Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable history of the Spanish Flu....

The 1918 outbreak of the H1N1 strain of influenza, popularly known as the Spanish flu, killed more people worldwide than World War I, which ended the same year. It infected nearly one-third of the world's population and killed 10 percent of those it struck. In its wake, schools and businesses closed, hospitals became overwhelmed, and the sick spilled out into makeshift care centers in public spaces. Policemen, public transportation workers, and everyday citizens in face masks were a common - and eerie - sight. Yet, discussion of this global pandemic often takes a backseat to World War I and other contemporary events. 

In this book, we revisit this terrifying time that left the world in fear. 

Discover a plethora of topics such as

  • The World in 1918
  • The Beginning of the Outbreak
  • What Was the Spanish Flu?
  • The Third and Final Wave
  • Aftermath
  • The Strange Legacy of the Spanish Flu
  • And Much More!

Obviously rushed out because of COVID19 & it shows

If you were unaware that an event called World War 1 was happening in 1918 then this book will fill an important gap in your knowledge. The 2 headlines are. War might have made flu worse and Flu killed more than war. This book will remind you of these 2 facts a lot.

I'm giving this 3 stars because in fairness it is only supposed to be a short history of the topic and we don't expect all the details from an hourly history. Nonetheless I do feel they have stretched 20 minutes of material out to fill the full hour. You could probably get all the same information from Wikipedia, but if like me you're feeling lazy then you may listen to this book instead.

Narration was a bit limp as well.
