Edited and with an introduction by Ernest Hemingway, this is one of the more scarce of the author's wartime publications. The book went quickly out of print during the war years as it was a great favorite of many G. Stories included are by Hemingway, Crane, Lawrence, Churchill, Faulkner, Kipling, Forester and others.
I list usually only signed books which have a solid, certain provenance. Moreover, I couldn't find out who Robert (Bob) Spencer was.The item "ERNEST HEMINGWAY, MEN AT WAR, 1ST/1ST, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED" is in sale since Sunday, February 14, 2021.
