    Needs some editing

    Lots of information, but presented in a very jumbled way. And, surprisingly for Jane's. some of it is wrong. Liquid phosgene is NOT harmless, despite what this book says - splash some in your spare eye and watch as it opacifies, if you need to test this out. There is some good stuff, especially in the BW sections, but you had better know your way around CBW before you buy this book so you can sort the good from the bad.
