The Times History of The War, volumes I and XI

£19.99

Product description

From the preface: The Times History of the War has been framed with the object of producing an account of the great contest now in progress, which shall be at once popular and authoritative. In other words, while striving to be popular in the best sense of the word, and endeavouring to discuss the political factors which have led up to the crisis, and the military operations of the war in a manner which will prove useful to those who have not hitherto followed European policy with any very close attention, this history will also aim at securing a genuine position as a work of reference. It will be an account written by men of great experience in political, military and naval matters, and will contain a great deal of first-hand material which will be really valuable to historians of the future.

This work was issued in weekly parts, with thirteen parts forming a volume.

Volume I, 516 pages - chapter I Political Antecedents to the War to chapter XXIX The Russian Army at the Outbreak of War.
Volume XI, 512 pages - chapter CLXVII Belgium under German Rule: September, 1914 - October, 1916 to chapter CLXXX The German Peace Campaign of December 1916

2 hard back books bound in leather and red boards. No dust jackets. The covers show wear, especially to the leather. The spines of both volumes have been repaired with adhesive tape. The lettering and decoration on the spines and front covers is still in good condition. Volume 1 has a pencil annotation on the title page (pictured), but otherwise the pages, although slightly tanned, are in very good condition with no damage and clean text and illustrations.
