Synopsis

From fear of sabotage on the London Underground to the first anthrax bomb and massive outdoor tests, Britain and Biological Warfare tells the largely untold history of biological weapons research and policy in the UK. Drawing on recently declassified documents, this book charts the secret history of germ warfare policy from the 1930s to the mid-1960s. Britain and Biological Warfare explores the role of independent advisors in shaping one of the most significant biological warfare research programmes in history.
