He did not paly a part in any major offensives, but his very detailed, matter-of-fact, account of several years of trench warfare, much of it spent in quiet but rarely uneventful sectors, provides a valuable account of war on the Western Front.

Orig. pale mottled paper covd. boards with wheat cloth backstrip, titled in black to sp., VG & rare privately printed memoirs. See illustration on our website.   £275
