A SOLDIER WITH THE ARABS

First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original blue cloth with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. Blue top-stain. Map endpapers. Illustrated with 26 black and white photographs and 26 maps. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with just a touch of pushing to the spine ends. The contents with toning to the endpapers and scattered foxing to the preliminary pages and occasionally to page edges are otherwise in very good order throughout.

Signed by Lieutenant-General Sir John Bagot Glubb in blue ink on the title page "Bagot Glubb / 14: Nov. 1957". An account of Glubb's role in training and leading Transjordan's Arab Legion between 1939 and 1956 as its commanding general. Known as Glubb Pasha, he transformed the Legion into the best-trained force in the Arab world, as demonstrated by its successes during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
