Very rare history of Eighth Corps operations from Normandy to the Rhine. 172pp.,maps, frontispiece, folding survey maps in endpocket. Very good condition in chipped, still useful coloured dustwrapper. Handwritten signed presentation inscription from the Corps Commander General Richard O'Connor to the well known author Arthur Bryant. The inscription explains how (Bryant's) writings meant "so much to me during my captivity".General O'Connor, the then highly successful desert commander was spectacularly captured by a German reconnaissance patrol in the desert in 1941 and until his escape in late 1943 spent his time in an Italian POW camp. He returned to England and commanded a full Corps from 1944 until the wars end. Copies of this book are exceptionally rare, and to find one in a dustwrapper with the ultimate inscription from Sir Richard, the Corps Commander, who himself had a larger than life story to tell, makes it unique.
