Six new volumes of "Daily Telegraph War Books" are issued

by Messrs. Hodder and Stoughton (1s. net each). By far the most interesting is In the Firing Line, compiled by A. St. John Adcock from the picturesque letters of our soldiers and sailors at the front.—With this we may mention a similar compilation, Atkins at War, by J. A. Kilpatrick (Herbert Jenkins, ls. net.)—The other volumes include A Scrap of Paper, by Dr. E. J. Dillon, giving the inner history of German diplomacy; How the Nations Waged War, by J. M. Kennedy ; The Red Cross in War, by Mary F. Billington ; British Regiments at the Front, by R. Hodder ; and Forty Years After, a sketch of the war of 1870 by H. C. Bailey.
