To the Editor: The review1
of our book by Drs Wilde and Johnson misrepresents the science and history
of biological warfare (BW) during the Korean War era. They fail to cite studies
and original sources that might have changed their conclusions about "experiments
that do not seem logical, based on the level of knowledge that existed in
1950 as well as today."
