In HistorySimulation.com's World War One Simulation, Germany, France and Great Britain all develop Poison Gas and have the option of using it in battle. Poison gas was extremely unpredictable and needed perfect conditions to even have a limited effect. Tear Gas, Chlorine Gas and Mustard Gas were developed during the war. http://www.historysimulation.com/WorldWarI.html #WWI #SSchat #USHistory #WorldHistory #HistoryTeacher #history
