The men and women of the Firemen Artist Group were members of the Auxiliary Fire Service, braving danger during the Blitz in London, Coventry and Bath as Churchill's 'angels with grimy faces'. This lavish study sheds some light on this unfairly neglected aspect of the art of the Second World War. A comprehensive text follows the Group's evolution including exhibitions and a tour of the USA and Canada, and is complemented by reproductions of their powerfully authentic paintings and drawings.
