Detailed Product Description
UK, 1960, 1st edition. 272 pp, map.

But largely the little hill-station of Lansdowne in the United Provinces, the home and depot of his regiment where he shrewdly observed the snobbery and customs and characters of Anglo-Indian society and the regiment.Book is Fine, except for a non author presentation on the FEP, DJ is Near Fine, no chips.
