Peel, Colonel Sidney.


Oxford University Press, 1st ed., 1935. 101 pp., 1 plan. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Chips & repairs to d.j., o/w V.G. The author of the best-selling book Trooper 8008 I.Y., in which he told his experiences of the South African War, now records his memories of the Great War in this volume. He served as a commander and his description of life in a cavalry unit from 1914 to 1917 in the Battle of Loos and on the Somme will add another, and highly individual, item to the long list of soldier's recollections. VERY SCARCE and even more uncommon in its dust-jacket.
