[HLMainPic] Excellent detailed history includes much on ammunition supply on all the fighting fronts, guns & gun parks, &c., with Roll of Hon. & awards. "[Vol. III] is extraordinarily good & as fascinating as any romance... that [section] on the BEF in France & Belgium... is incomparably the most important & is also the best written. In particular, Chapter II, 'Trench Warfare-General Outline,' which details with the character of the warfare, novel equipment, & the enlarged scope of Ordnance functions should be read by everyone - even if he reads no other part of the work - who desires to have a comprehensive view of the War as a whole. It is the complement to almost all the formal histories, reminiscences, & even novels written about the War." - Falls. Orig. cloth, VG ex-RE lib., Chatham. See illustration on our website.   £75
