The Great Influenza

The Great Influenza

by John M Barry

At the height of WWI, history's most lethal influenza virus erupted in an army camp in Kansas, moved east with American troops, then exploded, killing as many as 100 million people worldwide. It killed more people in twenty-four months than AIDS killed in twenty-four years, more in a year than the Black Death killed in a century. But this was not the Middle Ages, and 1918 marked the first collision of science and epidemic disease. Magisterial in its breadth of perspective and depth of research and now...

Although readers may be more familiar with the tribal names Apache and Sioux, it was in fact the legendary... Read more about this item
Mein Kampf

Mein Kampf

by Hitler- Adolf/ Manheim- Ralph

Mein Kampf, in English: My Struggle, is a book by Adolf Hitler. It combines elements of autobiography with an exposition of Hitler's political ideology.
