"Tim Cook uses diaries, letters, reminiscences, published memoirs, and the official archival record to illustrate vividly the grim reality of gas warfare for the average trench soldier. In response, the Canadian Corps had to develop a disciplined anti-gas doctrine, a process that Cook describes in full."
