What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first edition of this astounding novella by H. E. Bates, a tale of the sea dealing with the impact of war's heroics and the futility of war as a boy goes on a short, bloody voyage off the coast of England. An exciting and dramatic story filled with humour and humanity of the common man.
