HANDWRITTEN NOTES. 
SUMMARY:    BURNING COMPOUNDS, TO INCLUDE THERMITE, ELECTRONS, 
WHITE PHOSPHORUS, AND NAPALM, CAN BE DELIVERED BY AIRPLANE, 
MORTARS, BURNING MINES, AND FLAME THROWERS.  COVERED BUNKERS AND 
PROTECTIVE SUITS PROVIDE PROTECTION. 
TEXT: (U). 
1.     BURNING COMPOUNDS. 
1A.     THERMITE--A MIXTURE OF ALUMINUM AND ION OXIDE.  THE 
BURNING POINT IS 3000 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.  IT CAN BURN WITHOUT 
OXYGEN.  WHEN USING AN ELECTRIC HEATER FOR HEATING TO 3000 DEGREES 
CENTIGRADE, THE HEAT DISSIPATION WILL CAUSE THE ELECTRIC HEATER TO 
REACH 1000 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. 
1B.     ELECTRON--A MIXTURE OF ALUMINUM AND MAGNESIUM.  THE 
BURNING POINT IS 2800 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.  IT BURNS WITH A 
SMOKELESS WHITE 
FLAME. 
1C.     WHITE PHOSPHORUS--AN OPAQUE SUBSTANCE.  THE BURNING POINT 
IS 1200 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.   IT BURNS WITH A YELLOW FLAME AND 
DENSE SMOKE.  IT HAS A POISONOUS EFFECT WHEN IT ENTERS THE BODY. 
1D.      NAPALM--A MIXTURE OF BENZINE AND A DENSER LIQUID CALLED 
NAPHTHA.  THE BURNING POINT IS 1200 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.  IT BURNS 
WITH A RED FLAME AND DENSE BLACK SMOKE. 
2.     METHODS OF REACHING TARGET.   TARGETS ARE REACHED BY USING 
AIRPLANES, MORTARS/ARTILLERY FOR PHOSPHORUS), BURNING MINES, AND 
FLAME THROWERS. 
3.     PROTECTION FROM BURNING COMPOUNDS.  PROTECTION CONSISTS OF 
COVERED BUNKERS AND CHEMICAL/FIRE PROTECTIVE SUITS. 
4.     USE OF SMOKE. 
5.     METHODS OF PRODUCING SMOKE. 
6.     PRINCIPLES OF NIGHT ATTACK. 
7.     ORGANIZING A NIGHT ATTACK. 
8.     THE PURPOSE OF A NIGHT ATTACK. 
9.     JUNGLE NIGHT FIGHTING.
