The Gurkhas: Special Force
The Gurkhas: Special Force

4.0 out of 5 stars a good read, 28 Jun 2014

The Gurkhas have a very long and distinguished history and to do that history justice in a short paper back book is quite an achievement. A good,well written reference book

4.0 out of 5 stars makes a good model, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm no rail expert and so can only really comment on the way that this model went together and how the finished article looked. I wanted this model for a museum display relating to post war nationalisation and found that it went together very well and made what looks to be an accurate model


Queen Victoria's Little Wars
Queen Victoria's Little Wars
by Byron Farwell
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.60

5.0 out of 5 stars very detailed, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Until recently I have not read much on the 19th Century British Army and found this book a mine of useful and interesting information. It's well written and easy to read, The author says right from the start that he has not tried to cover every battle that the Victorian army fought in which is possibly just as well as the book would have to be hundreds of pages bigger than it is. Well worth a read and a useful reference boo for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth buying, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well researched and very readable book. This will stand me in good stead for years to come and so it is as well that it comes in a good hardback cover or it would fall to bits.

5.0 out of 5 stars well it made the grandchildren happy, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not easy to review as personally I thought it was a bit, well, ugh. However the grandchildren thought it was wonderful, and they are the people playing with it, so I have to go with that - hence the rating. It is well put together and a lot bigger than I thought it would be.


Hampshire with the Isle of Wight
Hampshire with the Isle of Wight
by Arthur Mee
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars an old but good book, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the writing style of the county collection of books by Arthur Mee - very informal, very interesting and very informative. Although written a considerable time ago, the information is still valid although over the years development has changed some of the places described. Worth a read anyway.

Lest We Forget: The Gallant Men of Hamsey - Tribute to the Men on Hamsey Parish War Memorial
by Susan Rowland

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hamsey is a very small village and so losses were especially felt as everyone knew everyone who died. A well written account

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful piece of music played brilliantly from somebody who has been blind since birth, It always amazes me that anyone can play any piece of music from memory an so overcoming what to many of us would seem an impossible obstacle makes his achievements even more remarkable.
