Description

This is very good copy of a very rare and fragile little volume authored (anonymously) by Andrew Dewarr Gibb, who served under Churchill’s World War I command in the trenches in 1916. His charming account of how Churchill earned the respect of an initially skeptical troop is one of the primary resources of Churchill scholarship but the book was printed cheaply published in small numbers. This copy is in exceptional condition, darkened with age but entirely intact, the spine chipped but again entirely present, which is quite rare. The contents are fine. As good an example as one is ever likely to encounter.
