    In this auction you may bid for two paperback books about the Great War.

    'Trench Warfare' is part of Tony Ashworth's 'Grand Strategy' series and covers the rather large amount of learning eventually absorbed by the British Army during 1914-18.

    Max Arthur's 'When this Bloody War is Over' is a volume of squaddy songs from the era, with some famous old favourites and some that were new to me ('The ASC to the War have gone', 'My little wet hole in the trench'. It's illustrated with some very nice contemporary pen and ink drawings.


    The lot includes postage to UK or BFPO address.


    The auction will run until
    Friday, 7th September at 1800 hours (UK Time)



    All proceeds to Holidays4Heroes.

    Just a little bump. This year we've sent over 200 families on holiday already; next year the need will be the same!
