MOTTRAM (R.H.), EASTON (John) & PARTRIDGE (Eric) Three Personal Records of the War. 1st Ed., [vi]+406pp., 2 maps. VG in dw. Scholartis Press. 1929  #63170
[HLMainPic] Mottram's "A Personal Record," John Easton's "Broadchalk, A Chronicle" & Eric Partridge's "Frank Honeywood, Private." All three based on their authors' personal experiences of the Western Front. "Three well-known writers combine to give three vastly different but in each case interesting pictures of the War. Me Mottram's begins with the Ypres Salient in 1915, & goes on to those administrative experiences used in the 'Spanish Farm' books. Mr Easton's is an account of the Battle of Loose. Mr Partridge's is a long record of service in the Australian infantry. The second is in a class by itself from every point of view; its brilliant characterisation & wonderfully described action makes Mr Mottram's philosophising appear flat. The little nineteen-year-old subaltern Broadchalk deserves a place among the typical British figures of the War" - Falls, awarding a coveted star. Orig. black cloth, gilt, VG in dw, nice copy.
