2nd Afghan War: a poem by a soldier who took part.


Haxell, Edward Nelson: The March to Kandahar (as told by one of the rank and file). Dedicated with the utmost respect to General Lord Roberts V.C., K.C.B., Etc, Etc. Printed by J H Warden & Co [Hendon, N.W.]1893 4to. 8pp. Original thin card covers with printed title, detached because the original staples have rusted away. Advertisement for  Kilburn Bon Marché inside the back cover . A very unusual ephemeral survival dealing with the 2nd Afghan War. As Haxell implies in his title it is uncommon to find printed works on such wars by anyone other than the officers.     nov1/2
