The book was first published in 1971, and was immediately hailed as a classic of military history. It has remained in print ever since, and is now available as a Penguin paperback at £9.99 and a hardback from Pen & Sword at £25.00. Unlike the modern Allen Lane books, which are effectively Penguin paperbacks bound into hard covers, our 1983 copy is a proper sewn hardback.
