Summary
During WWII, the Nazis dropped some bombs that were not designed to detonate on impact. These unexploded time bombs, UXBs, posed one of the greatest risks to the people and property of England. It was the job of real-life heroes of the bomb disposal squads to defuse them. Danger UXB is the story of the loves and lives, victories and defeats, played against the background of a nation gripped by war
