About Book

Book Description
1923. With a preface by Marshal Foch. An account of the critical struggle for power and for the decisive war initiative. The campaign fostered by the great Rhine factories, and the pressing problems which they represent. A matter of preeminent public interest concerning the sincerity of disarmament, the future of warfare, and the stability of peace. The book describes the development of chemical (gas) warfare in a most readable fashion. The main idea of the book was to dissuade the League of Nations from banning chemical weapons since, at the time, the Allies had the ascendancy. Contents: Explanatory; The German Surprise; The Allied Reaction; Intensive Chemical Warfare; Chemical Warfare Organizations; The Struggle for the Initiative; Review of Production; American Developments; German Chemical Policy; Lines of Future Development; Humane or Inhumane? Chemical Warfare and Disarmament.

Download Description
The production of a protective appliance, the gas mask, was vital. This development will be considered later. Allied chemical warfare organisations arose, to become an important factor in the later stages of the war. The history of Allied gas organisation is one of the gradual recognition that chemical warfare represented a new weapon with new possibilities, new specific uses, and new requirements from the rear.
