ELLIS, JOHN - World War II; the Sharp End (New Revised Edition)

London, Windrow and Greene. 1990, First Edition. (ISBN: 1872004563). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 412 pages. 53 illustrations. This is the New Edition Revised by the author and Re-illustrated. The book is a uniquely detailed and accessible study of the actual human experience of the Allied front line soldier in World War II. In these pages the reader will confront war at the physical and mental level of the individual soldier, and largely through the words of the infantrymen, tank crewmen, and gunners who saw combat 'at the sharp end'. It is not only an anthology of individual voices but also a deeply informative explanation of life in the front line, in which the historian author details all the major factors most closely affecting the soldiers' daily predicament - so often ignored in conventional histories but so central to the individual's experience of war.
