Item #13902 THE STORY OF BRITISH PRISONERS. "prefaced, annotated by"


London: Central Committee for National Patriotic Organizations, n.d. [1915]. Original light brown wrappers.

First Edition. This propaganda pamphlet, describing the Germans' treatment of British prisoners of war, was circulated in an effort to win over countries remaining neutral. Included are many specific examples. Doyle observes in his Foreword,

Never again in our time will a German visitor be welcome to our country... A deep fissure will divide the two races, and this fissure will be kept open by our abiding remembrance of the foul methods by which the Germans have conducted the war... These methods can only be characterised as methods of systematic murder.

This copy is near-fine (a trace of wear along the spine, and as usual a vertical crease that reflects its original mailing). Green & Gibson C19. Item #13902

Price: $250.00
