3 Donald Hankey A Student in Arms (Second Series)
E.P. Dutton & Co. November 1917 B00APW7MHW Hardcover Used - Good 
7th American Printing (November 1917) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. ............... Donald William Alers Hankey (27 October 1884 – 12 October 1916) was an English soldier best known for two volumes of essays about the British volunteer army in World War I both titled A Student in Arms. At length, and not without misgivings, Donald was commissioned, finally joining the “Warwicks” infantry regiment, and returned to action. In the meantime Hankey was becoming an acclaimed, though as yet anonymous, author of a series of essays appearing in The Spectator under the nom de plume “A Student in Arms.” In essence, Hankey’s increasingly popular essays were a comprehensive meditation on how Britain’s citizen army was meeting the unprecedented challenge of war. In general, they fell somewhere between the jingoistic enthusiasm with which the Great War tended to be greeted at its outset and the bleak disillusionment so strikingly evident in the work of those writers who survived it. Modestly and thoughtfully, Hankey spoke of the ordinary soldiers’ common ordeal in terms that his readers at home found sobering but reassuring. In their day, collected in two volumes published in the spring of 1916 by Andrew Melrose and (posthumously) in 1917, the pieces that comprise A Student in Arms were received with what must be called gratitude; today they provide valuable insight into how the 1914-18 war appeared to many who, both as civilians and in the military, actually experienced it whether facing combat or waiting anxiously at home. It is not surprising that the later essays written by the “Student in Arms” during his second close-up view of war are significantly more sombre. Some, in fact, were rejected by the Spectator owing to their “change in tone.” The battle-tested Hankey’s sympathies for the increasingly younger officers and men become ever more acute; his confidence that their sacrifice will be sufficiently honoured grows less certain. His brief first-hand participation in the cataclysmic opening day of the Battle of the Somme and its sickening aftermath mark some of Hankey’s final letters with unmistakable signs of shock. After a short respite at an Army School behind the lines, Hankey was back in the trenches near Le Transloy. On 6 October, he wrote in calm resignation to his sister Hilda that heavy fighting was just ahead. It is part of the Hankey legend that as he and his men waited to go “over the top” at 1:30 on the afternoon of 12 October 1916, Lt Hankey was heard to tell them, “If you are wounded, ‘Blighty’; if killed, the Resurrection!” Hankey died in that attack and was buried near where he fell. That grave was never located, and his name appears on the huge Thiepval memorial to the 70,000 missing and unidentified dead who fought on the Somme.

Sophia Institute Press March 2015 1622822676 / 9781622822676 Soft Cover Used - Very Good 
Cover is clean and in good condition. No writing or marks observed in the text. Binding is tight and square. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 'The series is excellent but it is made more so with the nuggets of info in this guide. I found it particularly helpful to know which aspects of an episode where from Scripture and which had been 'added' by the script writers. The 'before you watch' and 'after you watch' sections for each episode are also useful. I like the challenge of some of the 'Go Forth and Evangelize' sections. Having a closing prayer section makes this book a good tool for groups to use.' -- M. Akers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . This beautiful, full-color viewer's guide offers everything you need to fully experience the A.D. The Bible Continues television series. In these pages you'll take an unforgettable journey through the Apostolic Age as it brings to life the dusty streets and crowded marketplaces through which Mary and the Apostles journeyed as they built the Church. For each episode you're given . . . -- A short essay with important historical and theological context. -- A detailed map that enables you to see where the Apostles journeyed or where important activities happened during the episode. -- Profiles so you know the role of each Biblical character. -- Pre- and post-viewing questions for family study, viewing parties or small group discussions. -- Definitions of words or terms you will hear in the episode but may not know. -- Connections to Scripture and to the lives and writings of the Saints. -- Ways in which you can use the principles in the episode to strengthen your own spiritual life. The Catholic Viewer's Guide is absolutely essential if you are to make the most of A.D. The Bible Continues. It's perfect for personal use, group discussions, family study, or small group sessions.
