Kenneth Joseph Robb Langmaid. "Of all the weapons used at sea perhaps the most devilish and the most feared has been the mine. Comparatively cheap, far-reaching in its effect, it has more than once turned the tide not only of a battle, but of a whole campaign. This book traces the development of the sea-mine from its conception and man's first efforts to put it into use, beginning with the Fire Ships and the dangerous experiments of the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries up to the period of 1914. Captain Langmata then tells the story of the part played by this formidable weapon in the First and Second World Wars. He discusses thoroughly the manner in which the varying types of mine were invented and discovered, the successes and failures, the campaigns in which they were used, and gives individual incidents of heroism of the men whose job it was to deal with the new versions of this deadly weapon. He also tells ofthe men who planned, laid and swept the minefields and of those who died w ithout knowing how or even why. It is a record of cunning and countermeasures, extreme cruelty and extreme courage." (from the dj). Contents : Part I - Early History. 1. Fireships and an Unexpected Development. 2.
