Arms and the Covenant captures Churchill’s initial alarms against Hitler and the Nazis in forty-one prophetic pre-war speeches delivered from 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 in 1938.
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.
