362 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs, maps. "On 19 August, 1914, the German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, wrote a letter to the First Army commander, General von Kluck: 'It is my Royal and Imperial Command that you concentrate your energies and the valour of my soldiers to exterminate the treacherous English and walk over General French's contemptible little army.' (This book) chronicles that little army, the British Regular Army of 1914: how it came to be in France at all, the long years of intrigue and preparation that preceded its departure, and what happened to it in four short months of total war. Robin Neillands uses a wealth of first-hand accounts, and his great experience in bringing military history alive, to take the reader on a gripping and horrific journey to the battlefields of First World War France." Light browning to edges of textblock, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, slight cigarette odor. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling/creases, very light rubbing.
