HFM 156 | Churchill’s Affinity for Chemical Weapons

November 22, 2016


Our guest today is Giles Milton, the host of the Unknown History Podcast.

Giles is going to talk all about Churchill’s affinity for chemical weapons, something I didn’t even know was a thing.
He answers all sorts of questions in this interview. Questions like:
  • Did Churchill ever actually go forward with the use of chemical weapons?
  • What happened to the victims of the attack in Russia?
  • How did the weather dampen the effect of the poisonous gas?
  • What did Churchill do with the remaining devices?
