5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful. If you like Macbeth you will love this., 12 Nov 2014
This is a wonderful production which is fresh and dynamic. Even the text differs slightly from the one familiar from school giving it an additional freshness and energy.

Disappointing. The texts are not side by side but in separate sections. You have two books in one: an English version and the German one. To use it, you need to to use two bookmarks and go backwards and forwards. I was expecting a parallel text and it would not have been difficult for the publisher to have organised this. What a shame!

In Brave Company: 158 Squadron Operations
In Brave Company: 158 Squadron Operations
by W.R. Chorley
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars melancholy reading, 2 Feb 2014
158 had the highest casualties in Bomber Commabd: by an odd coincidence, the squadron number backwards, 851 men killed. I was named after one of them. You don't question the courage and commitment but you do wonder at the Bpmber Command leadership strategy that loses lives and machines like this. One section has a small boy on his farm and a friendly aircrew flying their aircraftX Press Delivery overhead to say hello. This is very moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful and easy to use, 6 Oct 2013

This is the business: more stations than you can wave a copy of the Radio Times at. Easy to operate: you work through menus of types of listening based on areas in the World and/ or types of programme. I have to get up early like a farmer for a long commute so go to bed early with this and it's' really lovely listening to Radio Mexico, Jazz from Kansas City or Baroque from France. Just connect it into your hub with an ethernet patch cable. It has a lovely sound as well. Every station sounds like a local one.
I bought mine from Amazon last month.

It looks like something from the Florentine Renaissance and this probably helps with my artwork. Good quality. One size fits all.
