From National Book Award finalist Albert Marrin comes a fascinating look at the history and science of the deadly 1918 flu pandemicand the chances for another worldwide pandemic.In spring of 1918, World War I was underway, and troops at Fort Riley, Kansas, found themselves felled by influenza. By the summer of 1918, the second wave struck as a highly contagious and lethal epidemic and within weeks exploded into a pandemic, an illness that travels rapidly from one continent to another. It would impact the course of the war, and kill many millions more soldiers than warfare.Of all diseases, the 1918 flu was by far the worst that has ever afflicted humankind; not even the Black Death of the Middle Ages comes close in terms of the number of lives it took. No war, no natural disaster, no famine has claimed so many. In the space of eighteen months in 1918-1919, about 500 million peopleone-third of the global population at the timecame down with influenza. The exact total of lives lost will never be known, but the best estimate is between 50 and 100 million.Nonfiction master Albert Marrin examines the history, science, and impact of this great scourgeand the possibility for another worldwide pandemic today.
