Notes

All first editions. A nice group of titles presented to the military historian Sir Francis Tuker by the author. The first inscribed, "To F.S. Tuker from B.H. Liddell Hart, January 1945"; the second with tipped-in one-page typed letter signed, "Dear Tuker", enclosing the book and noting that it was written in 1944 but not published until after the war and the "advent" of the atomic bomb, but this "seemed to cap its conclusions, rather than to call for any revision"; Strategy of Indirect Approach inscribed, "To FRancis Tuker in friendship & Admiration from Basil Liddell Hart"; and the last "To Francis from Basil L.H., May 1950". Tuker served with distinction in both World Wars, commanding the 4th Indian Division at El Alamein, in retirement he became a noted author publishing a study of the Gurkhas, for which he was awarded the Sykes medal by the Royal Central Asian Society, a life of Sleeman, and While Memory Serves, a highly-rated account of the last two years of British rule in India.
