About this Item: Hutchinson & Co., Paternoster Row, London, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. On the whole a very well preserved copy of this scarce book. This was dedicated to J.F.C. Fuller's father and mother. The cloth boards are somewhat sunned at the spine ends matching the loss on the dust jacket. Otherwise all is sound with a touch of foxing. The jacket is rather raggy looking with significant loss at spine ends. See pictures. There are some newspaper clippings which are a critique of the book from the Observer newspaper, dated in pen 1925. Laid in there is a letter to Fuller's father written on War Office paper which talks about him obtaining a case of wine, ".Canary Sac at 40/- a dozen." rather interestingly and signed "with love Your affectionate son, John" and dated 1926. Most importantly the inscription from the author on the ffep reads:"With love and good wishes from your son, the author, J.F.C. Fuller. 22 april '25" Interestingly this is slightly more formal than the other signatures in his books which appear to be just to his mother where he typically signed just "John" There is a further pencilled inscription "AWF Fuller from Mother" which was clearly written in later years. A wonderful and unique piece. This is a truely exceptional copy and an important piece of military history. Boney Fuller was at the forefront of armoured and tank warfare, when many around him were doubters of its capabilities. Some say that if the First WW had gone on another year the Boney would have been more famous than Montgomery later was due to the massive tank battle which was planned for 1919. J.F.C was also a colourful character because of his early dabblings in esoteric matters and the occult, particularly in his association with Aleister Crowley. Later he became an Oswald Moseley supporter in the 1930s. Part of a collection acquired from descendants of Fuller. The Oxford Dictionary of Biogs. has this to say about him: Fuller thought of himself as a frustrated great commander and in the early 1920s as a reformer, but his true significance lay in his military thought. His reforming zeal was, in any case, blunted by the orthodoxy of the British army in the inter-war years-reflecting the 'safety' sought by successive governments. As a thinker Fuller sought to develop a system by which to evaluate ideas about war. His works were initially on subjects that were primarily of interest to soldiers, notably on the conduct of military operations; but later he extended his concepts to the relationship between war and society. These more ambitious and wide-ranging works, especially in the 1930s, attempted to define the character of the age in terms of its dynamism and political turmoil. Such an effort to divine the conditions of war, he believed, could help determine future policy. His political philosophy was unashamedly authoritarian and anti-democratic. Even though Fuller's flirtation with fascism blighted his career, his sympathies were by no means atypical as the fascist 'mood' influenced thinkers from a variety of political backgrounds. Despite his extravagances, limitations, and errors, J. F. C. Fuller ranks as one of the most significant thinkers of the twentieth century. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 006603
