A colossal piece of history well acted and well produced, another piece of history showing the appalling waste of life by the government of France who could not contain it's ambitions for total European dominance, thankfully the Iron Duke together with the Prussians sorted Napoleon out once and for all.

An excellent movie, well acted by true professionals and it showed without doubt the appalling waste of life brought about by the American Civil War. I personally have always been a staunch supporter of the Southern States and I still believe that the wrong side won. God bless the Confederacy

This movie shows what a heartless pack of fools Politicians and Generals can be when and while they are throwing away a mans life for the sake of their own vanity and ego.


Universe
Universe
by Robert Dinwiddie
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars My opinion of the Universe, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Universe (Paperback)
The Universe is a very heavy reading book and to expect any sort of a review on it when I have only had the book for two or three weeks is out of the question. This book will take weeks to read as a lot of the reading is referred to other pages for clarification.
The delivery and condition of the book was excellent, wonderful value indeed.
