BOOK – MILITARY – THE ROAD TO BORDEAUX by DENIS FREEMAN & DOUGLAS COOPER – Signed Copy

  • £24.99


The Road to Bordeaux tells the true story of two Englishmen who signed up to help the French Army in the fight against the invading Germans in 1940 - this copy is signed with very personal dedications "To Madelaine" by both Denis Freeman and Douglas Cooper

It is a 1940 second impression, the first edition also being published in 1940 by The Cresset Press in London, it is a 408 page hardback without dustjacket, 7.5" (19cm) x 5" (12.5cm) x 2" (5cm) with a light brown/beige cloth cover and red lettering on the spine

The book is not in great condition, but not terrible either - the cover is a bit tired with the spine being sun-discoloured and there is some age related yellowing to the pages but no mildew etc - there are double page maps attached to both of the covers and although they are not loose, they have come adrift from the main part of the book showing the netting that holds the binding together, but overall the binding is ok and there are no torn, loose or missing pages

An extremely rare find being so nicely dedicated by both authors, it will make a fine addition to any military library
