In this presentation, Prof Gary Sheffield takes a close look at the use of gas as a weapon in the Great 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.
