Excellent work, probably mainly for those who are studying the battle in detail but also of interest to those who are trying to find out where ancestors fought and/or were killed.

1.0 out of 5 stars INK REFILL, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product seems to be OK but the instructions for refilling the cartridges are only in German making it very difficult, if not impossible, to use.

2.0 out of 5 stars STEPPING STOOL, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A stool which does what it says on the tin but we have had to make repeated repairs to ours where dowels have pulled apart. Not difficult but annoying and could be worse than annoying for those without d-i-y equipment. At worst could cause an accident if it came apart while in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars GEORGE BUTTERWORTH, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone who is interested in Houseman's poetry or Butterworth's music this is a must have. For those who wish to remember George Butterworth he is, of course, commemorated by a memorial in the village of Pozieres near Albert on the Somme Battlefield close to where he died and the trench which was named after him. Perhaps a visit in 2016 the centenary of his death.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT BOOK, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a comprehensive review of the political situation in Europe and the relationships between power blocs which led to the First World War. It corrects commonly held views on the causes with authority and for any student of the war or politics generally should be required reading. While it is probably too detailed to be fairly described as readable and may not be of interest to general readers the author manages to put over some very complex issues and relationships with clarity and authority. An excellent study albeit not the only recent work about the period.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK BUT..., 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good atlas but the pages are on the large side for the navigator of a car and can easily become detached from the binding if mishandled. Adequate but no more,

Not a lot to say but they do what would be on the tin - if you need beer mugs they are fine

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT READ, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of a series of children's / young adult's books it deals with the 'de-oiling' of seabirds and an adventure on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. The plot is realistic, the characters believable and consistent with what we have come to know of them in earlier books. For those who knows Rye and the area where the books are set they perhaps become more interesting but well worth a read.

This review is from: No going back (Hardcover)
We have followed the characters in this series of children's books for a number of years. This introduces the first element of (very mild) romantic affection. Perhaps a little sylised the events are all in keeping with the characters we have come to know.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST OF THE SERIES, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hoodwinkers
This is one of children's / young adult's series by Monica Edwards. The plot is fun, the characters are well drawn and the relationships between them realistic although today's teenagers might find them a little old fashioned.
