In its unvarnished truth-telling, this book is a brilliant antidote to military romanticism of every sort. There is light shelf ware to the DJ and the top of the text block is tanned.

14 Mallinson, Allan The Making of the British Army. From the English Civil War to the War on Terror
UK. Bantam Press 2009 0593051084 / 9780593051085 2nd Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
This is the story of hard-won military experience: of campaigns with lines of communication that snaked through Africa, Asia; and of pitched battles in alien lands in which the odds were overwhelming, and where victory was snatched often by the narrowest of margins. From the Army's origins at the battle of Edgehill to the conflict in Afghanistan, this is history at its most relevant - and most dramatic... On page 80 I noticed a small tear which doesn't effect the reading of the book.

If any of Mill's eighteen-man sniper platoon had thought that at the people of Al Amarah were going to welcome them with open arms, they were rapidly forced to reconsider. For the next six months, isolated, besieged and under constant fire, the battalion refused to give an inch. Cimic House, their HQ, may have been a bombsite, but it was home. And its defence- the most the British Army had fought in fifty years - was a modern day Rork's Drift

UK Macdonald & C0 ( publishers ) Ltd 1961 1st Edition Hardcover Fair Poor Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
Fighting tanks are the most uncomfortable, unadaptable, unfragrant pieces of military equipment ever devised. they are expected to move on, fighting until they are blown up, burned out or shot to junk. There isn't a soft spot or a rounded corner anywhere aboard - inside or out. In this absorbing book - the first on the subject- the author tells the story of the tank's beginnings, of its role in World War 11, and its importance today. He recalls all the great tank battles and the men who fought them. The black boards show shelf wear and the text block shows heavy spotting to the page margins and edges. The DJ is torn and chipped and faded. Although not in the best of condition this is still a readable copy on this fascinating subject.
