World War II Ordnance Illustrated Issue 6

Issue 6 is in and our readers have been very pleased. We dug in even deeper this time and put together a big article on U.S. flamethrowers in World War II. I’m very pleased with this piece as it gives our readers a look at a very important weapon that contributed a great deal to the final victory, particularly in the Pacific Theatre. Unfortunately there has been very little written about American flamethrowers, their development or use. I think we go some way to redress that situation. Jim Ballou also contributes a very unique and emotional piece on what it is like to use the M2 flame gun.
