Tan buckram, lettered in black. Light shelf/handling wear, with a slight indentation along top front edge and another along top rear edge that shows closed tear extending approx. 1/2" into underboard. Both covers moderately foxed, typical of this issue, with internal foxing to the first and final several leaves. Firm binding, intact interior except for one illustration neatly clipped on pg. 9, resulting in an approx. 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" area of loss in the middle of that leaf (thus affecting text on p. 10). Occasional light offsetting found in margins through text block from adjacent photographic plates. 344 pp., illustrated w/ b&w photographs. Pictorial dust jacket lightly rubbed at corners and along flap folds, with 1" closed tear at base of front flap fold, a few short (1/4" or less) closed edge tears, and irregular crescent of loss along bottom rear edge extending about 7 1/2" and partially into heel of spine panel, approx. 1 1/4" at its deepest, now in mylar, technically Good only due to this defect but still presenting well, with an intact front panel. This copy also has an interesting provenance, as the leaf preceding half-title shows signature of Alvin Jones (d. 1998), of the 327th Glider Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division, who participated in D-Day and was involved in Operation Market-Garden in Holland, the largest airborne operation in the history of the war. While fighting in the Battle of the Bulge, Jones received on Dec. 22, 1944, the German written demand for his division to surrender. He took the message to division headquarters, where it was received by Gen. McAuliffe, who gave the famous reply "Nuts."
