How did a flu outbreak in Kansas eventually lead to the deaths of an estimated 50 to 100 million people all over the world? Readers will find out in The Flu of 1918: Millions Dead Worldwide! First-person accounts and dramatic photos bring to life the grim atmosphere of death and despair that followed this disease from an army camp in America to the battlefields of World War I in Europe and beyond.
