CBW in WW
What a pleasure to discover an expert in that history!
I am eager to learn whatever you can find about the German decision to produce (and then not to use) CW. And Ambros' extraordinary claim of his posture with Hitler. Please, also keep your eyes open for material on the intelligence [mark to note, We now know this was spurious; but one consequence was the Merck Report, Ft. Detrick, and a huge US BW weapons program that was only terminated in 1972.] that led US Chiefs to believe that the Nazis were developing Biological Weapons.
I am currently quite active in CBW arms control (and advice to the Army Medical Research Command) -- and this history is quite important for contemporary perspectives, mil. [?] German companies exports of CW material.
Sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
I understand you're away till mid June.
