From the early 1990s, allegations that servicemen had been duped into taking part in trials with toxic agents at top-secret Allied research facilities throughout the twentieth century featured with ever greater frequency in the media. In Britain, a whole army of over 21,000 soldiers had participated in secret experiments between 1939 and 1989. Some remembered their stay as harmless, but there were many for whom the experience had been all but pleasant, sometimes harmful, and in isolated cases deadly.

  1. Steven Oliver Post author

    Andy Kardasz HYMS: This is a book that I would recommend. It deals with the history of chemical and biological weapons research involving experiments on humans by the US, UK and Canada in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Particularly interesting is the fact that this research was undertaken on human subjects in despite the fact that both the Nuremburg and Helsinki codes were in force, and the subjects were mislead into the true purpose of the research.
