Recognized as one of Germany’s leading experts on CBRN defense, Col. (ret.) Kühl has drawn from his broad military and defense experience to create a comprehensive guide to the current state of defense against weapons of mass destruction. Still confronted with enduring threats and as novel perils emerge, contemporary security priorities are increasingly challenged or become even outdated.
Regional powers, rogue states, terrorists, and other perpetrators continue creating own CBRN capabilities, or otherwise attempt acquiring such weapons. Defense systems need to stay on top of these developments – but more importantly, they need to be able to anticipate future trends.
In this book, Kühl provides not only essential information for understanding and impact of related science, technology and the potential use of CBRN weapons, but also some of the basic resources to contribute to maintaining or regaining an effective line of defense.
