ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the use of mustard gas during World War I. German artillery near Ypres received the first mustard shells, identified by their yellow Lorraine crosses, in July 1917. Mustard gas is dangerously insidious, a volatile oil, the fumes of which are but faintly malodorous and quickly desensitize the olfactory system. Of the war's 29.5 million casualties, gas caused 1.3 million.
