The Manner of Men: 9 PARA's Heroic D-Day Mission
The Manner of Men: 9 PARA's Heroic D-Day Mission
Price: £6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars 9 Para's Heroes, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great read of the forming and training of the paratroopers during WWll and their involvement in the D Day assault. I love finding books like this that pick up on different areas of battles and not just the bigger picture. One gets to read about real people and their experiences.

I love social and criminal history from the Victorian era. Each account kept me reading and no sooner than I turned the last page I was back on Kindle to by the next volume

5.0 out of 5 stars Hell, 22 July 2014

If you read non fiction and you enjoy WWII books this is a fascinating, ugly and shocking account of the aftermath of the war and the retaliations, land grabs and appalling mess that Europe was left in.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous read, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have thought about reading Sam's diary for some time and thought as it was free I would take the plunge. As yet I don't really feel I am getting into the diary as such. There is a lot of academic explanation that interrupts the flow and trying to read it on a Kindle in bed at night is a dangerous pastime as each time I slip into slumber I smack my chops with a heavy electrical device.
I'll keep going it might improve.

What horror and unimaginable suffering. How on earth anyone survived the appalling treatment these Russian prisoners had in Auschwitz. A well written book that keeps you engaged

3.0 out of 5 stars Watch it, 27 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought I'd try this one rather than the usual rubber watch that I normally get. A little too pink and rather cheap looking but for the price OK. It tells the time and won't be a great loss once its been torn off uniform or subjected to a 50 degree wash, which is the usual outcome after a hard 12 hour shift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrors of the Nazis, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Still reading this but a book that I want to keep reading. Two stories running side by side of the persecuted Jews and the rise of a Nazis through the ranks and their eventual clash.
