Product description


Catharine Arnold's book offers us a coherent, well-researched and sanitary reminder that another pandemic could be just around the corner with equally horrific consequences. (Sir Tony Robinson)

Fascinating . lurid and pacy . the page-turning fascination of a detective thriller. (BBC History Magazine)

Catharine Arnold has done a remarkable job of relating the tales of a diverse set of sufferers, crafting an arresting and intimate narrative of the 1918 pandemic . a gripping tale that swoops down into the grisly detail, then soars up to give a broad view over the landscape of this calamitous moment in human history . Arnold writes beautifully, and starkly, of the tragedy that unfolded. (New Statesman)

Book Description

The influenza epidemic of 1918 was the greatest human disaster of the 20th century and most likely in all recorded history. This is a moving, unique and highly prescient history, filled with eye-witness accounts.
