    No disease the world has ever known even remotely resembles the great influenza epidemic of 1918. Presumed to have begun when sick farm animals infected soldiers in Kansas, spreading and mutating into a lethal strain as troops carried it to Europe, it exploded across the world with unequaled ferocity and speed. It killed more people in 20 weeks than AIDS has killed in 20 years; it killed more people in a year than the plagues of the Middle Ages killed in a century.

    Nancy says: "Gripping and Gory"
    "a great history of our medical exploration"
    Overall

    and how we grew in our contry's medical knowledge. The flu epidemic was so consuming and so horrible that I find the loss of life described almost unreal. I cannot believe how much this country, and especially our armed forces suffered and died. And then to hear how horrible this flu murdered world wide. I just cannot believe how much and how many people died and much we depend on our medical experts.
