Book Review of Greek Fire, Poison Arrows & Scorpion Bombs: Biological and Chemical Warfare in the Ancient World Biological and chemical warfare are generally thought of as modern inventions. Most histories trace them back to first world war, with perhaps a mention of Greek Fire thrown in an as afterthought. The historian Adrienne Mayor explores the biological and chemical warfare of the ancient world.

Her research looks at ancient "folk science" precursors, alternatives, and parallels to modern scientific methods.

In Feburary 1938, Guderian was promoted to lieutenant general and the following month was involved in the occupation of Austria. Later that year Adolf Hitler appointed Guderian to the new post of Chief of Mobile Troops. However Guderian had difficulty explaining to his senior officers about the importance of tank warfare in any future conflict. Franz Halder, the Chief of General Staff told Guderian that the infantry would always be very important in any future war. Guderian led the attack on Poland in September 1939 and his success created controversy throughout the world.
At the start of the war in September 1939 the codebreakers returned to Bletchey Park to begin their war-winning work in earnest. The Poles had broken Enigma in 1932, when the encoding machine was undergoing trials with the German Army. But when the Poles broke Enigma, the cipher altered only once every few months. With the advent of war, it changed at least once a day, giving 159 million million million possible settings to choose from. The Poles decided to inform the British in July 1939 once they needed help to break Enigma and with invasion of Poland imminent.. As more and more people arrived to join the codebreaking operations, the various sections began to move into large pre-fabricated wooden huts set up on the lawns of the Park.
They then need to address the attraction of Hitler and the Nazis for the German people: promises made; Nazi organization; Nazi policies; Hitler’s personality, oratory etc. ; Nazi propaganda. The concluding date is the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor in January 1933, so take care to ensure that all material credited is before that date. [17+ marks] for in-depth analysis and insight.

The Clausewitz’s CoG To better understand contemporary theories of CoG, one must first be grounded in the original theory of CoG, commonly attributed to Carl von Clausewitz. Following analogies of physics and using personal observations and experiences Clausewitz drew his theory of CoG (Echevarria II, 2007 p. 179). In On War, he defines CoG as ‘…the hub of all power and movement, on which everything depends… the point against which all our energies should be directed…’ (Clausewitz, 1989 pp. 595-596). It could be argued that Clausewitz as claiming that, ‘the first task… in planning for a war is to identify the enemy’s centre of gravity…’ recognized the CoG’s vital role in campaign planning (Clausewitz, 1989 p. 619).
