Insight: There was now a new fear, the expansion of Russian (and Chinese) Communism. The British Government felt the need to produce a series of pamphlets to inform the General Public what they needed to do in case there was an attack by Russia (and her allies).
The pamphlets (book) are information, techniques and knowledge garnered from,
1. WWII attacks on Britain by the Germans
2. America’s attacks on the Japanese Cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
3. Britain’s own subsequent independent Atomic tests carried-out on the Monte Bello Islands and in Maralinga, Australia and later on the Malden Island and Christmas Island in the Central Pacific Ocean.
1) Basic Chemical Warfare, (1949) ... Deals with gas attacks of civilians
The following four chapters are rehashes of books issued to CD during the war
2) Basic Fire Fighting (1949) ...
3) Basic First Aid (1949) ...
4) Basic Rescue (1949) ...
5) Basic Methods Of Protection Against High Explosive Missiles (1949)
6) Atomic Warfare (1950), A lot of this chapter is taken up of pictures of damage in Nagasaki / Hiroshima, with some rudimentry explainations of using geiger counters , exposure to radiation etc
Not too bad if you can get a cheap 2nd hand copy (it's in hardback), but if you have some of the others in the series like "Air Raid Precautions", it certainly isn't worth a tenner
