German's are suppose to be very good with explosives.But it was evident these were not.

When there was some old 'dock-work' required demolishing next door to the Thames at Greenwich 40 years ago, it was decided only the German's were capable of doing a first class close proximity job. They arrived, did the job, then left, leaving quite a bit of knowledge behind for future master blasters.

They were a bit TOO good during the Blitz!

I think you'll find that it's explosives experts who are good with explosives, whether they're German, Indonesian, Lebanese, Scottish, Chinese.... etc.

It's not just a myth, the Germans do tend to be very methodical, always an advantage when working with explosives.

I remember when I was having a teaching assessment I was criticised for placing too much emphasis on the procedure, rather than on the technique.

The non-specialist assessor did accept my defence that with explosives the procedure is the technique.

However, there are always exceptions to prove the rule!
