About the book

  • 1915, Innocence Slaughtered. Edited book. Project sponsored by In Flanders Fields Museum, Ypres. Estimated publication: December 2015. Chapters discuss the first year of chemical warfare in the 1st World War, which saw the introduction of chlorine (22 April) and phosgene (19 December) as weapons. The volume also discusses the factors that contributed to the introduction of chemical weapons, the international response to the new mode of warfare, and the public debate on the legality and morality of chemical warfare, which only after the November 1918 Armistice became a really divisive social issue in Europe.
