Issue Date: Nov-2010
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: John Johnson was a distinguished American chemist who had participated in the Alsos mission in Italy in 1943 during the Second World War. He was assigned the task of interviewing Italian scientists to trace out something about the nuclear research in Germany. For this he was accompanied near the battlefront by Lt. Col. Boris Pash who holstered a .45 pistol. Seeing it Johnson remarked: “Colonel, a .45 pistol will be of little use against an enemy attack.”
