First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. In this stirring account of the last 750 days of WWII, the author's underlying theme is essentially the chaos imposed on Europe by Roosevelt's obsession that Russia should become a partner in a post-war Grand Alliance, a belief that led to the permanent enslavement of over 100 million people behind the 'Iron Curtain' that Churchill foresaw; a war that only Josef Stalin, with Allied complicity, was to win.

A Drop Too Many, Frost, John
13 Frost, John A Drop Too Many
Herndon, Virginia, U.S.A. Cassell 1980 0304307173 / 9780304307173 First Edition Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. Illustrated. No one who has read of Arnhem can have failed to have been inspired by gallantry of the 2nd Parachute Regiment, which held the north end of the key road bridge over the Rhine not for 24 hours for which it was equipped, but for 3 days and 4 nights. Commanded by the then Lt-Col Frost, they beat off repeated armoured and infantry assaults by far greater numbers, until forced out of the ruined and burning positions by losses, lack of ammunition, and the failure of the whole Arnhem operation. Their sacrifice stands as one of the most heroic defences of all time. General Frost's story is, in effect, that of the battalion. His tale starts with the Iraq Levies and goes on the major airborne operations in which he took part - Bruneval, Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, Arnhem - and continues with his experiences as a prisoner and the reconstruction of the battalion after the German surrender. Though written with modesty and humour, the book is shot through with the fire and determination of the fighting solider, and throws important new light on many controversies, not only those of Arnhem. This book is a major contribution to the literature of the last war. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
