A propos de cet article

Xxxii, 332 pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. From the DJ: "No single weapon can be credited with winning a war, but some secret weapons have come close. In World War II, for the first time in history, the outcome was affected by weapons unknown at the time hostilities began. The proximity fuze has not had the kind of fanfare given to the atomic bomb, but it was used with deadly effectiveness during the war, particularly in the air defence of Britain. It played a critical role in protecting the U. S. Fleet from Japanese air attack in the Pacific. Incredibly, at the war's end, the military leaders of German and Japan were still unaware of its existence and, in fact, considered such a development impractical." ; 8.90 X 6.20 X 1.10 inches; 332 pages.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This book is a technical history of the fuze device used by the United State military during World War II, which enabled bombs to explode when targets such as planes were near, enhancing accuracy. Developed in secret, the device was used against the Japanese and German forces, both of which were not aware of the technology. This work includes a look at its technology, the secrecy surrounding the project.
