The World at a Standstill: The Story of the 1918 Flu Pandemic that Shook the World (Paperback)
The 1918 Great Influenza was a moment of one of the sobering events to have ever been confronted by humans. The epidemics loomed at the height of World War I to unveil the most lethal influenza virus that originated from an army camp in Kansas, traveled east with American troops, and then went out of control by killing millions of people worldwide.
The Spanish flu story is a story that is even more relevant today, especially as history seems to have repeated itself. Unlike other plagues that we then to confront frequently, like AIDS, Ebola, anthrax spores, and, of course, the Black Death, the 1918 Great Flu Epidemic killed an estimated forty million people virtually overnight, taking a comparable percentage of the world's population with it.
This book exposes some of the grilling events as they unfolded during that time and what the world could learn from it, even now.
