In General: Various handling marks on both Covers but the Spine's Fine. A few pages between page forty-five and fifty-three have bends but they're nothing much.
Story: They're not kidding in their Blurb about this book as it's depressing to browse. The Russians, Chinese, crime groups, Nazis and Baddies of the world take over in England and other areas and set up their usual methods of population control with concentration camps and general other "methods". I wish people in the world would wake up to how things are really going. Again. The book's depressing to browse. Maybe it's better you don't buy the book.Seriously. 004956

Back Cover: A couple of creases and a couple of slide mark scuffing lines. The top left corner's creased about " - wide. Some slight wear's at the left and right edges.
In General: The pages are quite flexible and his Story's interesting with not much self - patting on his back for this or that the soldiers and sailors deserve credit for doing as usually they do all the heavy lifting everywhere and the "Boss" assumes credit for sitting in his comfy Offices while they get killed fighting. War isn't a pretty thing.
