General Headquarters 1914-1916 by General Von Falkenhayn 1st / 1st 1919
London: Hutchinson & Co (1919) First UK edition in very good condition. The scarce jacket has some wear to the spine ends and corners. It is browned to the spine. It has a couple of tiny tears to the back panel albeit the jacket is complete. The book looks very clean with hardly any foxing marks and a clean text block. There is a previous owner’s bookplate to the inside board. All of the maps are present. Overall a nice copy of this scarce book.
Falkenhayn was Chief of the German General Staff between 1914 and 1916 and this is his early account of his role and that of his staff during that period including regarding the battle of Ypres and the battles of Verdun and the Somme campaign. Rare in the jacket.
