Product description

Guilty Men - "Cato" (Michael Foot, Frank Owen, Peter Howard) (1940) - WW2 political book
 
"Cato", "Guilty Men" (London, Victor Gollancz Ltd, first published July 1940; seventeenth impression, August 1940). Vintage hardback political book (blue cloth boards), 125pp, measuring approximately 13 x 18.9 x 1.5cm (5.1 x 7.45 x 0.6in). Written during the first year of the Second World War by journalists Michael Foot (a future Leader of the UK Labour Party), Frank Owen and Peter Howard, although published under the pseudonym "Cato", this polemical book attacks fifteen British public figures of the 1930s (including Prime Ministers Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain) for pursuing the ineffective policy of appeasement towards Nazi Germany, and for leaving Britain ill-prepared for conflict.
 
No dustjacket; there is some marking (including white speckling) and discoloration to the cover with some fading to the edges and spine, together with age wear including wear and bumping to edges and corners; the inside covers and front endpaper (there is no rear endpaper) are marked and discoloured with a small area of damp staining to the top right corner of the endpaper; the pages are discoloured with tanning to edges, foxing and other marks, and edge and corner wear including some corner creases. The book nonetheless remains complete and fully readable.
