This riveting narrative traces Americas own covert biological weapons program from its origins in World War II to its abrupt cancellation in 1969. In light of Americas increasing surveillance and condemnation of foreign biological weapons programs, this exposé of Americas own dangerous Cold War secret is both fascinating and shocking. The project, at its peak, employed 5,000 people and tested pathogens on 2,000 live human volunteers- conducted open-air tests on American soil- sprayed our cities with bacterial aerosols- and stockpiled millions of bacterial bombs for instant deployment. Yet, surprisingly, almost nothing has been published about this project until now. This is the first book to expose the true story of Americas secret program to create biological weapons of mass destruction.
