Details

The killing of soldiers and sailors by men on their own side is an accidental hazard as old as warfare itself. Acts of so-called ‘friendly fire’ were often kept quiet in the past, but since wars are now fought before a world-wide audience, such secrecy is no longer possible and the subject became a matter of heated debate at the time of the Gulf War. The author has uncovered over a hundred incidents of engagements between ships, submarines and aircraft on the same side in World War II. This is the first time that all the information has been gathered together in a single volume; it has been drawn from naval archives available in Britain, France, Italy, USA, Russia and Japan.

Hardcover, 198 pgs, photographs, source notes, bibliography, index. As new.
