A catalog of information on the history and effects of napalm and other incendiary weapons, whose use has grown during past decades. On-the-horizon weapons, such as chemical fire balls, will present frightening possibilities. This book should be of use in forthcoming negotiations on international legal conventions to prohibit some types of incendiary weapons.
