story of Tragedy, Mourning, and Recovery" by Kerry Sheridan was well written.

        I read the Last Men Out, thought it was really good. Richie Evers sounds like a pretty tough guy, I liked the parts about him.

                Strong of Heart.....Devoid of Character

                My volunteer chief read this book (he loved it) and all of the sudden he started acting like an a*****e and not caring what the members needed.

                For those of you that don't know, I'm not FDNY so my views do not necessarily represent their members

                    He is a self-serving collaborationist of the highest order. He is to such a degree, a quisling, that from henseforth, any use of the name Benedict Arnold shall be supplanted with Tom "the CanMan" VonEssen.

                    There I said it.

                    PS- Ever notice how he is shown with his back to us in the cover photo of his book of lies...so many parallels to his real character.

                      It is not a book about FDNY, but I just finished reading Pride and Ownership by Rick Lasky. I thought that it was pretty good. Isn't Last Men Out about Rescue 2 or am I thinking about another book?

                        Thanks for the feedback... I think! LOL!

                        Last Men Out is about Rescue2. I've been looking for Pride and Ownership. Thanks for the suggestion... ( couple of months late!)

                          I've been reading Report From Ground Zero by Dennis Smith and have teared up a couple of times.

                            I just finished "3000 Degrees" and "Firehouse" about the Worchestor Ma cold storage fire and an engine/truck house in NYC that lost both crews except for one guy on Sept 11.

                              Dennis Smith is fool, I hope you did not buy his book. A pure opportunist like Tom Suck it up Von Essen. Downey's book was a great one, really felt like you were in the clown wagon with them!
