Chemicals were the most feared weapon of World War One for a good reason, many soldiers froze or turned and ran in terror when they saw evidence of gas because those caught in it without a proper gas mask died a slow and painful death.The morale of an army while it is intangible, is extremely important, and nothing could destroy it like chemical weapons. Sometimes the main goal behind a gas attack wasn’t even physical harm, often it was simply to terrorize the enemy or even hide an infantry or some other kind of assault. Soldiers that didn’t die from exposure to gas were usually so adversely affected they could no longer perform basic tasks, let alone fight a battle. Mustard gas, for example, is one of World War One’s most famous and feared weapons, yet it rarely killed those exposed to it. It did, however, often cause blindness, lifelong respiratory problems, and severe burns on the skin that could easily lead to cancer down the road.

While some may argue that these children should be responsible for the mass killings of innocent people, they forget that they are dependent on their commanders. Their commanders constantly supply them with food, money, and drugs, making them rely more and more on their commanders for these supplies. Although these children did kill many people, they were unaware of their actions when ordered to commit this crime therefore should not be held accountable. Certainly it could be said that children enlisted in the military want to avenge the death of loved ones; while this is a good point, it fails to account for how clueless these children were about soldier life. These child soldiers think that being enlisted will lead to a more secure life with shelter and food, unfortunately they do not realize what they have to do in order to receive that kind of life.
