An account of Edmund Allenby's military career, from his early days in South Africa through the campaigns of the Great War in France and Palestine, and to his post-war service in Egypt. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait and fold-out map to rear.
A very good copy. The cloth spine suffers from surface scuffs / mottling but remains a very attractive copy.
