Thoroughly enjoyed this book about a little know episode of WW2 on the Russian front. Well written and researched.
Only disappointment was the quality of the maps on the Kindle edition (Had to use an atlas as they were impossible to see on the screen) However, this did not detract from the excellent and entertaining book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly enjoyed the book, 3 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, thoroughly enjoyed the book. Well written and researched and does dispel many of the myths of WW1 that are commonly held. Would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in WW1 history and it outlines very clearly why Britain had to go to war and the reasons behind some of the decisions to launch many of the offensives that cost so may lives. Great and easy read.

Very impressed with the noise cancellation qualities if the headphones. Only slight disappointment is that on long-haul flights they got a bit uncomfortable if keep on for over 5 hours. For the price and the noise cancelling quality, I have to give them 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed the book, 23 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed the book; I found it to be very well balanced and covered areas I never previously knew or understood about the lead up to the conflict. I found Jimmy Burns account very easy to follow & informative and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to better understand the Argentinian claim to the Islands and the subsequent conflict. An excellent an important book on the history and political aspects of the continued dispute.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and believe it goes a long way to rectify some of the misconceptions of the British soldiers & the key role they played in the liberation of South America. Well researched & written.

The Feast of the Goat
The Feast of the Goat
Price: £4.79

4.0 out of 5 stars The Feast of the Goat, 16 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, very enjoyable book, especially after visiting the Dominican Republic. The ghost of Trujillo is still very much alive in DR and this book helped explain a lot of things when working with Government/ military personnel. Though it is a novel, much of the facts about the Trujillo era are based on fact and events thta took place during the 30 year dictatorship. Would recommend, a good read.
