Review: THE GREAT INFLUENZA by John Barry

Impressions in Ink recently read and reviewed The Great Influenza by John Barry for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

I learned information about the history of nurses, how they were looked down upon by medical doctors, because they were mis-informed about their valuable need. In some instances nurses were more educated and qualified than surgeons.
I learned about what censorship does during a pandemic and during a war. Those that censored believed that if they didn’t release information about what was going on, it would keep the morale high, and also keep people from panicking.

Read the full review.
