Author Name    Tuker, Farncis, Lieut.-General Sir.

Title   WHILE MEMORY SERVES.

Publisher    Cassell, London, 1950, first edition.

Seller ID   19325

668 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover (green cloth with gold lettering on spine) - no dust jacket. B&w photographs, reproductions, maps (2 fold-out). "This is the tale of the last two years of British rule in India (1946-47), told by one who watche d events from the Headquarters of Eastern Command. My story will show how Indian affairs were when the (Second World War) was over: the rapid deterioration of the adminstration as the small British cadre of civil officials was hurriedly replaced by Indian, and as independence became more and more certain; in particular the lawlessness which so quickly set in: the almost insupportable burden that was placed upon and successfully borne by the Indian Army and its few British officers, and how gr e at was the debt that India, the Commonwealth and indeed the world owed to the devotion of these officers, their skill, patience and staunchness: that we had no honourable alternative but to quit India: and, lastly, why, unless Russia first collaps es , India - Hindustan, if you will - is in grave danger of becoming communist in the not distant future. Of necessity the tale starts with a description of Eastern Command and its peoples. A more detailed description of Hinduism I have relagated to Appendix I. Without some knowledge of that system it is impossible either to understand the political and communal affairs of which the book speaks or to be aware of the bearing of Hinduism upon the past and, above all, the future of India." Ciga ret te odor inside, light browning to endpapers, foxing mark on title page and dedication page, light browning to edges of textblock - tiny foxing marks on top of textblock, a few faint areas of discoloration on boards, slight fading to spine colour , ve ry light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Very Good-
