armies have always used technology to develop new methods of warfare but world war one saw a step change in the level of collaboration between scientists and the military. when the kaiser vilhelm institute for physical chemistry opened in the garland suburb of dahlan and october 19th 12 its 1st director was fritz cobbler. it scientists have since $133.00 nobel prizes but harbor is infamous for having invented chemical warfare because of his development of poisonous gas in the. harbor himself won a nobel prize for chemistry in 1918 for his synthesizing of ammonium much food production depends today on harbors method for producing fertilizer but the impact
3:22 pm
of the chemical weaponry developed from harbors chlorine gas. as being devastating . were 1st conscripted into the french army in 1911. they found themselves fighting as part of a french occupying force in morocco and march 19th 12. then they were called on to fight fellow muslims on a far greater scale. than the ottomans join the warren of ember $914.00 it dawned on the chin is even conscripts they might now be ordered to fight turks syrians iraqis lebanese and palestinians. this deeply offended there are old sensibilities. and not this apprehension quickly turned to insubordination. here at the gymnasium
3:23 pm
board of bizarre that there was a rebellion in november 1914 by troops being sent by the french to europe the chin is eons refused to board boats bound for mark same as the hand of one but that if he had been the one but of the verb are the. rude thought it had vested over the head it is a bit of it it might have do with a ticket as there's a democrat in that and i'm the head that has a guinea where the shore all behavior and how to cut it off got it you don't see it then he have assuredly anyway not enough to really benefit the come about them or no neck i think our team are scary a laid up the whatever they're short all ashore all well yes but i've been with him but that will have to add that up with a war i love him a bad one and a son who had a misdemeanor left and whether my lad but i link it here at the i love of money i know that and he did media but that look at it it happened you hired and money and my neck and orlando martin must be me. a little you if you do not only know what do

915 and indian regiment in singapore rebelled because they thought the british were sending them to fight the old. you have a number of reports of of mostly indian muslim soldiers being quite unhappy about being sent to fight the holy fire really you know being sent to fight the ottoman empire there's one instance of an entire battalion refusing to board the ship to go but basically basically the most dramatic thing in what must have been terrifying to the english and very frightening is that in singapore the 5th light infantry which is composed of muslims actually stop opened fire on the english officers and soldiers and something like 80 plus they killed 80 plus englishman. and the reprisals are very harsh and they're arrested rounded up you know and that musta really scared the english officers in command because the idea that you know when you have hundreds of thousands of indian soldiers if that kind of thing takes
3:27 pm
off it's going to be a big problem so so where there are mutinies they're really put down. harshly but it's not only the muslims because what's happening in india is you also have indian nationalists of all religions who want the british to go. coming up opposition to conscription and french colonial occupation fuels more of the rest engine is a. man like me it's more descendants of north african war veterans and here is their personal stories. and how our troops contributed to one of the allies most serious defeats of the war at the litani. then the stuff come out as a result of coming up to shoot his order i do not order you to fight for you to die .
