Blood Sisters: The Hidden Lives of the Women Behind the Wars of the Roses
Blood Sisters: The Hidden Lives of the Women Behind the Wars of the Roses
Price: £4.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiesty women!, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book, I've been interested in the "Cousins War" for some time, but this book brought together the stories
of a remarkable group of women. I'd read of them individually, but this put them very much more in context.
Well and clearly written and I ended up thankful that I'd not been around at the time to cross them.

4.0 out of 5 stars What fun to have a Henry IX, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I very much enjoyed the first of this series, it being a very interesting idea.
The book is well written and one is never quite sure how the plot will unfold.
My only carp is the choice of names for the main characters, neither sound very English. I understand the writer's reasons for
this, but they tend to jar.
Very much looking forward to the final volume of the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty did more than I thought, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well researched and new to me for I believed that the British part of the Battle of the Bulge was very slight, apart from ensuring
that the Germans would be unable to cross the Meuse.
We've been frequently told of Montgomery's arrival in a Union Flag bedecked Rolls Royce at US HQ, but then he drifts out of the story.
However, it turns out that he didn't do half bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great writer, 7 Dec. 2013

I haven't read any Duggan for decades, but thanks to my Kindle I was able to reacquaint myself with his wonderful writing.
Alfred Duggan has a knowledge and feel for history that many writers of this genre lack.

This is a very entertaining novel which also fills one in with details of an area of World War II which most of us
will be unfamiliar with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super buy, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am delighted with my purchase and; without doubt, Amazon customer service is the best I've come across.
The Kindle Fire looks good and works better.
Thanks to the Kindles I've had my reading level has increased fifty percent because it is so light and convenient and the choice
of reading matter is so varied it's like being in library wonderland.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read for those interested in military, or in this case, naval flying., 17 July 2013

This review is from: Flying Low (Kindle Edition)
Bryans tells a great tale. This book is a treasure trove of stories both funny and tragic. Some of the statistics he provides are very sobering.

Great stuff, I enjoyed every page and was very sorry to come to the last one.
Fortier flew both P-47's and P-51's and comes up with some very interesting stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a pity Neillands has passed on!, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Robin Neillands was one of the finest military historians of modern times. He is capable of making the most complicated of situations understandable, and it doesn't get more complicated than the Wars of the Roses.


If Germany Won World War II
If Germany Won World War II
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well conceived and probably fairly accurate - but who could tell, unless the nightmare had occurred. Perhaps someone from a parallel universe may turn up to let us know.
