by Mervyn Base
The hair-raising adventures of a wartime bomb-disposal
Mervyn Base was a member of one of the first RAF Bomb Disposal squads to be formed during the Battle of Britain. The work by these crews kept RAF airfields operational and was a major factor in our eventual victory.
In this modest and unassuming book, he writes revealingly about this and his later wartime BD work in the Middle East and Italy.
