DESCRIPTION: A fascinating and exciting story of one of the areas of military 
service that receives very little attention from historians. The photo-plate sections 
adds to the text with some very interesting images. – Very Highly Recommended.

The military often prepares best for the wars it never fights. In the period since 1945, 
nuclear weapons have dominated procurement and deployment because of the 
potential for the Cold War turning into a very hot war. In reality, nuclear weapons 
have only been used in anger against Japan in 1945, but there has been almost 
continuous conventional warfare somewhere in the world. In the Korean War, large 
ground forces were deployed by both sides, with the UN Force having considerable 
air support, using rockets, iron bombs and napalm. The Middle East has been, and 
continues, at war without apparent end in sight, and the break up of the Soviet Union 
and its satellites has produced further conflicts with high death tolls.

During this period, a relatively small number of engineers and weapons technicians 
have been essential to the arming of personal, vehicles, ships and aircraft. They have 
also been heavily involved in the process of clearing mines and disposing of bombs 
and IEDs. In his recollections, the author has produced an exciting collection of 
stories from his own experiences, together with his observations of his trade.
