Steinbeck, John - Once There Was a War - ( Item 127436 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2013. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. The first illustrated edition of Steinbeck’s absorbing dispatches for the New York Herald Tribune. Bound in buckram. Introduced by Janine di Giovanni. Printed with a photograph of Ground Crews of the 324th Bomb Squadron, 26 February 1944. Set in Haarlemmer with Scotch Roman display. 224 pages. Frontispiece and 12 black & white plates. Book size: 9" x 6¼". In 1943 John Steinbeck joined the New York Herald Tribune as a war correspondent. He was a celebrated novelist, but a novice reporter, keen to adapt his skills to the task ahead. Attached to a programme in which small units of American soldiers raided Mediterranean beaches, he travelled first to England, where he recorded the experiences of soldiers and civilians, writing from troopships, bomber stations, army bases and from London during the Blitz. In North Africa, he watched the soldiers as they trained for action in Italy, before boarding a Landing Craft Infantry with them and reporting from the battlefield itself.
