History of the Second World War: The Mediterranean and Middle East (Vol VI Part II)

£100.00

Product description

The British Official History of sea, land and air operations in the Mediterranean and Middle East during World War II, published by Her Majestery's Stationery Office, ran to 6 volumes, this final one being in 3 parts. A massively-detailed account, this must be THE reference resource for any student of the history of the war - it is illustrated with many detailed maps and tables as well as pages of very dense text. This particular volume deals with the campaigns and struggle in northern Italy and the Adriatic.

General Sir William Godfrey Fothergill Jackson, GBE, KCB, MC & Bar (1917–1999) was a British Army officer, military historian, author and Governor of Gibraltar. Commissioned into the Royal Engineers in 1937, he served with the British Army in Norway during the Second World War, and was one of the first British officers to engage the enemy. His work in blowing up bridges as the British retreated from Lillehammer earned him his first Military Cross (MC). He also served in North Africa, Sicily and Italy during the war. He won a Bar to his MC in 1944 at the Battle of Monte Cassino in recognition of "gallant and distinguished services", and by the end of the war was an Acting Major (formally promoted Captain in August 1945, and mentioned in despatches). His military career took a steadily upward path after the war, and he was knighted in 1971.

Our book is in very nice condition, protected by a dust jacket which shows only minor signs of wear - some edge wear, and creasing at corners. The book itself, bound in mid-green cloth with title etc in gilt lettering on a black panel on the spine, is almost 'as new', with some very minor shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine, and minimal bumping of top corners. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages, all pages clean and bright, all folding maps & tables present, and erratum slip laid in. The bottom R/H corner of the text block does show some bending of page corners, mainly due to the interleaved maps which are not as wide as the full page size.
