Gas Warfare in the First World War
Gas warfare is seen by many as a terror weapon that sets the First World War apart from all other conflicts. Yet as a weapon of destruction gas lagged well behind artillery, and in spite of initial beliefs that it could be a war-winner, in this respect it proved a disappointment for both the Germans and the Allies - but it still had a significant role to play in the Allied victory of 1918. In this lecture Professor Gary Sheffield, Hon. President of The Western Front Association, looks at why gas gained such a fearsome reputation, during the war and subsequently, and how chemical warfare developed over the course of 1915-18.
