TN 350 fact-filled pages of I Pentagon jargon which runs the gamut from GB, VX and BZ to CN, 3, 4-D and HD the former press secretary to U.S. presidential hopeful, Senator Eugene McCarthy, says already the U.S. is using gas (non-lethal variety, that is) from Kontum in Vietnam to Chicago in Illinois.

Crisply written, brilliantly documented and chilling in the questions it poses, this book indicts not only America — but casts a sidelong and accusing eye at Russia, England, Canada, Communist China, Nationalist China, West Germany, Poland, Sweden, Spain, Egypt, Cuba, Israel and South Africa.
Ban the bomb marchers used to shout "one flash and you're ash." Perhaps future protesters will be shouting "one bug and you're dug."
