    A comprehensive military history of chemical weapons from their root in WWI through 2006, War of Nerves does a fantastic job of illustrating how organizational imperatives and domestic politics play just as strong of role in weapon development programs as does defined military need or strategic imperatives Tucker is by no means polemical, but he does convey that the meta argument over deterrence often had little connection at best to military requirements, preparedness, and technical constraint A comprehensive military history of chemical weapons from their root in WWI through 2006, War of Nerves does a fantastic job of illustrating how organizational imperatives and domestic politics play just as strong of role in weapon development programs as does defined military need or strategic imperatives Tucker is by no means polemical, but he does convey that the meta argument over deterrence often had little connection at best to military requirements, preparedness, and technical constraints However, he also illustrates how close several states were to CW deployment as part of a broad conventional campaign, most strikingly Nazi Germany in 1945, combatant Arab states during the 1973 war with Israel, and Iraq in 1991 Tucker argues that in each case awareness of asymmetrical capabilities especially inability to protect their own populations from retaliation prevented otherwise logical CW use for military purposes If you accept that argument which Tucker d...

    This was an excellent history of the use of chemical weapons throughout the world in the twentieth and early twenty first century As a work of history, this book is extremely detailed and shows an in depth picture of how chemical weapons have been used by both governments and on state actors from World War I to the present day However, one flaw in the book is the author s argument that existing internat...

    If you ve branched Chem Corps in the military its an Ok read I think it focuses a little bit too much on the RD and then the demilitarization side, and not so much on the what were chemical soldiers doing at the time side, but its still a good history lesson Probably really boring to anybody else.
