Hitler, having been temporarily blinded by gas in the last months of WWI, seems to have decided against chemical warfare based on that experience. Knowing about Bari might have changed his mind [He also forbade German ground units to use ‘false flag’ tactics for some reason].
You’d think that Hitler would have used gas towards the end, especially on the Russian Front. I guess it’s the first case of the MAD theory in action.
Hi PzLdr. I was reading about this in Day of Battle the continuation of Army at Dawn and it was the first I had heard of it. Of course I understand why nothing could be said but I wish the medical folks could have recognized it for those there that day. Sad.
