The culmination of Churchill's Boer War narrative in South Africa that began with LONDON TO LADYSMITH, including the triumphant liberation of his former-POW campmates in Pretoria.

Description: A very good copy of the Second Printing of the First English edition, which the publisher designated as a "Second Edition" but which bibliographer Ronald Cohen argues is really more a second printing, with very modest changes made to the text and overall layout of the book. To the naked eye it appears identical to the First Edition, particularly in this attractive example, which is bright and tight, with rich red cloth and little perceptible spine fade. There is a hint of shelf wear and a few faint scuffs. The contents are fine and unfoxed.
