  • Sulfanilamide
  • Penicillin
  • Atabrine
  • Sulfanilamide was used to kill lethal bacteria by Gerhard Johannes Paul Domagk. When his own daughter was ill with strep throat, he was able to cure her, and prove that sulfanilamide worked on people too. He received a Nobel Prize for his work, and is said to have helped win the war, since his discovery saved soldiers lives.
  • Sir Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin on accident, from a discarded petri dish, injected with staph bacteria. However, it was Howard Florey, Ernst Chain, and their colleagues who turned concepts into life-saving, widely used medication. This treatment was frequently used on the battlefield, and saved soldiers from lethal infections.
  • Atabrine was used to help soldiers with malaria. It was equally as effective as quinine, but also resulted in side effects, and was claimed to have a strange after taste. Some soldiers refused to take this medication, because of this, or they believed it could possibly induce headaches, vomiting, or short-lived psychosis.
