The History Of Landmines (Hardback)
Public interest in landmines is recent, but their use and that of their non-explosive predecessors has a history which spans 2,500 years. Mike Croll explains the development, employment and reactions to these weapons from the concealed spikes of antiquity to the electronically-fused systems of today. A former Royal Engineer officer and an experienced deminer, Mike Croll is particularly well fitted to write about landmines. He has a balanced, dispassionate perspective and this book will greatly contribute to the understanding of the subject.
