i, for no reason i can find, am amazed at the tactics and history behind chemical warfare. i have always loved WWI and find that thee photos are just so damn interesting. at first glance these masks are so stupid, so useless, but these were a reaction to the new horrors of th new battleground. i love seeing the different designs and just think that these images are well worth sharing.

enjoy

    remember, it’s not a weapon of mass destruction

    it’s a weapon of area denial.
