Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 0170050661. Book has wear at spine ends and corners, but is otherwise very nice. Dust jacket has a large damp stain on the inside of the back, which is only visible when the dust jacket is removed. The book is not affected. Jacket also has light edge wear, rubbing and pitting, but no tears or chips. Sounds worse than it is. Jacket now in new mylar which jazzes it right up.; The story of World War I in the words of the men who sailed from Australia to the greatest holocaust the world has ever known. Through letters and diaries we are transported back in time and thousands of miles to the stench and heat of Gallipoli and the mud, slime and brutality of the Western Front. They describe the gas, the shells the bullets and the bombs which massacred their comrades; they curse the frostbite and trench feet, and the mud of Flanders. And then, at last, they write of going home-and their disillusion when the find there are no jobs for Australia's heroes. Numerous black and white photos and illustrations throughout.; 372 pages.
Hardcover, 4to, ix + 372pp. Brown cloth with gilt title etc to spine, Illustrated throughout in black and white, pictorial endpapers, bibliography, index. Just a hint of rubbing to edges of boards, all else near fine. (Short tear at base of spine of pictorial dust jacket; otherwise near fine)
Just what I wanted - hard cover in good condition. This is a great book on Anzac history containing the thoughts and memories of many veterans who were still alive when it was written. I previously had a paperback version which fell apart because I had used it so many times.
