3.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth of York, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elizabeth of York (Hardcover)
I was somewhat disappointed with this book because there were errors in the text which did not seem to be proof read well. There was , however, a lot of interesting material about a woman who is the ancestress of the current royal family.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kennedy Half-century, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a well written comprehensive study of the Kennedy assassination. It weighs up all the information and comments upon it dispassionately. There are so many conspiracy theories but these are examined and evaluated. I bought it because of newspapers reviews which said that this was the best book written to commemorate the 50th anniversary and I agree with those reviews.

This is a view of Bletchley Park from someone who was there and adds to the general knowledge of life at Bletchley Park from one of the huge number of people who contributed to the success of code breaking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Papers of DW Eisenhower, 14 May 2012

I needed this book for my research. I searched various sites to look for it. Someone I know bought a second hand copy for £75 and i gained a second hand copy for 1P plus postage. My volume was complete, unmarked and had its dust cover.

This book charts Churchill at War at the crucial stage where Hitler had conquered most of Europe. Britian and her Empire stood alone and had to recover from the disaster of Dunkirk to start to resist and then win the Battle of Britian. What comes across is the genius of Churchill. Flawed in some respects but would Britian have survived without him; his fellow potliticians were not remotely of the same calibre.
