Sir Edmund was obliged to accept several apparently unrewarding commissions before he returned to the 'establishment' in 1922 as Commandant of the Staff College. Orange boards, gilt title to spine. B/w photos. ISBN: 0850520770. Text block lightly browned. Lower corner crease to prelims. Pictorial dustwrapper is worn across top of rear panel with a few closed tears, scuffed.
