Title: Kitchener's Mob: The Adventures of an American in the British Army.
Description: Thomas Allen, Toronto, 1916, first Canadian edition.. 201 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover (red cloth with black lettering on spine and front board) - no dust jacket. "This brief narrative is by no means a complete record of life in a battalion of one of Lord Kitchener's first armies. It is, rath er, a story in outline, a mere suggestion of that life as it is lived in the British lines along the Western Front. If those who read gain thereby a more intimate view of trench warfare, and of the men who are so gallantly and cheerfully lay i n g d o w n their lives for England, the purpose of the writer will have been accomplished." Book slightly cracked at two places, tiny stain at top edge of half-title and title page, moderate browning to edges of text block, tiny stain in margin s of p a ge s 19 0 &191 - migrates into adjacent pages, light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, scattered small soiling marks/stains on boards.
