[HLMainPic] North-West Frontier, Sudan, WW1 in Mespot. & Turkish captivity (GOC in Mesopotamia 1914-16). Elusive testimony to "a born leader of men, of great personal gallantry but egotistical & conceited," in the opinion of Cyril Falls, who regretted Sherson did not "investigate the rumour... that he did not interest himself in the fate of his men, when he was royally treated in Constantinople & they were living in supreme misery." Orig. red cloth gilt, minor wear, VG. See illustration on our website.   £25
