comment Why did Hitler not order the use of poison gas in combat?
i've seen this argued before but never understood how this squares with every indication (e.g. the "Nero decree" germanhistorydocs.ghi-dc.org/sub_document.cfm?document_id=1590) that Hitler and many leading nazis by 1944/5 cared not a jot whether Germany and all Germans were destroyed at the end
