From the reviews: “The book written by … Peter O. K. Krehl is a tour de force describing the historic development of explosion and shock wave science. … The book with almost 1300 pages and more than 1500 pictures is an extraordinary compilation of the development of shock wave physics and explosion science over time. Its encyclopaedic style allows for easy access, both for scientists or for students … . I found myself unable to stop reading once I started. The book is essential for public libraries.” (Rolf Prümmer, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, Vol. 34 (5), October, 2010)
