How it works


Lovat Dickson & Thompson, London, 1935. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good + blue cloth. Very good clipped dust Jacket with slight wear to the heads of spine. Inside of the jacket has been reinforced. Boards undamaged. 279pp.  Frontis and numerous b/w plates. Git inscription on front free end paper. Some tanning to the endpapers. Solid copy.

Besides his experiences in the service, the author gives an authentic account of the Revolutionary strike at Johannesburg in 1922, a disastrous and bloodthirsty affair which almost led to the establishment of a Soviet form of Government. Col. Godley's reminiscences cover a period of continuous service with the Police Force from 1896 to 1921, and the author came into contact with all the most prominent personalities of that period.
