Drawing upon various sources, the book traces the course of the forgotten influenza pandemic of 1918.There are no competing books addressing the 1918 flu pandemic from this angle. With bird flu constantly in the news, this book questions whether we're any more ready now than we were then. It is written by an experienced author, writing regularly in newspapers.'Never since the Black Death has such a plague swept over the face of the world,' commented the "Times", '[and] never, perhaps, has a plague been more stoically accepted.' When the Great Influenza pandemic finally ended, in April 1919, 228,000 people in Britain alone were dead. This book tells the story of the Great Influenza pandemic.

Review:

Read this book to understand what happened to a country caught up in both a war and a disease that killed millions worldwide, led by variously competent civil servants whose responses, or lack of them, have some worrying parallels with UK pandemic plans today. --New Scientist

Very informative and easy to read. --Irish Times

A chastening read, but mercifully level-headed. --Financial Times
