Exploding Fuel Tanks tells the story of air war over the Pacific in World War Two from the perspective of aircraft vulnerability.

e history. Well-written; extremely well researched (many excellent photographs); exciting reading; and important lessons learned. Highly recommended (Hon. Jacques S. Gansler, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland, former Under Secretary of Defense). "Rick Dunn is to be commended for having written the first comprehensive study of a vital subject in aviation history which, all too often, has received only superficial and subjective treatment. His probing analysis strips away widely-held misconceptions and much myth surrounding the issues to reveal a complex multi-layered reality. Every serious student of military aviation history should read this book (Osamu Tagaya, Aviation historian and author). "Rick Dunn tells the fascinating story of how Britain and Germany developed the first 'crash proof fuel tanks,' and how other countries including the United States and Japan scrambled to catch up, to save their pilots from death or disfiguring burns. With many splendid photos and drawings, this is a must for every military aviation library" (Daniel Ford, author of Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers).
