About this Item

vii, [5], 464 p. From Wikipedia: "Frederick Palmer (January 29, 1873-September 2, 1958) was an American journalist and writer. Born in Pleasantville, Pennsylvania, Palmer attended Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. The New York Press hired Palmer in 1895 as its London correspondent; and this opportunity evolved into a long career. Palmer's fifty years as a war correspondent began when he was sent to cover the Greco-Turkish War of 1897 for the New York World and for Collier's Weekly. He then covered the gold rush in northwestern Canada. The Philippine American War (1899 1902) provided an opportunity for him to cross the Pacific bound for Manila. In 1900, Palmer went to China to cover the Boxer Rebellion (1900); and then he was sent to cover the Boer War (1899 1902) in South Africa. Then the prospect of military conflict in Manchuria brought him back to China to cover the Russo-Japanese War (1904 1905) for the New York Globe. The New York Times sent Palmer to cover the Balkan War in 1912. In 1914, Palmer was arrested in Mexico City while covering the Tampico Affair (1914) and the United States occupation of Veracruz for Everybody's Magazine. General John Pershing persuaded him to take on the task of press accreditation for the American Expeditionary Force (AEF). In this period, he was accorded the rank of Colonel. Palmer subsequently became the first war correspondent to win the U.S. Army's Distinguished Service Medal. Between World War I and World War II, Palmer wrote thirty-one books, including Our Greatest Battle, based on his World War I experiences. In his books, he provided an analysis of the future impact of weapons and strategies he had seen, and soon after the end of World War I predicted that a second world war was on the horizon. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from Princeton University in 1935." Fair. No dust jacket. Boards weak and restrengthened with glue. Bookseller Inventory # 69004
