WAR BIRDS : DIARY OF AN UNKNOWN AVIATOR.

Knight, Clayton (Illustrator).


£30.00




John Hamilton, rep., 1938. 277 + 19 pp., frontis. + ills. D.j., 18 x 12cm. Small, neat sig., ; some tape re-enforcement to underside of d.j., with one tiny chip o/w V.G.+. In the summer of 1917, 210 young university men were sent to England from America with the A.E.F. This is the moving diary of one of them who did not return home. It tells for the first time of their lives and deaths, their successes and failures, and becomes the actual story of one man and his friends, first as guests of an ally in a strange land and then under the stress of battle. This early English reprint is in its Uncommon dust-jacket.
