KIRKUS REVIEW

The scientists who pitted their knowledge and their lives in a gamble against the scourge which ravaged Europe, Asia and Africa, yellow fever, are credited here. Briefly chronicled are the contributions of Walter Reed, Dr. Lazear, Dr. Gorgas, Dr. Finlay and other heroes who paid with their lives as volunteers or as scientists who suffered accidental infection. A just tribute presented -- without originality.
