(0)

From The Royal Institution.

Dan Kaszeta uncovers the development and propagation of nerve agents, the world’s deadliest means of chemical warfare.

Dan Kaszeta’s book “Toxic” is available now: https://geni.us/z4N8f

From their 1930s invention to the 2018 Novichok attack in Britain, Dan Kaszeta uncovers nerve agents’ gradual spread across the world, despite international arms control efforts. They’ve been deployed in the Iran–Iraq War, by terrorists in Japan, in the Syrian Civil War, and by assassins in Malaysia and Salisbury―always with bitter consequences.

Dan has decades of experience in protecting against chemical and biological weapons, and has held positions in the US Army, the White House Military Office, the US Secret Service and private industry.
