A history of gas warfare during the First World War, written by the Lt Col (later General) who formed the Chemical Warfare Service and ran it for decades. Written to defend the Gas Service against postwar budget cuts, "Chemical Warfare" is a detailed look at the wartime efforts to develop and improve poison gases, to manufacture protective gas masks and filters, and to bring new weapons to the battlefield, including flamethrowers and early versions of napalm. An in-depth look at an area that is not often covered in military history. New Preface gives a historical overview.
