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.

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.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Influenza 1918 DVD:

I never had any idea untill I watched this how many in the U.S. alone died of it, as they said more then all other wars combined before the 1918 pandemic broke out.

A look back at a tragedy few remember.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Influenza 1918 DVD:

Fine show about the terrible influenza outbreak of 1918 that killed more Americans than all the wars of the 20th century combined. Yet few today even are aware it happened.
