Epitaph For Lemmings.

by Simon. Harvester

Publication: The Macmillan Company, 1944, New York

First U.S. edition. Faint soiling to cloth and spine lightly darkened, else very good tight copy in dust jacket with one small closed tear to bottom edge of front panel. Pseudonym of Henry (St. John Clair Rumbold) Gibbs. [1909-1975]. In the winter of 1941, secret stores of food for the starving English are being methodically destroyed by saboteurs. Schooled in the art of guerrilla warfare, Stephen Murray is assigned to a counter-espionage group, tasked with discovering the means and methods of the saboteurs before the people of England face actual starvation. The lemmings of this lively tale of espionage are the German agents in Britain during WWII. Fast-paced action.
