November 1918, The Last Act of Great War

London: Collins, 1981.

First Edition. Hardcover. Fine in a Very Good dust jacket. 461 pp + illustrations, with maps, bibliography, appendices, index, illustrated map endpapers. A fine copy in clean dust jacket with light shelf wear. "The final act of the Great War portrayed in this book spans the last hundred days of the conflict - from the surprise blow struck by the British at Amiens on 8 August, the 'Black Day of the German Army', down to the signing of the Armistice in the Forest of Compiégne which lowered the last curtain three months later. But Gordon Brook-Shepherd's vivid and masterly account is not simply another re-construction of that familiar contest on the Western Front; nor is it the purely military narrative" (dust jacket).
