In six weeks during April and May 1915, as World War I escalated, Germany forever altered the way war would be fought. On April 22, at Ypres, German canisters spewed poison gas at French and Canadian soldiers in their trenches; on May 7, the German submarine U-20, without warning, torpedoed the passenger liner Lusitania, killing 1,198 civilians; and on May 31, a German Zeppelin began the first aerial bombardment of London and its inhabitants.

Would you listen to A Higher Form of Killing again? Why?

Restarted after I finished it.

What did you like best about this story?

Devastating research. If you want primary sources, as I did, you will find them here. It also highlights WWI researchers must travel to Britain to find the material.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Technology Changes War
