Title   THE BANTAMS: THE UNTOLD STORY OF WORLD WAR I.

Publisher    Mosaic, (Oakville, 1982).

Seller ID   14538

287 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. B&w photos. "At the outset of the 1914-18 War, no recruiting officer would look at any young man who was in less than the prime and peak of physical condition...Any volunteer who was less than the regulation five feet three inches in height got very short shrift...But the war was not very old before the official reaction to undersized volunteers had to change dramatically. Britain's Regular Army, the Expeditionary Force, was virtually wiped out in the first months of fighting...This book relates the history of the Bantam Battalions from beginning to bloody end - one might almost say 'out of nowhere, back into obscurity', for it is suprising how many official histories of the Great War have ignored the very real part these little men played..." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edges of textblock, tiny stain of fore-edge of textblock, light browning to edges of covers, very light wear at top of spine, slight curling to fore-edge of covers. VG-
