The Illustrated Manual of U.S. Portable Flamethrowers

The Illustrated Manual of U.S. Portable Flamethrowers

Book & CD. This is the first book to cover U.S. portable flamethrowers in detail, and explores the development of each model, the prototypes, failures and standardised models with the history of use in combat from our first failed attempts in World War I, through World War II, Korea and Vietnam, until all flamethrowers were removed from the U.S. arsenal in 1985. The book is well illustrated with historical and current photos. When photos were not available for certain models, flamethrowers were restored, fired and photographed. Details on how flamethrowers work are also covered, both in the main book text and in the wartime manuals reproduced in full on a Mac and PC compatible CD.
