The first and only Churchill novel, a statement of personal and political philosophy delivered as a fictional adventure yarn. U.S. publication preceded the British issue by roughly ten days, rendering the American first edition the true first.

Description: This reprint was published for The Library Association and most copies went to libraries, making any non-Ex-Library copy a rather rare book. Scarce in any condition, this is an extraordinarily fine, crisp example in a fine, unfaded dust jacket. Unequivocally fine.
