Imperial War Museum, 1st ed., 1982. 191 pp., photo-frontis., + photo-ills, maps + ills. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Tiny bumps to corners o/w FINE. The author served during World War II in three infantry regiments: the Welch in the U.K.; the Royal Sussex in the Western Desert, and Iraq and Persia; and the East Surreys in Italy. He saw action in El Alamein and northern Italy where, only a fortnight before the end of the war in Europe, he was wounded. Between these spells of fighting he was concerned with the routine of soldiering ' training, parades, courses, inspections and regimental chores. This is an engaging personal account.
