Abstract:

The present study is concerned with the developing plans for the use of gas by the American Army in the Meuse-Argonne campaign. When the American Army in the arrived in France all the important war gases anad the principal means for projecting them had already been devised. Basic gas defense doctrine as well as individual and collective protective measures against gas attack had become fairly well established and standardized. The principal innovations in gas warfare in 1918 were in the development of new tactical uses of gas, and they were largely of German origin.
