World renowned chemical weapons expert and former UN weapons biological inspector in Iraq Jonathan Tucker’s book about the use of chemical and biological warfare in the 20th century. "War of Nerves" highlights the savagery of toxic gasses in WWI and WWII, but it is it’s focus on the use of chemical and biological weapons in the latter half of the 20th century is what The Washington Post and Publishers Weekly have been talking about. Specifically when it comes to the use of toxic gasses by Soviet client states against minority groups such as the Kurds in Iraq, by terrorists in Tokyo subway attack in 1995, and in war as was the case in 1962 when Egypt used nerve gas against Yemen. Not just a history book, "War of Nerves" presents contrasting arguments from both sides of the spectrum about the War on Terror and WMDs in Iraq.
