“When the time came to explore part of Australia’s outback for a weapons testing programme, Len Beadell was the natural choice to select and help prepare the site for a historic detonation in the lonely Australian back country.
With the road building exploits described in Too Long in the Bush behind him, Beadell was the perfect choice for the task of selecting and preparing the location for the weapons testing trials.  With his characteristic humour and embellished with his own cartoons, Beadell tells the story of the people who worked on the project – in some cases it was as much a trial of them as it was of any weapon – and he recounts the sequence of events that led up to the gigantic explosion that was to Blast the Bush.”
