- Both the USA and Great Britain planned and meant to use
gas during WWII. Germany as a consequence of the Versailles dictate of
1919, was forbidden to produce and import any kind of gas or liquids that
could be used to produce such gasses, Article 171.
- The Reich kept strictly to the requirement of the Versailles
dictate regarding chemical warfare equipment. Even the Weimar Republic
kept to the dictate. During the Sea Disarmament Conference, 1921/22, in
Washington, the following nations did not agree to gas or any chemical
weapons being dangerous weapons: USA, England, France, Japan and Italy.
The use of chemical weapons were discussed, but without an agreement being
- In June 1925 in Geneva the question was once again discussed,
one reached the so-called Geneva Gas-War Protocol. Out of the 44 nations
attending the Geneva conference 38 had, by the end of 1935, signed the
protocol. 21 nations took reservation, 17 were reluctant. By the end of
1935, 28 nations had ratified the convention. But 10 refused, among those
were USA, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Luxemburg, and various nations in South
America. The Reich signed without any reservations.
- During WWI the American company under leadership of General
Amos A Fries (1), developed weapon based on chemicals. The General was
manager of "Chemical Warfare Service". After 1919 General Amos
A Fries wrote a lot of articles claiming chemical weapons were the solution
to new wars. Chemical weapons were human, and chemical weapons must be
looked upon as blessing in wars. During the early negotiations leading
up to the Hague conference in 1899, the use of gas was an important topic.
The USA was for use of toxic gas and that chemical weapons were human.
- At the start of WWII both sides had poisonous shells.
Bombs with poison was not at hand in Germany. (2) "The use of gas
was strictly forbidden in the Wehrmacht! Even the use of gas as answer
to such bombs used against Germany needed Hitler's clearing. ... No use
of chemical weapons could be used without Hitler's approval. Such weapons
should only be stored inside Germany." (3) During the war Hitler
refused many proposals by the General Staff to use poisonous gas against
partisans on the Eastern Front (4). Hitler said "No!" He did
not want such weapons used by the German Army at any front.
- Incident in Poland
- The first incident involving poisonous gas in WWII occurred
on the evening of Friday, September 8, 1939 in the village of Jaslo in
the south of Poland. (5) Polish troops had tried to blow up a railway
bridge over the river Jasiolka. The Poles had used a chemical bomb(6)
- As German soldiers from 1. Gebirges-Pionere.Battalion
82 (a battalion of engineer infantry) came to clear the bridge it exploded.
The engineer soldiers found the Poles had used a chemical explosive -
but that explosive had not exploded - as it exploded 14 solders became
mustard gas victims, two of the soldiers died.
- An investigation by the German High Command explained
that they did not have conventional explosives that used poison gas mines.
The LOST (6) mines were, as the German High Command investigation revealed,
fabricated in England. (7) The Germans did not take revenge on the Polish
- Churchill's plans of using poison gas
- In 1940 England had plans to use poisonous gas should
Germany start an invasion of England. Sir john Dill, Chief of the British
Empire General Staff, tried hard in a memorandum of June 18, 1940 to
influence Churchill, even though neither Germany nor Italy had chemical
weapons,, to start using such weapons.(8) On June 30, 1940 Prime Minister
Churchill ordered General Ismay to prepare for use of chemical weapons.
He said: "It is my intention not to wait too long before England
shall use chemical weapons." (9) In his book on the war and esspecially
regarding chemical warfare Günther W Gellermann writes: "Churchill
has ready to use chemical weapons should Germany start an invation of
England, even though such weapons could harm the British(10)." According
to Gellermann this shows how callous Churchill was towards the people
- In April 1942, Churchill offered Stalin 1,000 tons of
mustard gas. Stalin however did not want the gas, he wanted 5,000 tons
of Chlorine (11), which he would use to produce his own chemical weapons.
- On May 10, 1942 Churchill declared in a radio-speech
that the reason for Germany's advances in Russia was because they used
chemical weapons. Furthermore, he said: "We know the Huns, which
is the reason why we are keeping up our afford and why we are building
up our storage of chemical weapons. I would say that should Germany again
attack our ally, Soviet, with more chemical weapons, then we will start
using such gas in our attacks on German cities and towns." (12)
- The Gas-Catastrophe in Bari (you will find what USA said
about this at the end of the article)
- For years the allies kept a strict secret around what
happened in Bari in December of 1943. (13)
- The allies did not tell the Italian authorities that
one of the American merchant ships had mustard gas on board. Had they
told, many civilian Italians could have been saved. I would even say that
many allied soldiers could have been saved had the Americans had enough
equipment and medicine at hand to treat mustard gas victims.
- The US merchant Ship John Harvey, 10617 BRT, came on
November 28, 1943, her skipper was Captain Edwin F Knowles from Baltimore,
Maryland. The ship had 540 tons (14) of mustard gas on board. Only seven
US soldiers and their commanding officer, Lieutenant Howard Beckström
knew about the mustard gas while none of the crew or the ship captain
- On December 2, 1943 the German Luftwaffen with JU 88-bombers
attacked the 30 US-transport ships in Bari. The Germans sank 17 ships
and damaged 8 more (15). This was almost a Pearl Harbor in the Mediterranean.
During the bomb attack the ship John Harvey caught fire, exploded and
sank. In the explosion the mustard gas was set free. All those who knew
about the mustard gas died. USA did not tell about the gas onboard the
John Harvey (16) which led to the poisoning of 328 soldiers and sailors
of whom 96 died. Even the number of civilians that died due to mustard
gad poisonings was kept quiet. The allies said the dead either died from
burning or bronchitis or lung problems(17). Churchill ordered British
medical personnel not to tell what the reason was.(18) First in 1974 did
English documents come to light which told the reason.
- Crimes by Anglo-American
- The German scientist Fritz Hahn found in an archive in
Washington DC plans (19) showing that USA planned a gas-war against Germany.
According to the US-plans they should start a 15 day operation "using
gas bombs after the Axis-Countries have started the bombing". (With
the knowledge we have today such a propaganda would have been easy to
fabricate. (RJH) The attacks on Germany should come from Foggia in Italy
and England. 30 German cities and towns should be drowned in mustard gas
and/or by use of Carbonylchlorid, COCl. The result of this operation was
calculated to 5.6 million dead and 12 million very sick Germans - so sick
they would need medical attention for a long time. German cities like
Munich, Augsburg, Stuttgart and Karlsruhe were the main targets of the
plan. Carbonylchlorid, COCl. This was one of the points in the plan, No
4. Foggio was not far away from Bari. Pr squar Mile (European) or 6.2
statute miles. The Americans meant to use 100 air planes with 500 pound
Carbonylchlorid, each. Totally the Americans meant to drop 280,000,000
Lb poisonous gas over Germany. (20)
- It was first in 1984 when the world learn the truth about
English plans regarding using poisonous gas over Germany. The BBC reporter
Robert Harris (21) found documents regarding the use of biological weapons
against Germany in WWII. These document clearly show what England's war-time
minister wanted to do. According to these documents, the chief of the
British high command, General Hastings Lionel, quoted Churchill: "I
want a cold blooded war effort to be started and the use of poisonous
gas ... When we start this I do want everybody to go for it with all they
got. I want sound people to start the planning and not allow any psalm-singer
to stop us from what we are about to do." . (22) Churchill also said:
"We can bomb the cities along the Rhein and many other cities and
towns so hard sprinkled with gas that most of the people will have to
have medical care for the rest of their lives. And we will do this by
using poisonous gas." (23) Churchill had no moral scruples when he
gave his instructions.
- According to Japanese historian, Yoshiaki Yoshimi (24)
who found proofs of this in a archive in Maryland USA, asked:. Did the
Amercans in the last days of WWII use chemical weapons against Japan?
The use of chemical weapons should kill about 200,000 Japanese.

- One of the most disastrous bombing attack against allied
ships during the entire war took place at Bari, Italy, on December 2,
1943. This port was in the British theatre of operations, but several
American [merchant] ships with [U.S. Navy] Armed Guards aboard were at
Bari on that fateful day [when a German air raid occurred]. When the last
bomb had fallen, and the last ship exploded, and the large fires had
run their course, 17 ships had been sunk and six damaged. There were five
United States ships sunk and one damaged. One other United States ship
came through unscathed.
