Retreat A Story of 1918 by C.R. Benstead 1st / 1st 1930


London; Methuen & Co. Ltd (1930). A near fine copy of the UK first edition. The wrapper is very complete with only minor wear to the spine ends and corners. The reverse of the jacket shows remnants of tape marks. The book has faint marks on the boards. The pages and text block are very clean. Overall a near fine copy.


A fictional account of a padre attached to an artillery unit in the last few months of the war. With maps on the end papers of the British Fifth Army and a detailed account of a retreat, the story is set in a final german offensive in March 1918 and another fighting retreat from the british forces. Rare in near fine condition.
