Hardcover. A prophetic novel , originally titled What Happened to the Corbetts. and written before World War II broke out in 1939, and before German bombs fell on London and England's south, but partly as a protest against the preparations being made by the English authorities (they were focusing on possibly gas attacks, rather than on the more mundane but likely effects of loss of phones, gas, electricity, water and other services modern life has come to depend upon.) Described as "not so much a study of war as of the human spirit, of its infinite capacity to endure and to re-shape the world to its destiny." 280 pp plus an author's note. Very good in dark blue cloth with gilt lettering, dark blue tinting to top edge (sunning to the spine.) .
