Deadliest in history!
As WWI ended, along came a bigger killer for a malnourished nation: the “Spanish” flu. It killed between 50 and 100m people world-wide and 250,000 in the UK.

Catharine Arnold traces the course of the disease, its origins and progress, across the globe via these remarkable people.
