More Deadly Than War
This book gave a very thorough account of the Spanish Influenza which was historically second only to the Black Death and which was more deadly than WWI. This history of the war and how it influenced and impacted the spread of the virus was very interesting. So too, it the collective memory loss of this event over the years. I did find that some of the historical chapters seemed a bit disorganized or redundant - especially the chapter dealing with the end of the war, peace, and Wilson. It was a good book though with good information.
