Description: This highly sought after regimental history features an extensive nine-page introduction by Winston Churchill who, as First Lord of the Admiralty, was closely involved with the creation of the division and its World War I service in France.
This is a very good copy in the extraordinarily rare dust jacket, unclipped and clean, with age-darkened spine and a slightly darkened face. The jacket is lightly edge-chipped with fractional loss at the head and tail. The book is remarkably fresh; the cloth bright and unfaded. The contents are fine, with light foxing to the fore-edges and prelims. A true rarity thus.
