ISBN10: 0805066225

Summary: In 1918, a flu virus more lethal than any that has come along since swept through the world, from the remotest villages in Arctic climates to crowded U.S. cities to the battlefields of Europe, killing forty million people. Yet despite its devastating toll & the probability that other deadly pandemics await on the horizon, it was relegated to a footnote in history. The Devil's Flu is the extraordinary story of 1918's forgotten tragedy & of the global scientific community's effort to a
vert another such disaster. The 1918 flu still so intrigues & frightens experts in the field that in 1998 a group of respected scientists journeyed to the Norwegian Arctic Circle in search of the mysterious killer. In The Devil's Flu, Pete Davies captures the excitement of the hunt & the intense rivalries within the scientific community, & paints a vivid portrait of the eccentric scientists bent on capturing the prize information that could hold the key to our future safety. And as far as the next pandemic is concerned, scientists agree: it's not a question of if, but of when. ''Rich in interest & truly alarming in its prognosis, this is a book that deserves to be read.''--The Observer ''Enthralling...read this book; you won't be disappointed.'' --The Spectator.
