The German Enigma, Bourdon, Georges
1 Bourdon, Georges The German Enigma
London Dent 1914 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Book 
First edition. The work of Monsieur Bourdon is not only a good book, it is also a brave deed, for other French publicists had adopted an ostrich policy of reticence, a cowardly policy of mental reservation. The German Enigma of Monsieur Bourdon is mainly an objective, impartial, and impersonal study, and the author has been careful not to obtrude his own private views. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.

Impacts of War 1914 & 1918, Terraine, John
10 Terraine, John Impacts of War 1914 & 1918
London Hutchinson 1970 First Edition Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. Nice and clean internally and externally. John Terraine writes: `The impacts of war are limitless, and in many respects unfathomable. In the First World War, four broad levels of impact upon Britain may be discerned: impact upon the soldiers and sailors in the battle line - the severest of all; impact upon the military leaders (the generals above all) who directed them - this also could be severe; impact upon politicians who directed the generals and admirals - and here the serverities begin to change their substance; impact upon the people whom the politicians represented - this is where generalisation must always be taken with large pinches of salt. The patriotic widow who loses all her sons is a part of Public Opinion; so is the Conscientious Objector; so is the profiteer. One cannot make 40 million separate statements; yet one cannot ignore the weight of Public Opinion in a democracy merely because it is bound to be diverse. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
