Product description

Giles 1949 Annual Collectors' Limited Edition Facsimile [Paperback] [Jan 01, 1997]

When I was a very young and inexperienced combatant in the last war, Giles had a special meaning for me. Somehow, magically, he took the terror out of it all. His Hitler and Mussolini were wonderfully funny charicatures which cut those monsters down to size. Twenty-five years later, Giles was still tilting at windmills, cutting the pompous, the vain glorious and the self important down to their right proportions. Yet he does it without malice. Unlike the so called satirists, Giles pen never drops hate - it is just filled with honest to God, down to Earth, good humour. In a world filled with violence, his truly is one pen far mightier than the sword. (Michael Bentine: 1970)

Original edition published 1949, this facsimile edition printed 1997. Comes with hardback case with a softback book.
