"Nerve Gas" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following report on the possible German use of nerve gas in WWII was originally published in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 1, June 18, 1942.

Unconfirmed reports from various sources describe the effects of a so-called "Nerve Gas" said to have been used by the Germans in Russia.

(C.W.S. COMMENT: American chemists do not know of any agent which it is practicable to make having the characteristics ascribed to "Nerve Gas." However, because of the persistent rumors that a gas of this type exists, investigations along this line are being continued.)
