As the nation mobilized for war in the spring of 1918, ailing Private Albert Gitchell reported to an army hospital in Kansas. He was diagnosed with the flu, a disease about which doctors knew little. Before the year was out, America would be ravaged by a flu epidemic that killed 675,000 people--more than died in all the wars of this century combined--before disappearing as mysteriously as it began.

Good DVD to add to the collection

By Sewsheila

Comments about PBS American Experience: Influenza 1918 DVD:

I give 4 stars because the movie is what I expected, a supplement to my health lesson on public health in the early 1900's. Many of the phots are all over the internet and video clips on you tube so although it was not five stars, it did seem to validate the lesson.

Excellent account

Comments about PBS American Experience: Influenza 1918 DVD:

Great story of the pandemic of nearly a century ago as analyzed with modern forensic tools. Gives great insights to not only the medical and social impacts but how we humans fit in the global ecosystem and will always be as vulnerable as any organism residing in it...no matter how much technology we produce.
