Oxford & the Great War: Science and the War

The Great War was a catalyst for supercharged progress in the sciences, from signals to poison gas. Dr Liz Bruton, Byrne-Bussey Marconi Fellow at the Bodleian Library, discusses science in the war, and the ethical issues which still confront scientists today.
