The Germans at Kerch are reported to have used bombs, mortar and artillery shells
containing a powerful explosive involving liquid air with evidences of magnesium. The
resultant air pressure is reported to cause death by lung collapse, a reaction
similar to that of death by gas or asphyxiation. The usual protective measures are
said to be worthless due to the large effective radius.
G-2 Comment: Due to lack of United Nations observers on the Russian
front, no first hand information is available on this subject.
