Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45
Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A land mark history, 4 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a mammoth work that really gets under the skin of a very significant period of recent history. The story alternates between the strategic view of what's happening and the fine detail of personal recollections. Yes, we were winning but few of us then realised the price of victory.

Truly comprehensive but feels a bit over-researched. An excellent study book but not a casual read. The maps... always a problem with kindle!

The best product I've encountered for a necessary but not attractive activity!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best general's memoir, 4 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a treasure. Bill Slim comes over as a modest, caring leader, ready to admit mistakes and when successful always sharing the credit. My only criticism is with the maps which often don't show the places mentioned in the narrative. This claims to be the best of all the WW2 general's book and I think that claim is valid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A neat and effective reading light for e-books, 4 Nov. 2015

A very nicely designed and constructed device. It does just what it is supposed to do. It will be interesting to find out the battery life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brotherly love and the burden of guilt, 10 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a slow start this turns into a lovely book. You have to be on your toes to follow the time shifts - and the generations - but once you've got on top of that it's a joy to read. I was born in Canada in the 1930s; my father had broken ground with all the stuff about rocks and tree stumps; I'm also familiar with northern Ontario and all the background descriptions were highly evocative and totally plausible. Never mind that Stuan is an imagined place it could be real. I didn't think Mary Lawson put a foot wrong with her characters or her setting - except - were there ever coal mines on the Laurentian Shield?

Light weight but thoroughly enjoyable. Ideal for the Kindle Single format. What a prolific writer is Mr Horowitz!

4.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think all the changes were for the better but that's always the other side of progress, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
X7 represents a fairly steep learning curve from Coral Draw 6 but it's worth the effort. I didn't think all the changes were for the better but that's always the other side of progress. I felt the transition could have been smoothed a bit more, hence 4 rather than 5 stars


1215 and All That: A very, very short history of Magna Carta and King John (Kindle Single)

Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An informative easy read, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great fun and informative. The later modifications and the derivative versions emphasised that Magna Carta didn't represent a one off event but, in many ways, the start of something very special. If, like me, this period of history was a blank the book provides a very enjoyable lead in to the period - and sets it in perspective.
