American Experience: Influenza 1918
On the brink of America’s WWI involvement in the spring of 1918, a home-grown, silent killer blindsided our nation, causing more American lives to be lost that year than all the wars of the 20th century combined. Doctors were forced to take notice of the flu—a disease they knew very little about, but which would go on that year to cause America’s worst epidemic in history—675,000 Americans dead. 2006/color/60 min/NR/fullscreen.
