Cuba in War Timeby Richard Harding Davis
This early work by Richard Harding Davis was originally published in 1897 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Cuba in War Time' contains the author's reports of the Cuban-Spanish War and its effects on the nation and people of Cuba. Davis attended Lehigh University and Johns Hopkins University, but was asked to leave both due to neglecting his studies in favour socialising. During the Second Boer War in South Africa, Davis was a leading correspondent of the conflict. He saw the war first-hand from both parties perspectives and documented it in his publication 'With Both Armies' (1900). He wrote widely from locations such as the Caribbean, Central America, and even from the perspective of the Japanese forces during the Russo-Japanese War. Davis died following a heart attack on 11th April, 1916, at the age of 51.
