MEN AT ARNHEM., Angus, Tom.

Author Name    Angus, Tom.

Title   MEN AT ARNHEM.

Publisher    Leo Cooper, London, (1977), reprint.

Seller ID   16843

208 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0850522153 B&w maps, organization chart. "Tom Angus sets out to apportion no blame, nor does he seek to analyse the reasons for the failure of the operation. His aim is simply to describe w hat it was like to be a 30-year old company commander during those eight days in hell. For obvious reasons, the characters are not all drawn straight from life. The names are changed and he does not specify the units concerned. But the e v e n t s h e describes did happen just where and when and how he describes them; so if this is not a conventional work of military history nor is it by any means fiction. It is a remarkable and intensely moving account of one of those great mi li ta ry t ra ge d ie s w hich only the British seem able to turn into triumphs, and as a book it certainly triumphs over all conventional accounts of that blood-drenched sacrifice that was the Battle of Arnhem. It is also the finest evocation of an inf ant rym an' s w ar to b e published for many years and will become a classic in its field." Previous owners small stamp on front pastedown, very tiny bump to bottom corners of boards. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of spine, small gh ost stic ker mark on fro nt f lap . VG+/VG
