This Handbook traces the Chemical Equipment designs and defensive chemical warfare, fully covered and updated to bring the chemical engineer into the 21st century. This Handbook is an excellent guide to the selection and design of a wide range of chemical process equipment. The Chemical Warfare Service was considered as more or less a necessary nuisance. The movement toward general national preparedness that got under way in the late 1930’s led to an increase in the stock levels of certain chemical warfare items. Included in 1938 Educational Order legislation providing for a build-up of a limited number of Army items was the gas mask. Later legislation and War Department directives enabled the Chemical Warfare Service to make still further preparations for gas warfare, offensive and defensive. These activities, continued throughout the war years, helped to deter the enemy from initiating gas warfare. During World War II, in addition to discharging its responsibility for gas warfare, the Chemical Warfare Service carried out a number of other chemical warfare missions for which it had little or no preparation in the prewar years. The service was also assigned a biological warfare mission.
