The Future of Infantry.London, Faber & Faber Limited, 1933 Stock Code: 105711
NotesFirst edition, second state. The first in Faber's short-lived Art of War series; the only other title was Fuller's Generalship of the same year. In a short piece adapted from a lecture given at Southern Command in the winter of 1931 the author argues that, following the horrors of the First World War, the infantry still have a future role of "usefulness and dignity" as a "corps d'élite of 'field craftsmen'". Uncommon in the jacket.
Small octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine black. With the dust jacket.
Light foxing to edges; an excellent, bright copy in the jacket with toned spine, front panel with short closed tear to foot and small patch of abrasion to head.
