This encyclopedic A-Z of international firefighting equipment is the definitive guide to fire engines and fire-engine manufacturers worldwide. It includes more than 165 contemporary and defunct manufacturers, all of whom have produced innovative and specialist fire-fighting equipment that has contributed to the development, design and engineering of the contemporary fire engine. Each manufacturer's company history, innovations and specialist equipment are listed. Over 375 black and white and colour photographs provide a visual history of the fire engines manufactured including pumpers, aerial ladders, engines, and specialist rescue tenders. Technical specifications are included for a ground-breaking fire engine produced by each manufacturer. All the well-known makes are included such as AEC, Alexander Perries, American LaFrance, Australian Fire Company, Baribbi, Buffalo, Cedes, Crown, Dennis, Ferrara, Ford, Hackney, Hino, Metz, Plastisol, Volkan, and ZIL. Fire engines are some of the most impressive, enterprising, and sophisticated vehicles invented and built by mankind since the beginning of time. This definitive collection is perfect for both the new enthusiast, and for the experienced tranport historian, providing not a detailed technical sourcebook, but also an amazing visual catalogue of the world's best and finest machines.
