Henry Dunant Quote

I was a mere tourist with no part whatever in this great conflict; but it was my rare privilege, through an unusual train of circumstances, to witness the moving scenes that I have resolved to describe. In these pages I give only my personal impressions; so my readers should not look here for specific details, nor for information on strategic matters; these things have their place in other writings.


p. 16; As quoted in The Independent, Friday, 22 February 2002 - A Memory of Solferino (1862)
