Since the Second World War, BD has continued to become more sophisticated and demanding on personnel as white phosphorous, chemical munitions and sophisticated rockets and missile systems have been added to the inventory of the BD operator. Some militaries refer to these personnel as EOD Technicians now. However the rules are the same and selection of personnel is based upon an exacting (and unforgiving)process.
The authors have related a great account of BD operations in the Pacific and trace the experience of J. Frank Durham from his induction into the US Navy through his BD training and on to operations in the South Pacific. He was subsequently transferred back to the United States and completed the war as a BD Instructor.
I liked this book because it gave an account of personal experiences of a person who saw a different perspective of the Second World War, while near the front line, BD work is another confrontation with the enemy and, as the title states, only allows you to make a mistake once and usually not live to experience another.Read more ›
