 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This is a unique and most exhaustive encyclopedia of explosives, bombs and IEDs--from gunpowder to RDX; from door breaching to building implosions; from dumb bombs to smart bombs; from landmines to bunker busters; from napalm to fuel-air explosives; from alarm clock time bombs to IC chip controlled IEDs, from wired to remote control devices; from suicide bomb jackets to car bombs, everything is here.

Why do we need this book? Firstly, nobody in the world has written a book like this and secondly, because explosives are extremely important for the industry, the military and in everyday life.

With terrorists' bombs exploding all over the country, everybody must know what they are all about. Presently, not only the common people but the media, the security forces and the intelligence agencies everybody has only intriguing, vague and wild notions about the arcane field of explosives and bombs. Such ignorance is dangerous because it distorts perceptions. Distorted perceptions result in defective policy-making. This book will educate and enlighten all of them.

This book discusses not only all about explosives and bombs, their invention, and their inventors but also their place in history and industry, and the technology involved therein. This is a technical compendium, a collection of human stories, a historical survey, and a tribute to the conquests of technology, all blended into a highly readable treatise. This is as much a very high-standard reference book for those having some knowledge of explosives as it is a lively introduction to the subject for the layman.

The only affordable and complete encyclopaedia of weaponry in the whole world -- exhaustive yet attractive, informative yet interesting with 264 extremely rare pictures, it is the The Ultimate Book of Explosives, Bombs and IEDs.
