Some scientists say that the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 that killed so many people during WWI was a variety of Bird Flu. If you don't recall the account, as many people died due to the Flu symptoms as were killed in all of WWI. Matter-of-fact several historians have said that WWI was called off and an Armistice was signed creating the League of Nations due to so many soldiers on both sides had either died from the Flu or were so sick they could not muster a fighting force to continue. It was estimated that roughly 20-50 million died worldwide from the Pandemic.
