Abstract:

One of the several objectives of the PROJECT NIMROD effort was to correct a number of misconceptions regarding the effectiveness of the mine as a modern naval weapon misconceptions which consistently rendered more difficult the support of an aggressive research and development program. The results of this effort were included in the final report of PROJECT NIMROD, and subsequently issued as a separate report entitled A Brief History of Mine Warfare. Research on the History provided an unique opportunity to assemble most of the historical literature on mine warfare. Having gone to considerable effort to identify and gain access to well over two thousand documents, continuing to the present time, the authors believe the effort should be preserved in the form of a bibliography for use by future researchers. This document is offered for that purpose.
