About This Item

This is a first edition of Following the Drum: The Lives of Army Wives and Daughters Past and Present, written in 2005 by the British journalist Annabel Venning.

Spanning four centuries, from the 1660s to the present day, it tells the stories of the wives, daughters and mistresses of British soldiers who followed their menfolk to some of the most treacherous places in the world and sometimes on to the battlefield itself. These brave and resourceful women often endured long marches and harsh sieges, were taken captive or forced to become fugitives in enemy territory and struggled to keep themselves and their families alive.

This copy is in mint condition--that smear on the cover is the remnants of the price tag. There's a little bit of shelfwear to the back of the (unclipped) dust jacket.


NOTE: My quoted price for shipping OUTSIDE of North America is for surface mail without tracking. For other shipping options, please contact me.
