War Diaries and Other Papers by Max Hoffmann 1st / 1st 1929
London: Martin Secker (1929). This two volume set is the UK first issue. It is in very good condition. The boards are generally in presentable condition. There are light marks to top of the spine of volume 2 and a small split to the top of volume 1. The pages are clean and free from marks. Overall very good.

Hoffmann was one of Imperial Germany’s chief strategists along with Hindenburg and Ludendorff and held the position of Chief of Staff of the Eastern Front.
