[Image] Explosive End Vol 1.

Tobruk, Libya, 1941.

Wreckage of bombed Italian ammunition truck.

VX48227 Pvt. Charles T. Jury of HQ 26th Australian Infantry Brigade examines the wreckage of an Italian ammunition truck. Note the artillery shell casings littered around the very skeletal remains of the truck. It would have been some sight to behold to witness this truck explode. I can't even imagine the force of a blast of that size.

Nothing would have survived this blast.
