First and only edition, first impression, of Barbara Wertheim Tuchman's first book, written while she was reporting on the Spanish Civil War for The Nation. The work is now highly uncommon in commerce in this condition.
Tuchman (1912-1989) was a prominent American popular historian and twice the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Guns of August (1963) and Stilwell and the American Experience in China (1972).
Octavo. Original white card wrappers printed in blue and black, illustrated endpapers. Housed in a custom blue cloth solander box.
wrappers creased on spine and slightly rubbed and marked overall, edges toned, light foxing to prelims, but a very good and notably tight copy of a fragile publication.
