Abstract:

Several events in my life that I will recount below have combined to make me feel connected to the rickettsiae. Consequently, I was drawn to a recent book somewhat bombastically entitled by Arthur Allen. It centers on an astonishing microbiological story that took place before and during World War II, centered around the making of an effective typhus vaccine. This vaccine became an instrument of war, and its production involved intrigue, deception, and, in great measure, heroism and high class science.
