From the cover: “George was born into a world of village cricket matches and fox-hunting, but his failing income and the onset of war threatens his way of life. A touching depiction of pre-First World War Britain, Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man is also a coming-of-age story which follows George from a shy and awkward childhood, through shiftless adolescence, to an officer just beginning to understand the horrors of trench warfare. Written after Sassoon’s return from the First World War but looking back at happier times, Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man was published anonymously in 1928. Already established as a poet, this was Sassoon’s first attempt at fiction — and Faber’s first bestseller.”

Francis Warner's Poetry: A Critical Assessment by Glyn Pursglove (£11.50)Publisher: Colin Smythe — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0861402715]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: From the cover: “The poetry of Francis Warner is unlike that of any of his contemporaries in its blend of passion and scholarship. It is the work of a mind steeped in the great traditions of poetry — work that is learned and allusive, but simultaneously intense in its lyricism.

Glyn Pursglove, author of an earlier study of Warner’s plays Francis Warner and Tradition, provides a detailed account of this fascinating body of work, demon strating both its indebtedness to tradition and its profound originality. In a manner both scholarly and sensitive he clarifies the complex craftsmanship of Warner’s major poems and demonstrates the extraordinary formal inventiveness which characterizes so much of his work.

Central to Francis Warner’s achieve ment as a lyrical poet are several remarkable sequences of love poems. These are here afforded a poem-by-poem examination so that readers will find their pleasure in them enhanced by these meticulous and lively studies.

For all his attention to the detail of the poems, Glyn Pursglove does not neglect the larger themes that give continuity to Warner’s work. The reaffirmation of biblical and classical concepts of love — not just as a scholarly exercise but felt in the blood — is at the heart of all of his work as a poet and as a dramatist. It was perhaps inevitable that a poet so steeped in the lyrical forms of the Renaissance (the canzone, the madrigal, and above all the sonnet) should eventually turn his atten tion to Verse Drama. This study closes fittingly with two lengthy chapters de voted to Warner’s verse plays Moving Reflections and Living Creation, theatrical and poetic explorations of love and creativity set in the age of the Gospels, and Renaissance Florence.”

The West Wall by Charles Whiting (£11.50)Publisher: Spellmount — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1862270708]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. The Battle for Hitler's Siegfried Line. From the flap: “Adolf Hitler intended it to be the ultimate defender of his much vaunted 1,000-year Reich. Constructed in the utmost secrecy and at enormous cost, and dismissed by many as a ‘white elephant’, the ‘Great Wall of Germany’ very nearly lived up to the Fuhrer’s expectations, and is judged to have prolonged the war in Europe by six months. The Battle for the Siegfried Line was not only the most important of the 1944-45 campaign against Germany, it was to prove the key battle in the entire war in the west. It raged for six, long, bloody months along a front of 350 miles, and cost over a quarter of a million British, American, Canadian and French casualties.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight but with just a tint of toning at the margins of the leaves. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “The German capture of the supposedly impregnable Belgian fortress of Eben-Emael in May 1940 shocked the world, while the vaunted Maginot Line proved useless against an enemy who virtually ignored and bypassed it. As always, military planners had designed for the last rather than for the next war, ignoring the advances in tank and aircraft technology which had revolutionised warfare. Even the Germans fell into the same trap, building the Atlantic Wall and the Channel Island defences against invasion from the sea and the West Wall (the so-called ‘Siegfried Line’) against any possible invasion of Germany itself from the west. As a result, throughout the 1930s and ‘40s Western Europe was covered in deeply dug-in bunkers, artillery, machine-guns and anti-aircraft emplacements, observation and fire direction towers, underground magazines and other fortifications, a vast number of which survive to this day due either to their inherent strength or the work of preservation enthusiasts.

This book explores the history of modern fortifications from the 1870s, showing how designs changed radically to meet new threats, particularly in the form of artillery. It shows how some of the major forts fared in battle in both World Wars, and with the aid of dozens of clear maps and photographs, provides a detailed travel-guide for everyone wishing to explore their frequently well-preserved remains. Most are open to the public and many house museums, so opening times are also included. These defensive lines and positions, fashioned from steel and concrete, have stood idle now for over forty years yet still exercise a tremendous pull on the imagination. This book will thus be invaluable not only to students of fortifications but also to anyone touring France, Holland, Belgium, Germany or the Channel Islands.”

Regeneration by Pat Barker (£7.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1992Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0140123083]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the spine. Leans slightly. Description: A Later Printing. Number 1 in the series.

From the cover: “Craiglockhart War Hospital, Scotland, 1917, where army psychiatrist William Rivers is treating shell-shocked soldiers. Under his care are the poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, as well as mute Billy Prior, who is only able to communicate by means of pencil and paper.

Rivers’ job is to make the men in his charge healthy enough to fight. Yet the closer he gets to mending his patients’ minds the harder becomes every decision to send them back to the horrors of the front. Regeneration is a classic examination of how the traumas of war brutalised a generation of young men.”
