About this Item

224 pp, preface, list of b&w illustration from Official Photographs and maps, I. Beginning of a Sublatern's War; II. An Adventure on the Somme; III. The Middle Year of the War; IV. An Adventure in the Third Battle of Ypres; V. The End of a Sublatern's War; Epilogue: An Essay on Militarism; Appendix: A. Note on Trench Warfare; B. Formations. First Edition, 1929. "At the time of writing I had access to the war diaries and other confidential papers of my battalion. By referring to them, to a jounal which I kept irregularly at the front, and to my letters to my mother, I have been able to substantiate the main facts of these stories, which to the bes to my knowledge are historically accurate. The rest of this book is composed of fragments from the same sources with a good deal of explanatory matter, which I venture to add for the information of any post- war readers of this book. It differs from most recent war books in being nat a record of impressions received, but an account of how a young soldier occupied his time, and a list of the duties he was called on to perform." from the Preface. Inked name on half-title. Minor edge wear with age-toned text block edges and partial age-toned endpapers. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Red cloth with gilt lettering to spine, and maps on endpapers. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 000338
