First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author “Hugh, in friendship, Julian, 30 November 1974” on the title-page. “Amery’s military career—most engagingly described in his autobiography, Approach March (1973)—was not highly successful, but it was adventurous, and adventure was something he craved. He was also of a highly romantic disposition, and so in the Balkans favoured the forces of General Mihailovic in Serbia—because they were loyal to the king—and of King Zog in Albania”. He spent much of the war in Egypt, and afterwards unsuccessfully attempted to shore up the failing regime of Chiang Kai-shek in China.

Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in silver, top edge green, buff endpapers. Photographic frontispiece and 8 similar plates. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with a short closed tear to head of front panel.
