Windscale Anatomy of a nuclear accident AbeBooks Lorna Arnold:

Sort order. Dec 15, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: atomic. This book covers the event known a the Windscale Fire of This event has been covered in various other books, but this slim volume is devoted exclusively to the event. The actual text of the book was just okay. While it covers what you would expect, a good deal of the text seemed to be devoted to the political side of the accident. There was so much detail on various committees, papers and other such things that could have been better used focusing on the accident in some other aspect.

Base This book covers the event known a the Windscale Fire of Based on the text alone, this probably would have been a 3 star book. The book includes numerous appendices, diagrams, a list of abbreviations and diagrams that really helped bring focus to the text.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? It does, and her excellent book shows why. In one of the two reactors built at Windscale was destroyed by fire, in the world's first major nuclear accident. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? This is how technical history should be researched and written and I cannot recommend this book too highly.

This would be an excellent resource for someone studying the history of major nuclear accidents, as the Windscale Fire is considered the first.
