10-Mar

I've just picked up a copy of this booklet which is an official review first published soon after the end of WW2, and now reprinted.

The actual report is less than 40 pages long, followed by a larger number of pages devoted to illustrations of variable quality. This will be useful for anyone researching in this field as there are copious footnotes concerning the source material, mostly in the form of Ordnance Committee Minutes.

This covers more than just weapons, for instance there is a page on fuel octanes .
