Description: William Kimber, London, 1968, first edition.. 172 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photogarphs, maps. "Christopher Haworth went to the front near Ypres in 1918: an apprentice law writer of just nineteen, full of idealism and perhaps a little priggish. He became a good soldier, though not in the way of the Regular Army; he missed the slogging disillusion of First and Second Ypres, the Battles of the Aisne and Somme. He was typical of the new, amateur army which was needed to replace the flower of the R e g u l a r A r m y who had held the initial German advances in 1914-15. This is a personal, highly individual account of those last epic months of the Great War and from it emerges some idea of that unwarlike, unexpected quality which thwarted th e pl an s of L u de nd or ff and brought us final victory on the Western Front.." Two creases down free front endpaper, wrinkling at bottom of spine - minor wrinkling at toptiny faint stain on top of textblock. Dust jacket has light edge wear/w ri nkl ing , one or t wo tin y s cuffs, several small closed tears - one with crease, light soiling, light edge browning, ghost sticker mark with tiny pull on front panel, very light water stains on inside of spine. Very Good/Good.
