Civil War Heavy Explosive Ordnance: A Guide to Large Artillery Projectiles, Torpedoes, and Mines

Civil War Heavy Explosive Ordnance: A Guide to

Civil War Heavy Explosive Ordnance is the definitive reference book on Union and Confederate large caliber artillery projectiles, torpedoes, and mines. Some of these projectiles are from the most famous battles of the Civil War, such as those at Fort Sumter, Charleston, Vicksburg, Richmond, Fort Pulaski, Fort Fisher, Mobile Bay, Port Hudson, and the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Others were fired from famous cannon: the “Swamp Angel” of Charleston, the 10-inch Parrott rifles and 12.75 Blakely rifles used in Charleston, “Whistling Dick” of Vicksburg, and the 8-inch British Armstrong rifle and 8-inch Blakely rifle of Fort Fisher. And some are from ships such as the Alabama, Richmond, Pawnee, and Montauk, or were involved in torpedo attacks against major warships.Jack Bell covers more than 360 projectiles in smoothbore calibers of 32-pounder and up and rifled projectiles of 4-inch caliber and larger. Bell also documents twenty-one Union and Confederate torpedoes and mines, both those from historical records and those that have survived to modern times. Each projectile and torpedo is presented in a data sheet showing multiple views of the specimen and providing data including, but not limited to, diameter, weight, the gun used to fire it, rarity index, and provenance.

21st Century U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service Field Manual (FM 9-15) Bombs, Mines, Munitions

21st Century U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service

This is the latest edition of an important U.S. Army field manual (FM) covering explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) services and unit operations. In the preface, it states: "This FM prescribes EOD doctrine for conducting EOD operations during war and OOTW. It develops and defines the EOD perspective on the Army's keystone warfighting doctrine described in FM 100-5. This manual identifies the EOD mission, organization, roles, capabilities, and employment to support national security strategy. It serves as a guide for commanders and staff who will use EOD support for operations on conventional, chemical, nuclear, and improvised explosive ordnance. It also provides the EOD unit commander, staff, and personnel general and technical guidance for conducting EOD unit operations. FM 9-15 discusses several doctrinal changes: the implementation of the heavy and light EOD response team concept, the effect on EOD of the removal of the Army's tactical nuclear weapons from its inventories, and the role of Army EOD in the postnuclear Army." The explosive ordnance disposal challenge is described this way: "EOD service helps preserve the commander's combat power. It enables the commander to integrate and coordinate a variety of functions to prevent degeneration of combat power at the operational an...
