Later, CWs were used between Japan and China during 1937 to 1945. The Japanese attacked Chinese troops with mustard gas and lewisite. The Japanese, in addition to their biological program, had an extensive CWs program and were producing agent and munitions in large quantities by the late 1930s. WORLD WAR II Despite the storing and stockpiling of CWs by the great powers engaged in World War II (WWII), these fatal weapons were not practically used (except small examples) during WWII (probably because of the fear of massive retaliatory use of CWs).

THE PERIOD AFTER WORLD WAR II AND THE COLD WAR At the end of WWII, many Allied nations seized the CWs. Most of the CW manufacturing plants in Germany were taken over and moved to new sites in Russia, such as the military area of Shikhany. This “takeover” prompted other states to begin even more research of CWs. Despite the Allies’ own research into CWs, very important technologies and “know-how” were obtained from Nazi Germany for both the United States and the former Soviet Union. The interest in CW technology was probably one reason for the change of the future border: according to Churchill’s history of WWII, the proposed future boundary between Poland and Germany had been primarily agreed to consist, in part, of the Oder River flowing to the Baltic Sea, and its tributary, the Neisse River.
