Wooden World: An Anatomy of the Georgian Navy
Wooden World: An Anatomy of the Georgian Navy
by N. A. M. Rodger
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking brutality in the sailing navy, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A myth buster and an excellent read. The talents of leadership and the loyalty of the crews to their officers kept these ships efficient.
More Bolitho and less Blythe in tone. A really good book for reference.


The Roses of No Man's Land
The Roses of No Man's Land
by Lyn MacDonald
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars VADs change lives, including their own, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good as an introduction to a very large subject. The serious student of the VAD at war would need more substance as VADs were employed along the whole of the front, in more than one country and doing all manner of works other than 'nursing'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Women's rights don't exist!, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rambles, with too many extraneous facts. Nevertheless it is an interesting story if the reader has the stamina to read it all.
It illustrates that in Mrs Norton's day women were nothing, had nothing, could expect nothing especially from their husbands.

Spark Plugs Engine Digital Tach Hour Meter Tachometer Gauge Motorcycle ATV
Offered by Candy Lighting
Price: 7.02

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful Kit, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is OK for testing purposes, it will be incorporated into my static motorcycle engine test rig. I only hope that the battery lasts a good long time as there seems to be no way of replacing it when it finally dies.


Elsie and Mairi Go to War: Two Extraordinary Women on the Western Front
Elsie and Mairi Go to War: Two Extraordinary Women on the Western Front
by Dr Diane Atkinson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking bravery, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two stubborn women taking on a horrific role that few men or women would volunteer for today. A MUST for those interested in other facets of WW1 and the social history of the war period. Also a MUST read for real bikers everywhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Little tulip and less flower power, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tulip Fever (Paperback)
A great disappointment as it was not what I expected and not what it was cracked up to be by the newspaper reviewers.

Rossini: Le Comte Ory [Metropolitan Opera, 2011] [DVD] [2012] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Juan Diego Florez
Price: 10.28

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Humour, drama, excellent acting and the singing out of this world (mostly). The only weakness was the bass who had neither the timbre or range for the job. Cannot fault his acting though.

The Making of the National Poet: Shakespeare, Adaptation and Authorship, 1660-1769 (Clarendon Paperbacks)
by Michael S. Pmp Dobson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 27.98

5.0 out of 5 stars For the MA and PhD student of the works of Shakespeare, 22 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This should be required reading for the Shakespearian scholar as it is full of useful references, thought provoking information and alternative views and observations on the bard.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A must for the serious porcelain collector whose interests are in miniature tea services and coffee services of the 1800's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Victorias travelling palace, 22 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Royal Trains (Hardcover)
