4.0 out of 5 stars Daniel - The Vietnam War with an interesting twist!, 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daniel (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book, having read a lot of books on the Vietnam era both factual and fiction this is a diversion from the usual storylines. Set on a Firebase at the back end of the war, it captures the atmosphere of a backwater unit waiting for the call to leave and head "back to the world". However, things change and the plots weaves around the central characters and how Daniel affects each of them. An enjoyable read with a great twist at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read about a little covered subject., 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read about a little covered area of Vietnam combat flying but one that misses the opportunity it has to examine it in depth. If it has the detail that Chickenhawk has about flying Hueys it would be a reference point for combat flying. Some minor grammatical errors throughout but this doesn't detract from the flow of the book. The author plays down what must have been a challenging aircraft to fly in a hostile environment not on just one tour but on two! Recommended if you like an book about combat operational flying with the personal side of living a combat tour running alongside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on a difficult conflict., 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read a lot on the subject of Vietnam, I have moved onto the Russian conflict in Afghanistan and it is compulsive reading. Covering the conflict from the political angle as well as the from the view point of the soldiers on the ground it paints a grim picture of life in a country that refuses to be oppressed or occupied. Detailed and well researched, it is easy to read and gives a balanced view of both sides of the conflict. Recommended.


Low Level Hell
Low Level Hell
by Hugh Mills
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Low Level Hell = High Level Read, 1 Dec 2013
This review is from: Low Level Hell (Paperback)
Hugh Mills writes about a role often seen but seldom explored in the Low Level Hell. A book about the Scout Helicopters used in Vietnam to smoke out and destroy the Viet Cong and NVA regulars is a gripping read and Mills explains it in a clear and honest way. The attitude to flying in that era is brought home by the care free attitude to airframes with the pilots sometimes going through 2 or 3 a day as they execute their duties. A great read and if you are in to this era of warfare it will fill a hole in your understanding of how the war was fought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Battery charger, 21 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Required a new battery charger for our kart (Rotax Max) which requires as 12v Motorbike battery and this is an excellent bit of kit. Simply connect it and it tells you what you need to know (in our case it confirmed our suspicions that our battery was knackered!!) Put the new one on charge and it is excellent. It checks the state, decides what the battery needs and just does it. Great display showing the voltage etc. Can't fault it really.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Introduction to Child Development by G C Davenport, 11 Jan 2003
I have found this book invaluable for my studies on the Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies. It is very easily understood with plenty of diagrams and pictures to break up the text.
It has been especially useful for detailed information on the major child development theorists such as Piaget, Bruner and Skinner etc.
I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to study theorists but is finding it all rather baffling. This book makes it all a lot clearer with just about the right amount of depth.
