Product description

The top, front and bottom edges are foxed as are the first and last free endpapers. Otherwise the book is in very good condition with clean, unmarked text. The dust jacket spine is sunned and its inner flaps are foxed.

The memoirs of Clare Hollingworth, frontline reporter who worked on equal terms with men in a tough, dangerous profession. The book is being published 50 years after she sent back her first despatches from Poland as German tanks rolled in. She lived in Peking after the cultural revolution, and during the Algerian war she went alone into the dangerous Casbah in Algiers. She pursued and finally broke the story of Kim Philby when no one believed that he was the third man and had vanished to Russia.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
