First edition of this collection of short stories. "It is difficult to make a volume of short stories homogeneous , but these have this in common, that they concern themselves with war and sport-a fact which may commend them to the temper of the times. Such as they are, I have chosen them as the fittest survivors out of the tales which I have written during the last six years."
