Trench Fever

From: Over the top, by and American Soldier who went, by Arthur Guy Empey.

“Trench Fever. A malady contracted in the trenches; the symptoms are high temperature, bodily pains, and homesickness. Mostly homesickness. A bad case lands Tommy in “Blighty,” a slight case lands him back in the trenches, where he tries to get it worse than ever.”
