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