Summary
"In six weeks during April and May 1915, as World War I escalated, Germany forever altered the way war would be fought with poison gas, torpedoes killing civilians, and aerial bombardment. Each of these actions violated rules of war carefully agreed at the Hague Conventions of 1898 and 1907. The era of weapons of mass destruction had dawned. While each of these momentous events has been chronicled in histories of the war, historian Diana Preston links them for the first time, revealing the dramatic stories behind each through the eyes of those who were there, whether making the decisions or experiencing their effect." --
Summary
An acclaimed historian chronicles the birth of weapons of mass destruction during World War I, including the use of poison gas by the Germans at Ypres, the torpedoes that sunk the Lusitania and an aerial bombardment of London by a zeppelin
