The greater WW1 threat - bullets or bacteria?

The blog of the National Archives in England has an interesting piece by Sarah Castagnetti about what the bigger threat to a soldier might have been in the First World War - bullets or bacteria? It's an interesting read offering a different perspective to what we normally think about when it comes to the nature of military casualties from the conflict, and can be accessed at http://blog.nationalarchives.gov.uk/blog/bullets-bacteria/. There will be further medically themed blog posts on the way soon also, tied into the conflict.
