Major Explosion Accidents
In 1992 I wrote a paper analyzing major explosion accidents, comparing them to the 1917 Halifax harbour explosion. The purpose was to challenge the claim that the Halifax explosion was the largest man-made explosion prior to the atomic bomb. The paper was published in a book called GROUND ZERO in 1994, but without these illustrations. I've also included a few recent photos of RAF Fauld near Hanbury, England, where the crater from the 1944 explosion there can still be seen.
