        Invisible Enemy - A Video Guide

        In late 1918, arriving Doughboys carried a highly contagious strain of flu to the unsanitary trenches.  In the close quarters, flu spread wildly. For some, pneumonia followed flu. Many died. Pershing himself caught the flu and had to take to his bed. It affected both sides. Soldiers in the field didn’t know how to recognize or treat it. For the Americans, flu caused more deaths than enemy fire.
