The deception involved every branch of Allied wartime intelligence. But at its heart was the “Double Cross System”, a team of double agents controlled by the secret Twenty Committee.

    In the dying months of World War I, Spanish flu suddenly overwhelmed the world, killing between 50 and 100 million people.

Behind the numbers are human lives, stories of those who suffered and fought it - in the hospitals and laboratories.
