New York: E.P Dutton & Co, Inc (1929). First US edition in near fine condition. The boards are very clean without wear. The pages are very clean and the top edge retains its deep red topstain. A very nice copy.
Translated by Thonald Holland and with an introduction by John Brophy. A rare biography first published in german in the same year. Brophy says of it “In no other war book that i have read is the monstrous despotisnm of modern artillery so vividly communicated to the reader.” A violent and detailed account from the author, starting with his training and then onto the western front. A rare biography.
