Sweet William or the Butcher? The Duke of Cumberland and the '45
Sweet William or the Butcher? The Duke of Cumberland and the '45
Price: 9.26

1.0 out of 5 stars Fiction masquarading as fact, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not an unbiased account, the very opposite in fact, even in the introduction he states "alleged atrocities" glossing over confirmed evidence if it does not fit his opinion, such as documented evidence cumberland sent to newcastle calling on the population to murder stragglers. The written orders to seize all cattle and livestock, needless to say I did not bother to finish this novel and filed it under fiction beside sir walter scott's " rob roy" at least he admits its fiction. No more by this author for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars propaganda, 14 May 2014
Not an unbiased book, clearly has a hate russia agenda, basically it could be shortened to "russia bad, everyone else good". This book has been published previously and just has a new anti - putin chapter.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING, published under another title six months ago., 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet again a book previously published with a different title and cover, no warning the book was published six months previously. It just puts the author in a bad light and reluctance to purchase anything else in case its another con.

Why advertise a kindle version when it is unavailable when you turn to the page? This is happening more and more frequently, you advertise books you don't have.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 1 Jan 2013
This review is from: An English Affair (Hardcover)
A very poor, badly researched book trying to use shock tactics to sell. Has the author even read the trial transcripts? I was given this book as a Christmas present and could not even finish it, it has been recycled as that is the best place for rubbish.

1.0 out of 5 stars fiction in place of facts, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The dates and the people are correct but theMacgregors are portrayed as simple,hardworking clansmen and nothing could be further from the truth. The clan was a murderous collection of cattle stealers and raiders who invented the protection racket. All this is glossed over in single sentences, such as the barbarous act of cutting a mans head off and then presenting it to his sister. The murder of 40 schoolboys by the clan at luss gets barely a mention except to try and claim they were adults who had been taken prisoner as if murdering prisoners is not wrong.
They were at war with all their neighbours, Stewarts, Camerons, Campbells and the king James 6, who outlawed them and prescribed them, they did not own the land they lived on, they held it by the sword. The land had been granted to the clan Campbell for services by Robert the Bruce and by James 3rd, 4th,5th, and 6th. They were no better than crooked squatters who refused to pay rent. It appears that the whole of Scotland was wrong and the Macgregors were right. An interesting read that does not let facts interfere with pre-conceived opinion. It could be shortened to 4 words " Campbell's bad, Macgregors good."

1.0 out of 5 stars Aleft wing rant, 23 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After working in A&E for 15 yrs I expected a laugh but found little to laugh about in this political rant. Almost every chapter is a whinge about his colleagues or blaming Margaret Thatcher for the ills of the NHS despite Maggie having left politics 15 years previously. When this book was written labour had been in power for 11 years!!! Pity he could not open his eyes and see the main reason for the failure of the NHS is the micro management/interferance of the labour party. but like most left wingers has to blame everyone else.

1.0 out of 5 stars American con to get you to buy the same book twice, 19 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is also under current release under the title of the painted man, nowhere does it tell you that it is the same story so you pay twice for the same story. In future don't buy books by an american author as they seem to release the same story under different titles. Is this just a money grabbing scam?
