    Review:

    Flame On: U.S. Incendiary Weapons, 1918-1945, by Brig. Gen. John Mountcastle, USA Ret., is a concise and comprehensive history of the development and use of incendiary weapons (including flamethrowers, incendiary bombs, napalm, and more) by the American military in the twentieth century, with a special focus on World War II. . . . The latest addition to the simply outstanding Stackpole Military History series, Flame On is enhanced with the inclusion of twenty-eight pages of notes, a thirty-four page bibliography, and a comprehensive index. Impressively well researched, written, organized, and presented, Flame On is a critically important and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library American military history reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists. (James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review)
