On the side of the Angels

First World War | Newly Arrived Through the Bookshop Door

Hodder & Stoughton, 1915. Soft cover. Condition: Poor. Possibly  1st Edition. Reviewed as "A fine  piece of jingoistic spiritualism in which a tabloid rhymester takes on the journalist Arthur Machen to argue that the mythical angels of Mons were real enough for true patriots. Harold Bergbie churned out Kiplingesque poems throughout the war and has been frequently anthologised for capturing the anti-Hun sentiment of the popular press." Spine badly damaged, fly leaf cut in half.
