For this book, Chris Ransted has researched some of the lesser known events and personalities relating to the early years of Explosive Ordnance Disposal in the UK. Daring acts of cold blooded bravery, and ingenuity in the face of life threatening technical challenges, are recounted throughout the book. Included are numerous previously unpublished accounts and photographs that describe the disarming of German bombs, parachute mines, and even allied bombs found at aircraft crash sites. In addition, the book contains the most comprehensive account ever published of the Home Guard s role with the Auxiliary Bomb Disposal Units, and details of conscientious objector s involvement with unexploded bombs. This is not only a valuable research tool for serious researchers already well read on the subject, but also a fascinating read for those with no previous knowledge of wartime bomb disposal at all, and of course a must read for anyone interested in the subject.

About the Author

Chris Ransted works at The National Archives. His interest in the war years came about as a child, listening to family tales of life in London s docklands during the Blitz. Since a teenager he has collected artefacts and information relating to bomb disposal, and is devoted to keeping the memory of these brave men alive. He has had numerous magazine articles published on Bomb Disposal, as well as the books, _Disarming Hitler s V-Weapons_ and _Bomb Disposal and the British Casualties of WW2_.
