    The results of their usage. That's why they didn't go for this option.

    Even their diabolical maniac leader knew the horrendous effect that had on forces, often the ones who released them after the wind changed directions because he had been in the trenches himself during ww1.  

    That said, they did use them against their own civilian prisoners during their mass murder of so many.

    Biological weapons are even worse than chemical weapons, and its very possible we have been involved in biological warfare today.  Some believe Covid was released as a biological weapon to create social upheaval around the world as other nations vie to to hold global supremacy.  Look at western civilization today and its quite conceivable that such reactions and results were as hoped.

    Last year we were all told that Covid came from bats and that was that. now we find out that we don't now for sure where it came from and china will not let other nations  experts near the places they insist it came from. So we don't know for sure where its from or if it was released by humans or not.

    They learned in WW1 that they were uncontrollable once they were released.

    I'd say that a bit of chemistry went into developing and mass producing horrifying weapons like firebombs, flamethrowers, and high explosives, wouldn't you?  I would also say that biological weapons weren't even necessary to develop or deploy, since the majority of deaths for soldiers in the field was due to disease anyway, as has been the case for every conflict in history.

    The Nazis' decision to avoid the use of chemical weapons on the battlefield has been variously attributed to a lack of technical ability in the German chemical weapons program and fears that the Allies would retaliate with their own chemical weapons.

    Hitler was Gassed in WW1 in 1939 he decreed that the Germans would NOT be the First to use Poisons or Gasses in the Field

    He kept his word and never gassed men Fighting in the Field

    The Nazis Developed Sarin Gas During WWII, But Hitler Was Afraid to Use It Even as his Nazi regime was exterminating millions in the gas chambers, Adolf Hitler resisted calls to use the deadly nerve agent against his military adversaries.

    First Blood WW2 By the Germans Killing Civilians Hitler Bombed the UK First and Killed civilians working in the shipyard

    The Battle of the River Forth was an air battle on 16 October 1939 between Supermarine Spitfires from No. 602 and No. 603 Squadrons of the Royal Air Force and Junkers Ju 88 bombers of 1. Gruppe Kampfgeschwader 30.

    It resulted when twelve Ju 88s attacked Rosyth naval base at the Firth of Forth. The raid was the first German air raid on Britain during World War II.

    When Britain declared war on Germany on 3 September 1939, some feared Germany would immediately embark on a devastating aerial bombing campaign against British cities. Adolf Hitler still hoped an all-out war with Britain might be avoided if a compromise could be reached. Britain, however, showed no inclination to compromise, and it was decided bombing should commence. Hitler remained anxious the attacks should not antagonise the British too much and so the ‘rules of engagement’ were designed to avoid civilian casualties.

    In its past, threats to Britain were always perceived as coming from the east, and for many years there had been major Royal Navy bases sited to allow its warships access to the North Sea, including  Rosyth, on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth.

    These were the first shots fired in the air war over Britain.

    Over the course of the rest of the morning, Spitfires from 602 Squadron continued to be scrambled to try, unsuccessfully, to intercept unknown intruders, to no effect. By lunchtime, all aircraft were back on the ground with one of 602's sections at Coastal Command station Leuchars, just north of St Andrews. It had been vectored as far north as Peterhead and being low on fuel, decided to land there to refuel and have lunch.

    Unknown to the RAF, the German aircraft had radioed information about the weather conditions over the Forth and, crucially, the ships they had observed (which they believed included the battlecruiser Hood). At Westerland, 12 bombers waited to learn whether conditions would allow them to mount an attack, the first on the British homeland

    we only Bombed berlin AFTER HITLER BOMBED LONDON

    and Dresden was a Ligetmate target 127 factories making Guns ammunition Torpedos Bombsights etc using 50,000 civilians but we only killed 22,500 according to the German Police

    the first bombs to drop on London landed in the early hours of 22 August 1940, affecting Harrow and Wealdstone within the London Civil Defence Area).

    These caused damage to two cinemas, a dance hall, bank and houses, but nobody was killed. A further strike on 24 August killed nine people and prompted retaliatory attacks on Berlin.

    The first RAF raid on Berlin took place on the night of 25 August 1940 so as you can see the Nazis Bombed Civilians First and after Rotterdam where it was all civilians Bombed by the nazi the RAF

    the British government renounced the deliberate bombing of civilian property, outside combat zones, as a military tactic.

    This policy was abandoned on 15 May 1940, two days after the German air attack on Rotterdam, when the RAF was given permission to attack targets in the Ruhr, including oil plants and other civilian industrial targets that aided the German war effort
