A war correspondent's breathtaking account of early twentieth-century wars, including the Greek-Turkish War (1897) and the Spanish-American War (1898). These events have fallen into relative obscurity, following the two World Wars, yet remain important forces shaping modern politics. 'Moments in Hell' reveals the conflicting loyalties of the war correspondent, caught between political ideologies and personal suffering, and provides an enlightening background to recent conflicts. Harding Davis was a dashingly fashionable figure in turn-of-the-century New York, and cited as the inspiration for the 'Gibson man' - fitting the adventurous image of the journalist popular in film and literature. While his accounts highlight the brutality and inhumanity of war, they are riveting pieces of reportage. Harding Davis makes it clear that these moments in hell can make heroes and villains of us all.
