While Dr. Lee R. McDowell’s book unflinchingly portrays the tragic consequences of diseases during wars, it also celebrates the triumph of science and human ingenuity in the face of adversity.

In “U.S. Wars & Diseases,” Dr. McDowell unveils a hidden truth that will reshape people’s perception of warfare. From the harrowing tales of Indian wars to the blood-soaked battlefields of international wars, the book delves deep into the military engagements that have shaped the American nation.

With meticulous detail, Dr. McDowell uncovers the alarming truth that diseases have been the silent executioners, claiming countless lives during these tumultuous times. Astonishingly, two-thirds of all deaths were attributed to diseases rather than enemy action during the Civil War.

“U.S. Wars & Diseases” casts a revealing light on the specific illnesses that ravaged soldiers and civilians alike, leaving no one untouched by their devastating grip. Smallpox, typhoid fever, yellow fever, diarrhea/dysentery, typhus, malaria, influenzas, pneumonia, and tuberculosis emerged as the deadliest culprits, unleashing an unfathomable wave of death on the battlefronts.
