Description for The Demon Under the Microscope: From Battlefield Hospitals to Nazi Labs, One

Review

“Fascinating . . . A rousing, valuable contribution to the history of medicine.”
-Kirkus Reviews (Starred)

"A well-told tale of trail-blazing science."
-Booklist

"Highly recommended."
-Library Science

"This is a grand story, and Mr. Hager tells it well...one can easily imagine 'The Demon Under the Microscope,' like 'Microbe Hunters' before it, inspiring in young, idealistic readers the enthusiasm for medical research and the zeal for healing that generates great physicians."
-Wall Street Journal

"Surprisingly entertaining...[Hager's] enthusiasm for the search for a 'magic bullet' drug in the early 20th century is infectious. He convincingly credits sulfa drugs for some of the most revolutionary and catastrophic moments in medicine. And anecdotes about famous people affected- from Calvin Coolidge to Eleanor Roosevelt- are narrative spoonfuls of sugar."
-Entertainment Weekly

"Grips the reader from the first paragraph...a story of dedication, luck, tragedy and triumph that's still relevant today."
-Bookpage

"Hager, a biographer of Linus Pauling, does a remarkable job of transforming material fit for a graduate biology seminar into highly entertaining reading. He knows that lay readers need plenty of personality and local color, and his story is rich with both. This yarn prefigures the modern rush for corporate pharma patents; it is testament to Hager's skills that the inherently unsexy process of finding the chemicals that might help conquer strep is as exciting an account of the hunt for a Russian submarine."
-Publishers Weekly
