The General by C.S. Forester 1st / 1st 1936

The General by C.S. Forester 1st / 1st 1936


London: Michael Joseph Ltd (1936). First UK edition with the rare pictoral dust wrapper. The wrapper does have chipping to the edges and small tears in particular to the spine ends and along the top edge. There is a chip to the back panel. That said it is in better condition than is usually encountered. It is a fragile wrapper and is fairly complete. The book itself is very presentable with only faint foxing to the title and a couple of other pages. Overall a very good copy.


The book centers around the titular general and portrays, among other things, the British efforts to deal with the dilemma of trench warfare. Foresters second war book
