Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed from the author, inscribed on the front free endpapeer: "For Louis Greenfield from Humphrey Cobb." Cobb's popular anti-war novel, set in the trenches of World War I, took its title from Gray's Elegy: "The paths of glory lead but to the grave". The book later served as the basis for the critically acclaimed 1957 film of the same name, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Kirk Douglas.
