"...explores the historical background and early development which has led to the creation of these deadly weapons of 20th century conf lict. (Gander) proceeds to examine in considerable depth, with special reference to NATO and Warsaw Pact forces, the delivery systems and hardware employed, the various forms of nuclear device, war chemicals and biological agents and their use in action. Protective measures available to the world's armed forces and methods of detection are also examined. With the aid of over 100 illustrations and line drawings, the book presents an objective overview of a subject which is frequently misrepresented by the mass-media and a seemingly universal ignorance of the plain facts. This publication will go some way towards redressing this imbalance." Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, a few very tiny dents on rear panel. NF/VG+
