Keen As Mustard:Secret Australian Chemical Warfare Experiments

A book telling the shocking tale of World War II Australian servicemen being used as mustard gas guinea-pigs by Britain and the US with Australian Government approval. The book Keen as Mustard has been written by Walkley award-winning journalist Associate Professor Bridget Goodwin, who teaches film and television in Bond's School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Commenting on her book, Professor Goodwin said the research for it began when she was working as a senior reporter in Melbourne for ABC TV's 7.30 Report in 1987. The documentary film, Keen As Mustard, was screened on ABC TV at 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday 21 April 1998.  Professor Goodwin said the book evolved out of her need to have material declassified, a task which took several years, but a great deal of material in central files was still under wraps. This included references to Australian soldiers who died in mustard gas experiments.
