Hardback. The relentless force of military law - the stranger-than-fiction drama of famous courts martial. The drama of the court scene appeals to most people; and this book contains an extra element of interest in that it deals with trials not in civilian but military courts. Outstanding among the notorious criminals who come to life again in these pages are Emmett-Dunne, the sergeant who was tried for the murder of one of his comrades; Lt. Baillie-Stewart, who was imprisoned in the Tower before his trial; and Pte. Linsell, whose conviction for the murder of a German policeman caused a public outcry and much distortion of the facts in the press. A fascinating and unusual book written with the authority of long experience by the author in military courts. Illus. With Bibliog. 216pp. 8vo. h/back. V. sl. fading to head/tail of sp. o/w Vg. in sl. frayed Vg. pcdw
