For just over 75 years, the Establishments at Porton Down have been engaged in providing protective measures for British Service personnel - and often British civilians - against chemical, and more recently biological, warfare. Its activities have up until now been little-known, often misunderstood and often maligned. This book presents the history of Porton Down with as much detail as possible. It examines the origins of the establishment in World War II and the changing role and nature of activity there in the 1920s, 1930s and World War II and afterwards.
