Four Minutes to Hell: The Story of the Bradford City Fire

Four Minutes to Hell: The Story of the Bradford City FireWritten by Paul Firth and published by Parrswood Press, this for a long while was the only book published on the Bradford City fire. The best place to purchase the book is at Amazon by clicking here or eBay by clicking here (the original run is now out of print).

The book is full of riveting stories from people such as Gill page who were there on the day and saw the fire “take people’s skin off their backs” and hear a minority chant “Let it burn, let it burn”.

This is the description from the publishers:

“This is the story of that afternoon and its aftermath. It is told from the viewpoint of those who were there and those who became most directly involved. There are contributions from the injured, families who lost a loved one, professional footballers who became rescuers and comforters, police officers who risked their own lives and the surgeon and other professionals who cared for those who were burned. In the midst is the story of the archetypal modest hero, a man who saved lives and still denies doing anything out of the ordinary.

The book ends with the positive gains from the fire – how Bradford folk and the wider community rallied to help, the creation of a research unit for the treatment of burns and the unimaginable changes at Valley Parade in particular and football grounds in general. This is the story of a disaster inflicted on one group of people who just happened to be at a football match and of how that disaster was used to benefit so many others in the following years”.

The book is a fantastic read and we will hopefully be able to publish excerpts from the book on the site, we’re in the process of trying to track down Paul Firth.
