The Life and Adventures of General Spooley.

Already a little tree with a glorious future in mind, our tree witnesses a Great War (Civil War) battle with a victorious Union Army. He decides that he wants to become a general, so he grows straight and tall. He is chosen for toy shop lumber and becomes the leader of 11 wooden soldiers for Tommy's Christmas. His excellent discipline and strategy ensure Tommy's victories, and even when some of his men are worn and lost, he is promoted to General and put in charge of a successful army of spools. Then as Tommy grows up, General Spooley helps him with his studies and accompanies him to his base, meeting the original General as an old man. A happy ending ensues for them both, unlike the fate of Andersen's tree. An odd, original book, by a military expert, with rather primitive but charming and colourful chromos, not in Hunt.
