    Unexploded bomb By Major A.B Hartley

    Bill hartleys book was the very first book i read on Bomb disposal and still has pride of place on the bookcase. even though i have read this book about fifty times , over the past 20 years it still thrills me to read , especially about Major John Hudson defeating the Y fuze .
    John is no longer with us i,m sorry to say he died on December 6 th last year, he will be sadly missed by all of us who knew him.

    re The lonely war by Eric Wakeling

    Another book that can be reccomended is Eric wakelings book , that tells you about bomb disposal through the eyes of one who was their.
    Eric started off in a gas warfare unit hastily converted to bomb disposal , he survived the war and later came to be in charge of beach mine clearance.
    worth reading.

    DangerUXB Melony Yappy

    Melonys book is printed in conjunction with the channel 4 documentary aired on British television in 2001, im slightly biased as i too was part of te advisory team along with Arthur Hogben Eric Wakeling John Hudson to name but a few , i always iand still feel humbled meeting these great But ordinary guys thrown into the terror of war .
    enjoy it

    German Code book by Michael heidller

    This is a new book just published containing 500 plus pages on all the german codes, it goes beyond the previous book on German codes published 20 years ago.
    Michael has spent a lot of time researching through the fragmented files in Germany and has come up with a winner in my view, he also lists thec odes for small arms and medals etc .
    Worth investing in a copy
