5.0 out of 5 stars Innovation, 7 Feb 2012
Vienna Philharmonic's New Years Concert 2012.
As usual, Mariss Jansons has found new ways of invigorationg this time honoured favourite, with several items never before used in the New Year concerts. He even takes us to Tchaikovsy's Sleeping Beauty.
The bonus tracks alone are worth the price of the video and include a wonderful fantasy of Vienna. In another track the State Ballet dances reveal a modern approach in place of the old strictly classical formula. Three cheers to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Voices of D-Day, 5 Jun 2009
An excellent collection of memories from those who took part in this momentous invasion. The words are strict quotes from representatives of all ranks in the language of the individual, making this the most personal and emotional account of D-Day that I have read. Do not wonder why old soldiers often do not speak of such days, just wonder how most lived a normal life after the event.
This is war as seen by soldiers, sailors, airmen and planners, not later analysis by historians. It is an account of bravery, death and horific wounds. It tells of men facing unbelievable odds, the loss of friends and colleagues and yet overcoming the enemy and placing a firm foot on Europe on this, the first day of the long last battle of the second world war.
Read it and be thankful for the sacrifices made that day.
