GAS WARFARE IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR: Anti-Gas Protection and Gas Masks in the Armies of the German Empire, Austria-Hungary and Italy
Describes the development of WWI gas-defence equipment over time, including the first respirators borrowed from the sanitary sector to sophisticated protective masks with filters and their corresponding containers and special clothing for protection against blister-forming gases. Numerous official documents from the war years are accompanied by a number of important original photographs. Photographs of more than 200 original specimens preserved in private collections and museums illustrate the most important gas-defence equipment used during WWI by Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy.
Also contains an historical overview of research in the field of poison gases by the three nations, information about the industries that took part in their production, and a chapter dedicated to the most important types of poison gas.
