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 There will be further medically themed blog posts on the way soon also, tied into the conflict.
