London, England: Private Eye Productions Ltd.. Very Good. 1993. Reprint. Softcover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0552139947 Paperback Here in his own words, John Major proves that he is his own man. His secret diary tells for the first time the inside story of his dizzy rise to power. Oh yes. In a style that has become renowed, John Major takes us through a not inconsiderably interesting period of recent history. From the leadership contest and Mrs. Thatcher's resignation to his unexpected occupation of Number Ten; through his partnership with Mr. Bush in the Gulf War to his heroically prudent negotiations at Maastricht. From the dark days of the recession to the satisfactory glorious victory at the General Election. Major the man comes in no samll measure alive along with his wife Norma, his chancellor Norma Lamaont, his friend Chris Patten, old Etonian Mr. Hurd, nice Mr. O'Donnell his oress secretary, the very famous Jeffrey Archer and all the others who in his judgement deserve a mention in his diary. Illustrated.(We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. Academic, Scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) ., Private Eye Productions Ltd., 1993, London: Elm Tree Books. Very Good/Very Good. 1980. First Edition. Hard Cover. Sm 4to 0241102723 Dust jacket complete except price clipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Numerous photographs and illustrations. 192 pages clean and tight. The Anglo-Boerwarof 1899-1902, `The Last of the Gentleman's Wars', was fought at the height of British Imperialism yet it took the vast force of the British Army three years of fighting, three monumental` sieges, and myriad battles with considerable loss of life, to overwhelm the Boers and achieve victory. The story of this war, its battles, its personalities its tragedies, the strengths and deficiencies of both sides, is presented in this book in a uniquely vivid way, seen through the eyes of a soldier at the front, writing in his diary in the trenches at night, while a parallel commentary supported by hundreds of photographs, maps, cartoons, 'poetry and ephemera records the history of the war as it was being fought elsewhere. Frederick Tucker was born in1875. The son of a lifeboatman, he was deserted by his mother during infancy. His childhood, spent with an aged grandmother was harsh, his schooling as scarce and, by-the time he was fourteen, he had enlistod in the army. His diary of the Boer War serves a dual purpose. Not only does it record the daily life of a private soldier at the front- the journey to South Africa, the hardship of marching, the monotony of the food, the men's growing and disquieting disillusionment in their superiors, admiration for comrades and, grudgingly, for Boers - it also provides a valuable insight into . the activities, prejudices and attitudes of the late Victorian era. As the diary chronicles one man's isolated. war so the parallel commentary supplies the reader with a more comprehensive-guide to the war. Designed to correspond accurately with what is happening in Private 7 ticker's world, the annotations provide a wealth of intelligent, researched facts, observations and asides. Illustrated with rare, fascinating and varied material this is an entertaining, informative and original approach to an often cumbersome subject, offering the reader a unique opportunity to appreciate the many diverse facets of warfare. ., Elm Tree Books, 1980
