Old Soldiers Never Die

£14.99

Product description

Frank Richards, born in 1883 in Monmouthshire, orphaned at nine years old, was brought up by his aunt and uncle in the industrial Blaina area, and went on to work as a coal miner throughout the 1890s before joining the Royal Welch Fusiliers in 1901. A veteran soldier who served in British India and many areas of the Western Front, he wrote his seminal account of the Great War from the standpoint of the common soldier, Old Soldiers Never Die, in 1933. This was followed by Old Soldier Sahib, a memoir of his time serving in British India, in 1936. He died in 1961.
Mild toning to text block edges, slight sunning to the dust jacket spine and small chips to dust jacket edges in a few places. However, all text is clear on clean pages, the binding is tight and the dust jacket remains bright and glossy.
A scarce gem.
