LoveReading View on The General

As relevant as when it was first published, Michael Foreman’s very first book is beautifully reissued in this edition. General Jodpur loves to train his soldiers making them the best fighting force in the world. But, one day, he discovers the beauty of the countryside and realises that saving the flowers and trees and creatures who live in them is more important than fighting. An important message delivered in striking pictures.
