MONTAGUE (C.E.) Fiery Particles. 1st Ed., ix+233pp. VG in dw. Chatto & Windus. 1923  #63067
[HLMainPic] Montague, journalist & author, served overseas in the ranks & as an Intelligence officer. "This is a series of short stories or sketches of warfare by a hand very skilled in character-drawing & a real master of easy & charming prose... [Montague has:] the valuable quality of being able to display his bitterness & ram home his criticism without ranting. At times he can be delightfully humorous. What better or temperate & even kindly picture of the young medal-collecting embusque has ever been drawn than is to be found here in Honours Easy? This book is far superior to Rough Justice & must be set among our best." - Falls (awarding a rare two star rating). Montague sold in large numbers in his day but is now barely remembered. Nice copy in very sl. chipped dw. See illustration on our website.   £45
