Very slight darkening to spine o/w clean & bright , V.G.+. Sir Walter Raleigh was approached in 1918 to write the "Official History of the War in the Air" but sadly he died of typhoid before its completion and so it was continued by H. A. Jones. This book pays tribute to Sir Walter Raleigh and gives a fascinating insight into his involvement in the mammoth study as far as he went. SCARCE.
