This is essentially a factual recounting of the events leading up to, and consequential to the Harrow accident. The detail is impressive, including many contemporary photos, but the telling is rather dry. 'Red for Danger' it isn't. To be fair, the author does not set out to tell the story of the accident, including the rescue and clear up operations, in anything but a factual manner. If you are fascinated by accidents in general, but the Harrow disaster in particular, this is a useful addition to the bookshelf.
