5.0 out of 5 stars A Balanced and Authoritive Account of a British Regiment in the American War of Independence, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fusiliers (Kindle Edition)
The story of the American War of Independence written from the point of view of one of the most active units on the British side. This is NOT the story of idiots in red coats led by fools but of a unit, warts and all, that soon adapted to conditions and became very effective. It is well researched and referenced, containing a wide selection of personal experiences and yet, despite the scholarly approach, is a good read to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Old Fashioned Hero, 15 May 2013

This review is from: Ramage (Kindle Edition)
Basically I like Ramage as a person, He is a young man from a priviledged background, however one that comes with more than its share of problems for the aspiring naval officer. Bold and courageous, with the ability to think quickly he also displays self doubt and concern for his crew. The romantic interest is just that, Ramage behaves like the gentleman he was brought up to be, and whilst we get a glimpse of his deeper feelings they do not dominate the storyline. A fast moving storyline kept me hooked and Dudley Popes details brought the book to life.


The Significance of Monuments: On the Shaping of Human Experience in Neolithic and Bronze Age Europe
The Significance of Monuments: On the Shaping of Human Experience in Neolithic and Bronze Age Europe
by Richard Bradley
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £82.21

4.0 out of 5 stars A thought provoking analysis of monuments in the Neolithic, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Richard Bradley has some excellent ideas on the form and use of monuments in both the Early Neolithic and the Late Neolithic/ Early Bronze Age transition. In some cases recent work has superceded the information available and the Middle Neolithic cursus monuments are not considered, possibly as they don't fall into the patterns that are proposed. The great strength of this book is that Richard Bradley goes well beyond a physical description of these monuments by providing a well reasoned discussion on the evolving ideas that shaped changes in the form of the monuments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rewards the hard work it takes to read, 3 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book betrays its age, it is long winded and dialogue very dated, however , do stick with it as there is a real insight into the French Indian Wars and the attitudes within the pre-revolutionary colonies. There's also a damn good story in there too!
