    Ep: 33: A History Of Bioweapons The 1900s, World War 1 & The German Sabotage Network: Part 3

    Ep: 33: A History Of Bioweapons The 1900s, World War 1 & The German Sabotage Network: Part 3

    This is episode 33 of The Truth Tank.


    On this episode, We will be continuing our epic look into the Dark and Murky World of Bioweapons. It is now the 1900s and The Biological Warfare is becoming increasingly more advanced. The Worlds Leaders are able invest more time and resources into the research in finding new ways of spreading potential pathogens and how they can be used to kill one another. With the Advancements in Microbiology, it has made it easier to pick and choose which pathogens and how they can be  to be used during war. 


    During the early 20th century, the Worlds Leaders met for a series of talks which outlined the acceptable use of weapons and conduct in Modern Warfare. Bioweapons and other forms of Warfare that are considered inhumane are outlined in the Hague & Geneva conventions, that was until the outbreak of World War 1.


    Germany lead the way in Modern Biological Warfare use in the 20th Century. World War 1 provided the perfect cover and The German War Department were able to hatch a diabolical plan to covertly attack the Neutral United States. Anton Dilger, A German-American Physician with a Degree in Microbiology, unleashed a devastating strike against Horses, Donkeys & Mules, infecting them with Dilger’s Bio-Agents while waiting to be transported from depots and ports of the Eastern US to the battlefields of Europe. 


    The US produced munitions and sent out supples for Britain and the Allies. All the while Dilger and German agents wrecked havoc on dockyards up and down the East Coast in what would become the first major act of Terrorism in the US. An Irish-American Cop by the name of Tom Tunney and his Bomb Squad turned the tide in this cat and mouse game of sabotage.

    This is episode 32 of The TruthTank.


    On this episode we will be continuing our deep dive into the world of Bioweapons. It is now the 1800’s, and besides the accidental spreading of diseases between Polynesian and Pacific Islander cultures through contact with Europeans, the 19th century was pretty quiet on the Bioweapon front until a history defining conflict towards the later part of the century and that was The American Civil War. 


    The use of Biological components in warfare was rampant in during The Civil War, both the North and the South used Bioweapons against one another in the hopes that germs and diseases would give them the advantage over the enemy. We will look at how both the North and South used differing and cunning strategies to turn the tide of the war.


    The North restricted the Souths access to medical supplies through the Union Blockade aka the Anaconda Plan. While The South Tried to spread disease to the North in the diabolical Yellow Fever Plot masterminded by the brilliant but mad Dr. Blackburn. Also looked at will be the restriction of the life saving medication Quinine and how the South struggled to find a substitute when supplies run low due to the Unions Blockade of the South.
