Believe and Destroy: The Intellectuals in the SS War Machine
Believe and Destroy: The Intellectuals in the SS War Machine
by Christian Ingrao
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, fascinating subject, 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book to try to understand why people did what they did and to try and figure whether I would have done the same. It's well written - it reads a bit like a thesis but I like that robust structure - and its treatment of the subjects, people who went from education to einsatzgruppe, is rigorous, detailed and dispassionate. One of the best books I've bought.

Wera 8781 c Koloss Centering Spike WER003696
Offered by 1 Tool Shop

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully made, excellent fit, 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the koloss 6 months ago - an excellent tool by the way - and bought this spike to complement the wrench. It is well made and fits superbly but I haven't yet used it. To be truthful, I'm not sure how to use it, but would recommend it all the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class book, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A difficult story to tell with the terrible loss of life and a corporate architecture that was difficult to unpick but his analysis is clear, his arguments convincing and his writing style crisp and focussed. If you want to understand why process safety is important, and what can happen when it's ignored, give this a thorough read - you'll never look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modernist poetry - I'm not sure it's for me, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm pleased I bought this because I take a lot of pleasure dipping into the poem and trying to understand what the poet is trying to convey, what is happening and why he's writing in this particular style. I'm no specialist, I find it hard going but, oddly, rewarding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality product, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just received these spanners so have not used them properly yet but they are well-balanced, beautiful ratchet mechanism and nicely finished. The wrap is high quality too so overall highly recommended at first glance and I look forward to many years' robust service from them.


Travels in the Congo (Travel Library)
Travels in the Congo (Travel Library)
by Andre Gide
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on African travels, 15 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of his books I've bought, it sets the scene beautifully of early twentieth century travel in the Congo. I've been to both Congos in the last couple of decades and, frankly, not much has changed. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and very useful, 15 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As you would expect with Estwing (I already have one of their claw hammers) it's beautifully made, with the leather washer handle, and the hammer and blade combination is well balanced. Very pleased overall.


The Best of "Dear Bill"
The Best of "Dear Bill"
by Richard Ingrams
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest book, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
By today's sensibility the book can be quite robust in its description of foreigners, the unemployed, sober folk and homosexuals but it is a hoot.
