'According to Frank J. Dinan, a distinguished professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York State, a scientist close to Hitler exaggerated the Allies' capability of hitting back with their own chemical weapons, which caused the Fuhrer to rethink his plans.'

I have always wondered why the Nazi's did not use nerve gas on a widespread scale particularly when it became apparent that they had no chance of winning the war unless they did something drastic to turn the tide.

According to this Daily Mail article Hitler was told that the Allies held the same technology by Otto Ambros a high ranking Nazi scientist, although this appears to not be true according to research carried out.

Can anybody add anything to this topic? Anybody have further knowledge of what held the Nazis back from using nerve gas in the Second World War?

I have to admit my thoughts on this topic have always been that all sides adopted a MAD position concerning the use of such weapons.

My understanding is Hitlers General's Knew the Third Reich was done, they also knew that launching Gas on Allied Forces, or Allied Civilian Populations, there country would never make it out alive.... So they prevented it.

It's often stated that Hitler's own experiences of gas attack in WW1 played a part in the lack of deployed chemical weapons in WW2. Maybe, maybe not. The Allies did indeed have stocks of chemical weapons in-theatre in case Germany did unleash theirs, thereby allowing for a rapid retaliation. There's a notable incident where an undisclosed shipment of Allied mustard gas was caught up in an air-raid in Bari, which killed and injured many due to its potency and the classified nature of the cargo meaning no one knew they were meant to be treating gas burns etc.
