Harlequin Authors Part XVII - Thomas H. Raddall (3)

Canadian author Thomas H. Raddall's third Harlequin edition is His Majesty's Yankees, his first novel, published in 1942 (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart). Even at 320 pages, like the second, the third is silently abridged.

The Popular edition below is some 40% longer than the Harlequin. It isn't dated but the young miss looks 1960s rather than 1760s and the flag on the cover puts it after 1965. The back cover blurb ("FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK") is wrong but it may be the first unabridged paperback edition.
