As new. "William Orpen was the only official war artist to publish an extensive memoir of his experiences in the Great War. This compelling narrative was first published in 1921 and is a classic of war literature. In this fully revised edition, Orpen's war paintings and drawings have been reproduced in colour and keyed to the narrative, resulting in a perceptive and moving account by an artist who moved easily between all levels of the military, from Generals to Tommies, and was a close friend of many journalists and influential civilians. But despite his high-level connections, Orpen's emotional sympathies were with the common soldier, whose post-war neglect embittered his view of the political classes. He witnessed not… Read more

Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed. Very good condition. The only such guide to the history and wildlife of the Algoa Bay islands. "Threads of solitude and privation, punctuated by moments of high drama, bind together the lives of all those people who have had to come to terms with these islands - from the first people known to have set foot on them, terrified survivors of early shipwrecks, right up to the modern residents who are there because they choose to be. Not even modern technological conveniences like super-fast boats, helicopter shuttles, two-way radios, television, or now even cellular telephones, can entirely cancel out the loneliness of the islands." .

Rather than dwell on the broader events of our time, the authoress relates her characters' personal battles - and their victories. In this collection, the Cape becomes as much a character as the people who inhabit it. For the Cape with its sleepy atmosphere, its spectrum of humanity and its astonishing beauty, was the source of inspiration for Loaded." .

What was the earliest published poem from Wodehouse's pen? Take Usborne's word as sooth on all such conundrums. This book is an open door to the world of Wodehouse." .

He served in the first World War and subsequently made a name for himself as a daring and enterprising contractor, building bridges and dams in many parts of Southern Africa.
