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?
