Inhaltsangabe: Merriam Press Military Monograph MM50
Fifth Edition (2013)
This is the first full account of the U.S. Army's use of 'controlled' mines to defend coastal areas from seaborne attack, from the Civil War through both World Wars, and even Vietnam.
Also covers the development of U.S. coastal defense fortifications, from the end of the Revolutionary War, with a full accounting of the development of the mines, as well as the squabbling between Army artillerymen that eventually led to the creation of the Coast Artillery.
Full details of the procedures utilized in laying and retrieving these mines is covered. Also included are details of the mine planter boats specially built for the task.
This is a complete operational history, which is primarily concerned with the World War II operations of this little-known area of U.S. military history.
