Notes

First edition, signed copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Dorina Lockhart Neave, 26 April 1937". The terrible four-month siege of Kut in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, "was, arguably, Britain's worse military defeat since the surrender of Cornwallis's army in 1781 during the American Revolutionary War" (Patrick Crowley, Kut 1916: Courage and Failure in Iraq, 2009).
