Biological warfare efforts in World War I are described by Mark Wheelis, in the chapter "Biological Sabotage in World War I," in Biological and Toxin Weapons: Research, Development and the Use from the Middle Ages to 1945 (New York: Oxford University Press, 1999). Although the World Wide Web is notoriously suspect as a source of information, the Web site "Insects, Disease and History,", edited by Drs. Gary Miller and Robert Peterson, is a first-rate source of historically and entomologically credible information, including the entry by David Tschanz on "Typhus Fever on the Eastern Front in World War I."
