No Man's Land
"Sapper" (pseud. Herman Cyril McNeile)

No Man's Land

New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1917. Reissue Hardcover in khaki colored cloth lettered and decorated in black and red. Color frontispiece. x+338 pp. plus publisher's ads at rear. Very good. No jacket. Collection of short stories about people, places and events of World War I. McNeile fought as part of the British Expeditionary Force beginning in late 1914 and took part in both Battles of Ypres and the Battle of the Somme and spent much of his time with the Royal Engineers (who were known as "Sappers", hence his chosen pen name). His stories were first serialized and gained a huge following; his collections of these stories ("No Man's Land" being one of these) were best sellers. In the 1920s, he turned to writing thrillers and created the character Bull-Dog Drummond, a WWI veteran and a "gentleman detective". Very Good Hardcover (Item ID: E22923)
