80 pagine, abbondantemente illustrate con foto e artwork, presentano il disegno, lo sviluppo, l’impiego e l’impatto sulla storia dell’arma presa in esame.
The focus of this book is a weapon that has literally placed the power of fire in human hands - the man-portable flamethrower. From its first use in World War I to its deployment in Vietnam, the weapon has proven to be devastatingly effective, not least because of its huge psychological impact on enemy troops. Yet despite this, the man-portable flamethrower has always been vulnerable, suffering from a very particular set of limitations, all of which are explored here. Featuring expert analysis, first-hand accounts, and a startling array of illustrations and photographs, this book is the definitive guide to an extraordinary chapter in the history of military technology.
