Año de publicación: 1944

Quarto. Original black sand-grained cloth with Eighth Army insignia and name to the upper board, cream textured endpapers. Just a little rubbed, overall very good. First edition, extremely uncommon. COPAC records just one copy, that presented to the Imperial War Museum by Montgomery himself, and two similar items also at the IWM, bound up from original copies of the messages, OCLC adds a copy at the Legermuseum, Delft. Monty's personal messages to the troops have been seen as a significant component in the creation of the legendary morale of the Eighth Army. As Freddie de Guingand says in his Foreword; "This collection traces the journeys of this great fighting force over what was perhaps, up to the present time, the most eventful part of the war; from El Alamein to the capture of Ortona in Italy. These messages were always eagerly look forward to by the troops and fostered the spirit and the will-to-win that made the Eighth Army such a great and happy family.". N° de ref. de la librería 73630
