2.0 out of 5 stars Character Assasination, 22 Jun 2013
What a shame that the author decided to slant her book into a character assassination of Mountbatton. Colliers book Freedom at Midnight gives a much more balanced view of events. Unfortunately iit's not available in Kindle! For all that the book is well written and worth reading if you take the auhor's rather snide comments about Mountbatton with a pinch of Gandhi's tax free salt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing Read, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cruel Britannia is one of the most disturbing books I have read. It catalogues the abuse by British interrogators during the Second World War, the Cold War, the colonial period, scientific advances, Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan and rendition where British subjects were kidnapped, taken to a third country and tortured.It also exmines the cover ups by both major political parties over the last 75 years to ensure that this practice could continue in defiance of the Geneva Convention and the European Court of Human Rights. It is uncomfortable reading especially when the excuse given is that "It's for our own good!" Not in my name it's not and I write as an ex soldier who took part in some of these conflicts.
The perpetrators should be tried as war criminals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle light, 14 Feb 2012
I really like this product over others that I have tried for the simple reason that it is flexible for me to see the kindle while turning the light away from my wife's side of the bed and therefore escape ear ache for waking her up!
