Further Details

Described by the publishers as ‘the first official history, at least in modern times, to approach the subject of home defence from an inter-service aspect’. Many fold-out and other maps, all in excellent condition, and a map in the rear pocket in similar condition. 435 pages plus appendices and Index. Octavo/quarto boundaries in size (252 mm). Condition: A little edge wear to the dust jacket with some staining to the spine; the book has a little bumping to corners of boards. Overall a very good copy in a good dust jacket, from a private collection.
