The Story of the Malakand Field Force: an Episode of Frontier War, with Maps, Plans Etc.

£34.99

Product description

This, the author's first published work of non-fiction, describes a military campaign by the British army on the North West Frontier (now western Pakistan and eastern Afghanistan) in 1897. It is dedicated to General Bindon Blood.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (1874–1965) was a British politician, army officer, and writer. As prime minister of the United Kingdom (1940 to 1945) he led Britain to victory in the Second World War, and was again Prime Minister from 1951 to 1955. Ideologically an economic liberal and imperialist, for most of his career he was a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but from 1904 to 1924 was a member of the Liberal Party.

Our book is in good condition considering its 100+ years, bound in blue cloth with title etc in gilt lettering on the spine (slightly worn). The exterior shows wear consistent with age - bumped corners, some shelf wear to top & tail of spine, a few small marks on the covers - but no frank damage. Inside, the decorated end-papers are intact, the front paste-down with a rectangular brown mark indicating a previous label, the front fep quite browned; the back end-paper similarly browned, and a small pencil note at the top of the back paste-down. Spine cracked at final page, with webbing visible (see photo). Binding otherwise firm with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright. 2 folded maps present and undamaged. Frontispiece B/W photo of Sir Bindon Blood present.
