Volcano Town
The 1937-43 Rabaul Eruptions

This book covers the wartime eruptions of the volcanoes around Rabaul, including 1937, 1941 and once during the Japanese occupation during 1943. The book briefly deals with the wartime history of the volcanoes, including a feasibility study by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) to bomb the volcano to trigger an eruption. It also mentions the Japanese wartime Volcano Observatory at Sulphur Creek manned by civilian Dr. Takashi Kizawa.
