25 million people in five years? That's astounding!
Considering that the total population of Europe in the 14th Century was probably less than 150 million, that's just an incredible death rate.
Not that astounding when just a couple years ago 14,000 French died from temperatures of 104 degrees outsidestory
Pfft...the French. They wouldn't last a week in Arizona. Don't they know there is air conditioning available in this day and age, and for relatively cheap? Oh yeah, just going in the house and staying hydrated would probably do the trick.
