From The City From The Plough by Alexander Baron (Hardback, 1948) 1st Ed/2nd Imp

London: Jonathan Cape, 1948, first edition, second impression, hardback with jacket in protective sleeve. 

Alexander Baron (1917 – 1999) was a British author and screenwriter. He is probably best known for his highly acclaimed novel about D-Day entitled From the City from the Plough (1948) and his London novel The Lowlife (1963). 

From the City from the Plough is a novel about the fictional 5th Battalion of the Wessex Regiment British Army. The novel takes place in the weeks leading up to D Day and during the Normandy campaign. It was widely believed that the battalion was based on units of the 43rd Wessex Division and its attacks on Hill 112 and Mont Pincon in Normandy. This novel, now back in print, was the first of his Men, Women and War trilogy.
