London: Geoffrey Bles (1932). A very nice near fine two volume set. First UK editions. Thwe bindings are square and tight with no marks on the boards. The pages are very clean and they are complete with all of the illustrations and maps. Overall a near fine set.
Joffre served as Commander-in-Chief of French forces on the Western Front from the start of World War I until the end of 1916. He is best known for regrouping the retreating allied armies to defeat the Germans at the strategically decisive First Battle of the Marne in September 1914.
