https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZahHTxDZag The Handbook of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents is an expensive book, and it goes into a lot of detail – basically it is used as a text in various college level WMD classes. There is a lot of half information about dealing with chemical and biological agents, and a lot of people buying equipment to protect their families without access to effective information to ensure they are spending their money of the right equipment. You cannot seem to read a website about Chem-Bio without some rehash of the smells of certain chemical agents, but if you smell newly mowed

While not what I was expecting, I am glad I purchased this book, as it gives information on the techniques of

This 1854 Handbook of Chemistry is an old reference, but that does not make it useless.  In my collection of electronic reference material I have stockpiled a lot of old chemistry texts.  It was chemistry that fueled our Industrial revolution, if you know science then you can do just about anything. I have about 100 of these old Chemistry books that I will be sharing over time.  It is not a cool as the gun stuff, or as immediately usable as some of the cooking or building pdfs, but if we ever have a true TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The
