With Prejudice, LORD TEDDER, Marshal of the Royal Air Force
4 LORD TEDDER, Marshal of the Royal Air Force With Prejudice
London Cassell 1966 First Edition / First Impression Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Unclipped dustwrapper. No marks or inscriptions. Gold lettering to spine. Extensively illustrated with photographs and maps. Nice copy in a slightly worn dustwrapper. In these memoirs, writes Lord Tedder, I mean to recall the course of events as I saw them. I shall be as objective as I feel it possible to be, but I have no intention of departing, for any reason, from my own honest opinion as to events and personalities. So often, people make great play about being completely unprejudiced. Frankly, I am completely prejudiced. Lord Tedder did not suffer fools gladly or in silence. But such was his integrity and his ability-and such his warm humanity-that his position was rarely challenged. With Prejudice is the last of the really great 1939 to 1945 memoirs. It endorses what history has already shown: that Lord Tedder ranks high indeed among British commanders of the Second World War. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing unless otherwise clearly stated.
