I bought this because I really enjoyed 'Slogging the Slavs' bby the same author. Great! A new installment thought I.
So, got the book, sat down in my special reading chair with my special reading coffee and with the book hat on and dived in to page one. Hmm, seems familiar. Skip forward a bit, yep definitely looks familiar. I thought I'd accidentally bought a book I already owned. (It's amazing how often I do this)
But a quick trip to the shelves and I found my copy of Slogging the Slavs, checked the blurb on the back, snap. Check page one, snap. Check table of contents, snap.
So, this is the same book under a different name and I don't think Amazon have made this clear enough. It's a good book, but I only want to read it once. let alone own it once... I can only assume that the name was changed to be a bit less aggressive to slavic people. (This would annoy Richard Littlejohn though, so we're all in favour of that)
Seriously, this is 'Slogging the Slavs' under a different name and no-one is very keen to point that out, a bit under-hand.
I'm reduced to selling my extra copy on ebay for near full price so as you can imagine, I'm livid.
