The Best Defense

Another powerful line from 'Six Weeks'

From my current reading: British Capt. Alan Hanbury-Sparrow, who served in World War I, called chemical weapons "the Devil's breath." (That would be a great title for a history of chlorine and mustard gas.) Soldiers wearing gas masks, he wrote, looked like "imbecile frogs" -- I guess especially in the green haze of chlorine.
