Atabrine, the anti-malarial drug used in World War 2

The United States Army faced difficult malaria control problems both at home and abroad during World War II. This challenge forced the Army to use the anti-malarial drug called Atabrine.

In the Spanish American War, the U.S. Army suffered 332 battle deaths and 2,957 deaths from this disease. Take a look at some of the adverts for spreading the drug and soldiers or civilians who got infected.
