This is the story of the Geneva Convention and the
extraordinary events which brought it into being. Who
would have thought that the world's first treaty on human
rights could have been founded by two young men - Henry
Dunant and Gustave Moynier - who cordially loathed each
other? Angela Bennett describes how they drew up a code
of practice for the treatment of war-wounded in battle.
She follows Dunant on his epic crusade across Europe
where he succeeded in summoning the rulers of almost
every country to a meeting in Geneva. Angela Bennett's
lively narrative takes the reader into the nineteenth
century and brings to life the elegant salons, the
suffering and horror of the battlefield and the
frustrations and tortuous complications which nearly
destroyed the Geneva Convention and Red Cross in the
early years. She concludes with some hard questions about
the Convention today.
