I liked this DVD. The Great Fever documents the heroic efforts of Major Walter Reed's medical team and their investigation into yellow fever. Their discoveries enabled the United States to successfully eradicate the disease among workers constructing the Panama Canal, making possible the completion of one of the most strategic waterways in the world.
