Not really what I expected - probably my fault! This is a pamphlet and doesn't contain much detail other than brief commentary. I was hoping for something more exhaustive

5.0 out of 5 stars Little known topic but a really interesting read, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally I had little idea of the exploits of the Confederate States Navy, nor of the role of the UK in the achievements of the CSN. I found this book fascinating, a very easy read but with enough detail to keep the interest up. Strongly recommended.

If you are weight training alone then this volume is pretty helpful, some more photos and or diagrams would be an improvement though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Such a useful reference book, 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book lists out most, if not all, of the houses and gardens one can visit including visiting hours, prices, special conditions etc. If you are travelling around the UK or on holiday somewhere and need to see what there is that you can visit this is the perfect reference. This book combines the lists of the National Trust, English Heritage, Historic Houses and other organizations into one big volume
