Bomb and Mine Disposal Officers

Antony Loveless (author)

Publisher: Crabtree Publishing Company ISBN: 9780778798071

To be completely alone while everyone else has taken cover?

This book looks at life as a bomb or mine disposal officer, and covers what sort of person becomes a bomb disposal officer: a day in the life; training; types of devices; and the history of bomb disposal from WW1 to the present day in Iraq, Israel, and Afghanistan.

Fighter Pilots

Antony Loveless (author)

Publisher: Crabtree Publishing Company ISBN: 9780778798088

There are no second places in aerial combat. Fighter pilots have perhaps the most dangerous job of all pilots - engaging other aircraft in order to shoot them down, or flying over enemy territory to drop bombs. Learning to master flying such a complex jet is only part of the job. Ultimately, a fighter jet is no more than a weapons platform, and the pilot must be better than his or her rivals in using the jet's weapons. This book will examine what it takes to become a fighter pilot; what the job is like; the jets and equipment required; and what its like to fly at twice the speed of sound in pursuit of an enemy.

War Correspondents

Sabrina Crewe (author)

Publisher: Crabtree Publishing Company ISBN: 9781427180742

In the age of 24-hour news television, some war correspondents have become media stars by "embedding" or attaching themselves to a particular military unit in order to follow and report on their activities. Journalists who report on conflicts keep the world's citizens up to date by showing the reality of war. In the last century, the safety of war correspondents was usually respected by both sides involved in a conflict. Not so in modern warfare. War correspondents not only have to fear being killed or wounded in an attack they are reporting on, they have increasingly become the direct targets of violence and kidnapping themselves. This book describes the dangerous process of reporting on war and steps correspondents take to ensure their safety.
