Great Fire of London

David A Weiss

The Great Fire Of London entertains, informs and suggests startling parallels to today’s world.

Join such historical figures as King Charles II whose far-seeing plan rebuilt a city; Samuel Pepys whose diary told the tale; and Christopher Wren whose architectural genius brought London back to life.

The narrative brings the old tale to life, revealing the epic mess, the tangle of antique property law which had to be cut, set aside, or unraveled, and the sudden bankruptcies, privations, courage and tenacious good will on which the new London was slowly to rise again.

A wonderful and straightforward account of the Great Fire of 1666.
