The Poisonous Cloud

Chemical Warfare in the First World War

L. F. Haber

A Clarendon Press Publication

This study, based on previously unavailable archival material and statistical data, explores the military role of chemical warfare during the First World War as well as its effects on people, industries, and administration on both sides. The book also fully examines the complex issues raised by this new technology, which were debated endlessly between the wars and have led to recent agreements among the powers to curb their use of chemical or biological warfare.
