Rafbók

“In the Ranks of the C.I.V.” is a 1900 account by Erskine Childers of his time spent as part of an artillery company in the South African Wars (1879–1915). This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the Boer War or British imperialism, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Childers's work. Contents include: “The 'Montfort'”, “Cape town and Stellenbosch”, “Piquetberg Road”, “Bloemfontein”, “Lindley”, “Bethlehem”, “Bultfontein”, “Slabbert's Nek And Fouriesberg”, “To Pretoria”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. Robert Erskine Childers (1870–1922) was a British-born Irish writer. Other notable works by this author include: “The Riddle of the Sands” (1903), “The Framework for Home Rule” (1911), and “War and the Arme Blanche” (1910).

    Hitta storyn som passar just dig

    Henrik Karlsson

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
