Microbes as Weapons

Lecture no. 20 from the course: Mysteries of the Microscopic World

Microbes as Weapons

Taught by Professor Bruce E. Fleury | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Investigate the history of microbes as weapons, which dates to the practice of catapulting disease-infected corpses into enemy strongholds. Germ warfare was even used during the American Revolutionary War, but it didn’t reach maturity until World War II with Unit 731, the notorious project run by the Japanese.
