Night action : MTB flotilla at war by Peter Dickens ( Book )
11 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This memoir is Peter Dickens' account of his experiences as the young commander of the 21st MTB Flotilla during 1942-43, mainly in the North Sea and the Channel. In all the annals of the war at sea, comparatively little has been written about the role of the torpedo boat, and yet these small and vulnerable boats, travelling at high speed amid storms and gunfire, and usually under the cover of darkness, managed to closely engage enemy convoys and escorts in high-speed attacks and wreak havoc among the German supply lines. Like the sailors who fought against the U-boats in the battle of the Atlantic, Dickens and his comrades were experiencing a new kind of warfare and had to hit upon the techniques and tactics as they went along; their kind of action called for great courage, spilt-second timing and complete understanding between captain and crew. Night Action is a lively and thrilling account, but also one which is frank and carefully considered; there is humour but the horror of war is never far away and the author conveys to the reader a sharp sense of the reality of those operations in a way that no history book can do

New Materials for Electrochemical Cells ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The research had two main aims: (i) determination of the thermochemical, structural and electrochemical properties of insertion compounds and materials showing mixed electronic/ionic conduction, and (ii) the design, preparation and characterization of new materials for use as electrolytes or cathode materials in solid state cells. The progress of this research has been described in the series of scientific reports and renewal proposals submitted during the research period and discussed in detail through the scientific publications listed above. New ambient-temperature lithium and hydrogen insertion compounds have been prepared from the uranium oxides U3O8, alpha, gamma and delta UO3. Electrochemical and thermochemical parameters have been determined for these phases and also for the hydrogen insertion compounds of vanadium oxide mixed molybdenumtungsten trioxides and new structural modifications tungsten oxide and molybdenum oxide; the phase previously known as hexagonal MoO3 has been shown to be a partially deammoniated and dehydrated ammonium decamolybdate
