[Illustrated] Today, we take for granted that in time of war or disaster, ‘someone’ will be there to assist the wounded and those affected by calamity. But, that assistance was not always there. During the terrible wars and bloodshed of the late 1800’s the RED CROSS was formed to valiantly try to bridge the gap between War and Mercy. This is the story of how the International Red Cross came into existence. The first chapters give the details of the early difficulties of working with governments – both International, National, and local. Later chapters deal with the stories of the disasters and the people who suffered, and how the Red Cross helped them. At its heart, the Red Cross, driven by Clara Barton, looks to a future world where a Red Cross is no longer necessary. By the time you finish this book, you will be touched by the spirit and practical love of Clara Barton, and you will never take the Red Cross, and it’s thousands of volunteers, for granted again. This eBook edition of the original 1898 classic (over 600 pages.) has been carefully scanned, formatted and edited for your reading and historical pleasure. [EDBPubs]
