The Undying Story Mons to the Aisne by W Douglas Newton 1st / 1st 1915
London: Jarrold & Sons (1915) A first UK edition in very near fine condition. The boards are exceptionally clean, as are the pages and the three fold out maps. There are no tears and very little handling wear at all. This is a highly collectible copy.
The author describes in detail the work of the British Expeditionary Force on the continent from Mons, August 23rd, 1914 through to Ypres on November 15th, 1914. The “fighting retreat” of the British Army from Mons to Ypres, foiled the German advance on Paris and saved the Allies’ line. A rare first print copy and especially so in such nice condition.
