Journey with a Pistol: A Diary of War

By McCann, Gillian

London, UK: Victor Gollancz Ltd., 1959 A Chronicle of war (from Alamein to the invasion of Sicily) from a point of view other than that of Montgomery of Alamein's Memoirs. This is a personal account of the experiences of a lieutenant in the Eighth Army: the sense of futility because most of the fighting was done by the armoured forces ahead, the dreary foot-slogging across interminable desert, the changing mood of the soldiers during the whole African campaign, and this is beautiful writing capturing the different landscapes and sensations they evoke. Red cloth, gilt titling to spine, 160 pages. Light sunning to top edge, light shelf wear, previous owner's name and a gift inscription to ffep. Dust jacket shows light age darkening, some shelf wear to edges and corner with chipping to spine ends, small pieces missing of corners, two closed tears to top. It is now protected with a Brodart cover. For some international orders we will ask you to approve additional shipping charges to cover the cost of tracking and insurance to your country, but no extra charge will apply without your consent. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
