Defeat into Victory

£24.99

Product description

Published in 1956 by Cassell and Company Ltd.

This is Field-Marshall Sir William Slim's account of how defeat in Burma by the Japanese was eventually turned into victory.
Extensively illustrated with some 21 fold out maps. This is a must for anyone interested in the Second World War in the East.

This is clearly a well read copy with some wear and tears on the dust jacket. The board covers are rubbed and lightly faded on their edges and spine. Although there is some light foxing on the page edges and a couple of the maps have been misfolded, all pages are complete and in a good clean condition.
