This chapter introduces the initially unknown disease that appeared in Ireland in the summer of 1918, and describes the initial fears that the disease was perhaps a plague that had emerged from the conditions of war. It looks at the historiography of the disease to date, and sets the disease in the context of other major disease events in Irish and world history.
