Editorial Reviews

Soon after the United States entered World War II, President Roosevelt received information that Germany and Japan were developing biological weapons. In response, the U.S. and its allies rushed to develop their own germ warfare program, enlisting some of America's most promising scientists in the effort. This program examines the race to develop biological weapons in the 40s and 50s, and the challenges and moral dilemmas the scientists faced.

This program is a very competent look at the development of biological weapons from WWI through the entry into force of the Bio Weapons Convention in the mid-1970"s. It is also a chilling education in the dangers of weaponizing biological agents.
It does not deal with chemical weapons, except in passing, and it does not speak to more recent bio scares, such as the 2001 anthrax mailings, or the implications of bio warfare in an age of asymmetrical warfare.
