A Brass Hat In No Man's Land by F.P. Crozier 1st / 1st 1930
London: Jonathan Cape (1930). A scarce near fine copy of the First UK edition. The wrapper, normally encountered in a poor state, is very complete and without any loss. It has a small tear to the top edge of the front panel and has a couple of pieces of tape to the reverse otherwise it is in near fine order. The book has a previous owner’s name stamped on the front free end paper. The pages are very clean and without foxing marks or other wear. Overall a near fine copy.
A biography from the commander of the 36th Ulster Division who saw action at Thiepval on the first day of the battle of the Somme. It is an uncommon book to find in such nice condition.
