Frightfulness - Britain and the Advent of Chemical Warfare on the Western Front 1915 by Nick Paul

Rather than delving to any degree into types of gas, methods of delivery and the specific effects of gas, this talk focusses on the how and why did Britain engage in chemical warfare with Germany in 1915.  Was it purely revenge for the German use at Ypres in April 1915 or were the British preparing to use it anyway
