The Soviet Biological Weapons Program: a history

Priekinis viršelis
Harvard University Press, 2012-06-29 - 800 psl.
This is the first attempt to understand the full scope of the USSR’s offensive biological weapons research, from inception in the 1920s. Gorbachev tried to end the program, but the U.S. and U.K. never obtained clear evidence that he succeeded, raising the question whether the means for waging biological warfare could be present in Russia today.
