Well written and worth reading.Good job we had men like Airey Neave when we needed them.This book describes life as a POW and the risks taken to escape to freedom that involved many unsung heros down the line.

2.0 out of 5 stars Series 1 - 3 are epic.Series 4 don't bother., 18 July 2014

This review is from: Mad Dogs - Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed the Mad Dogs series 1-3 and got series 4 despite other reviews being very critical.It was if the producer and or director were different people to those who made the 1st 3 series and they had not viewed the earlier series.Series 4 is no way near as good as the 1st 3 and to be honest it is not worth watching,honestly, it is that bad.I won't spoil it for you if you read this with the intention of getting the DVD.
SERIES 1 - 3 are epic.Series 4 don't waste your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money., 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initially I considered this a decent bit of kit and so it should be for the price I paid.However, two years further on I've come to realise you don't always get what you pay for in regards to 'high cost equals high quality'. Not in this case it doesn't.
After working as it should for the 1st 18 months it has now appears to have developed a software fault where the digital display often flashes up information indicating,what turns out to be false faults or actions required where there are none and usually whilst in the process of making a drink so the drink making process is abandoned in order to reset the machine to clear the 'fault'.
It is a shame that I find I have to write such a critical review because when it works without the aforementioned fault it produces a good cup of coffee.I will have to check the Warranty but believe it will have expired by now.
Originally I was looking for a Siemens German made machine actually made in Germany- not made in China like a lot of stuff these days but couldn't find what I wanted.
This De'Longhi is very, very expensive for what it has turned out to be in respect of reliability and quality.
By all means get one.They are OK until they go wrong.I thought it would have lasted a lot longer before it gave up the ghost.


Britain's Great Immigration Disaster
Britain's Great Immigration Disaster

4.0 out of 5 stars A book that the PC brigade don't want you to read., 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book over three days and gave this book four stars because it is very informative and an eye opener due to the subject not one being openly discussed by the MSM due to the chronic PC culture in the UK.The content does become a bit depressing as the projected future long term effects of Labours open door mass immigration are laid bare. One of the authors main grievances towards the immigration issue appears to be that the Labour Govt. under Blair and Brown, side stepped democracy for their own political ideological reasons.This type of book is similar to but not in as much depth as some of the books written by Peter Hitchins.


The Silver Bomb: The End Of Paper Wealth Is Upon Us: 1

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book is written more for the USA market than UK, I found it more interesting than I expected and read it over three days. This is for anyone concerned about the ongoing world financial saga and specifically how fiat currencies may undermine the future wealth of the individual. The message of the book is to encourage the reader to buy silver and puts forward a number of convincing reasons why they should do so.Worth the read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others., 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read all the Sven Hassel books back in the 70's I have started reading them over again. Legion of The Damned sets the standard expected of the remaining books in the series.I got the Kindle edition of The Bloody Road to Death and found a number of spelling mistakes.The editing is pretty poor.This edition appears to have been put through a spell check in the transition from hardback/paperback to the Kindle edition - resulting in mistakes.
However,the story starts off OK but gradually becomes disjointed to say the least.Much of it becomes a 'he said, she said' storyline, lacking the quality of The Legion of the Damned.It also digresses into a type of 'Cockney/London speak' with a lot of 'bleeden 'ell mate',type of phrases that gave me the impression these were not German characters but either Londoners or Aussies.The style of storytelling in this book appears different to the style of the first two in the series and sadly I did not finish it.I can only award it two stars out of five.
Anyone who likes the Sven Hassel books will probably be blown away by 'The Forgotten Soldier'by Guy Sajer.
