Manual of Bomb Disposal

This is a compendium of four important manuals on bomb reconnaissance and disposal. The four manuals are: Bomb Reconnaissance and Protection against Unexploded Bombs (1941 and 1952 - British War Office), Disposal methods for enemy bombs and fuses (US Navy 1942) and German Fuses (extracted from Enemy Explosive Ordnance - United States War Department 1946). What the pamphlets show is the threat of unexploded bombs and ordnance, and the methods devised to render such devices safe to handle and destroy. All four components are important in understanding this rather dangerous craft, but none more so that the 1942 manual which gives details of the equipment used to cope with German ingenuity in making fuses booby-traps as well. If you ever wondered what the butterfly bomb looked like, or the clock stopper, then this is the book for you. Amply illustrated with photographs and line drawings.
