Miners, explosive experts and national patriots in World War II. and in the years followed
by János Ráfis Hajdu
This book has not particularly a local reference, since the work of the bomb disposal squad is a very special field. There is one thing though, namely that the writer himself used to be a squad member in the army. The writer together with his fellow writers recall the difficulties and experiences of their work. The book contains not only memoirs but it has a real treat for those who are intrigued by bombs : sketches of János Ráfis Hajdu gives the reader a detailed image and descritpion of the bombs, ammunition, cartridges and grenades of the 20th. century. This authentic piece of work is illustrated with period photos picturing the everyday life of soldiers. This book is a must to those interested in wartime engineering and the life of soldiers.
The book is available in Hungarian!
