Description: Edina Press, Edinburgh, (1977).. 135 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0905695046 "Colonel Campbell was far more than a distinguished soldier, a pioneering boys' club leader, and an imaginative physical educationalist. His great contribution to succeeding gener ations sprang from his awareness that the struggle in every age is not primarily in the realm of the physical and material. The ultimate battle is for the whole man. His life was devoted to achieving right thinking about the almost mystic a l c o n n e c tion between body, mind and spirit. He considered it vital to the survival of the nation. This very thought provoking biography of a prophet, whose life and thought have influenced thousands and who still inspires men today, can b e co m me nd ed f or i ts broad appeal to readers of widely differing interests." Soft wrinkle on pages xi to xiii, small bump to top corner of both boards, slight bump to top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has several small chips and tears - arch iv all y tap ed, li ght ed ge wrinkling, light rubbing, slight fading to spine, address in ink written on rear panel. Very Good/Good.
