“The Great Influenza” by John.M. Barry Summary
The book is well researched, yet the key element that makes the book readable is the narrative about the state of medical science, medical schools and their evolution at the start of the 20th century.
Then the historical context is set up for the events that followed. There is also a detailed account of why the pandemic took such a toll on the world. The Great Influenza Epidemic of 1918-19. begins in September of 1876 with the founding of the Johns Hopkins University, with its emphasis on medical research. It continues with the difficulty in getting doctors and educators to believe that there was a place for research in medicine at all .In start of chapter 14 we read the news that in February of 1918 someone from Haskell County Kansas most likely carried the disease to Camp Funston, a U.S. Army training camp located on Fort Riley, southwest of Manhattan, Kansas.
It goes on to tell in great detail the difficulty of convincing the army, or most anyone in power, that it was killing people, even as it was doing exactly that.We highly recommend this great book to download and read.
