The Invisible War – Ailsa Wild, Briony Barr, Gregory Crocetti, Ben Hutchings, Jeremy Bar


Set in the WWI era, the story centers on Sister Annie, a nurse who gets infected while treating a patient with dysentery. The story follows the bacteria as they course through her body.

This Invisible War—with black and white illustrations—is an interesting blend of history and science. It is informative and provides important insights into WWI and the horrors of dysentery. The second part of the book contains further explanations of the diseases, including mental and emotional trauma some soldiers experienced. It also contains some interesting facts about WWI. Would recommend this book to anyone interested in history or science.
