Influenza

Spanish Flu (1918 - 1919) killed 50 to 100 million people worldwide in less than 2 years, more people than Hitler, nuclear weapons and all the terrorists of history combined.

My Great grandmother Maggie Fisher (nee McNab) was one of its victims. The record of her death includes two other deaths. The overwhelming effect of this pandemic is demonstrated by all three deaths being from flu.
