ID: 2454
A Subaltern on the Somme in 1916
[Max Plowman] "Mark VII"

Category: First Edition

London, Dent. 1927.


First edition, 8vo, original pictorial cloth boards and dust jacket. Regarded as a classic account of life in the trenches during World War I, Plowman evokes a deeply personal account of the Battle of the Somme, during which his own battalion in real life, the 10th West Yorkshires, suffered among the highest casualties loosing nigh on half their men in a single day. Wounded and sent home in 1917, Plowman went on to become a pacifist and conscientious objector and spent time in prison for his beliefs after the War. A very good copy with a small damp-stain to the upper edge of the rear end paper, browning to end papers. The very scarce dust jacket is toned to the spine, small tear upper edge lower panel and some damp-staining to the top edges.

Price £1000.00
