The Spanish Influenza of 1918 actually had three waves spread out from the summer of 1918 to spring of 1919, the one during the winter of 1918/19 being the highest:

      I have a copy of the one book mentioned in the references, "The Great 
Influenza: The Epic Story of the Greatest Plague in History", in the mail, and it 
should be here any day now.  I want to better understand how that one developed and 
spread.

It may be of interest to you that there's quite a bit of evidence that the high mortality rate in the 1918 epidemic was likely mostly the result of wild overuse of aspirin - aspirin poisoning.

There's lots on the web about it, some possibly even accurate. :-)
