79 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover (red cloth with black lettering on spine) - no dust jacket. B&w maps. "This diary is reproduced exactly as written at the time of the events it records in France, with the exception of some omissions and a f ew minor alterations necessary in the interests of security...Its sole interest rests in the simple sequence of entries that accumulate and combine finally to illustrate the immeasurable complications and infinite reactions of the short campa i g n i n France as jotted down by an independent witness. The diary may, perhaps, help readers grasp even more clearly than they do already from following events in the Press, the accumulation of weight, both political and military, that piled u p du ri n g th e first phase of this universal warfare to handicap the commanders of the British Expeditionary Force and the British Air Forces in France."
