The Spanish flu was the worst pandemic the world has ever seen, next to the bubonic plague of 1346. About 500 million people were infected by it, and between 25-50 million lost their lives. It occurred toward the end of the First World War which lasted between 1918-1920, and in the United States alone, there were around 675,000 deaths recorded. This book revisits the Spanish flu in a unique way, starting with a brief scientific explanation of the virus and then going deeper to explore its historical context.

There is a dire need for this informative and timely book that carefully and meticulously details the history of the Spanish flu and elaborates upon a cohesive response and integrated efforts in response to it. This book revisits the Spanish flu in a unique way, starting with a brief scientific explanation of the virus and then going deeper to explore its historical context.

In this amazing audiobook, we revisit this terrifying time that left the world in fear, and you’ll learn:

  • A history of the Spanish flu
  • The beginning of the outbreak
  • How the pandemic spread around the world
  • How the American cities dealt with the virus

boring

this is a book about the virus behind the pandemic. I was hoping for a book about the socioeconomic consequences. how countries and people reacted and recovered. this book glosses over that in a couple sentences and the other 2 hours are about what species of animals can have what class of virus etc. closer to a year 12 biology report than a history book.
