    Default Books on Firefighting Topics???

    I am looking for some books on topics that revolve around the fire service. Anything from firefighting topics, to scene command issues, to lessons learned. I am looking for this to read in my spare time ( like I have a lot of free time anyway).

    I have completed numerous classes / courses, but like to read some books produced from the class room feel. Any recommendations you guys would offer would be greatly apperciated.

    Thanks,
