Guide

ARMS AND THE COVENANT

Churchill's initial alarms against Hitler and the Nazis are collected here in forty-one adamant pre-war speeches, 1936-1938, edited by his son Randolph. Published in the U.S. under the title WHILE ENGLAND SLEPT, the book, according to FDR, sat on his White House nightstand.

Description: This is a very good copy of the scarce First American edition of ARMS AND THE COVENANT, in the very rare dust jacket, which is unclipped and virtually mint. The contents are fine, with very faint tanning to the endpapers. Just about flawless.
