Chemicals in War


THE author's intention in the publication of this. comprehensive work is to present to the public an authentic account of a much misrepresented and misunderstood subject, to give the American point of view on chemical warfare and to trace its development from its beginning in the World War to the present time. He is well qualified to undertake such a task, as he served in the War as assistant to General Fries, who was chief of the Chemical Warfare Service of the American Expeditionary Forces, and he has been on continuous duty in the American Chemical Warfare Service ever since.
