Book Description: 1st ed., 1958. Xiii + 272 pp., photo-plates + 3 ills. D.j., 21 x 14cm. Small owner's stamp to f.f.e.p., & a trace of 3 numbers on rear e.p., some browning to d.j., but no loss or clipping ; o/w Nr.FINE. With little knowledge and no special tools, the men of Bomb Disposal took their lives in their hands every time they unearthed and dismantled delayed action bombs designed with fiendish ingenuity and variety to detonate when tampered with. As fast as super-human gallantry revealed the intricacies of a new mechanism the pattern changed ; booby trap was added to booby trap ; the casualties were numerous and crippling, for the most highly skilled were the inevitable victims. But the cold-blooded bravery of the men who volunteered confounded the worst that German science could devise. This is the first book, written after the security embargo had been raised, to give a full account of the work of Bomb Disposal, its origins, its problems, its technical development under the tutelage of the Department of Scientific Research, its methods devised in the midst of emergency, its spirit and traditions forged in the knowledge that death waited at every turn. It is a story not only of Britain at war ; it covers the work of Companies in the Middle East and in Europe during and after the invasion ; it deals with the work of Bomb Disposal's opposite numbers in Germany and Japan and it deals with the dangerous work of minefield clearance after the war.
