‘Gas! GAS! Quick, boys! — An ecstasy of fumbling
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time’
Chemical warfare looms large in our imagination of the First World War. But how was gas experienced on the Western Front and beyond? Did the soldiers of other combatant powers have different experiences? What were the longer-term legacies of these experiences, and are they still relevant today?
These questions and more will be explored in this one-day conference, organised in partnership with the Western Front Association.
