Master Mind: The Rise and Fall of Fritz Haber, the Nobel Laureate Who Launched the Age of Chemical Warfare by Daniel Charles ISBN: 0060562722 Published byEcco on August 2nd 2005 Pages: 336
Len's Summary: Haber won the Nobel Prize for his work to extract nitrogen from the atmosphere and convert it into fertilizer. Though almost forgotten today, he was the chemical genius behind German war-time explosives production and the initiation of poison gas warfare in April 1915. Imperial Germany, blockaded by the Royal Navy, desperately needed his inventions in order to survive an industrialized conflict. Reviewed by Martin Sieff in the October St. Mihiel Trip-Wire. The author is a science correspondent for NPR.
On Saturday March 12 the WW1HA hosted its first ever online quiz night. This was a fun way to get geographically distant members together virtually. We are considering doing this a few times a year.
The next issue of World War One Illustrated (WWOI) will be printed shortly. Members/subscribers should receive their printed issue in the next month or so.
Members are encouraged to participate in the monthly online seminars hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter; and we plan to announce a gathering of WW1HA members at the National World War I Museum’s Fall 2022 symposium. Stay tuned!
