Totally agree with previous reviewer. Waste of money. Bought this at a local bookseller for the full cover price. Silly me!

5.0 out of 5 stars PROBABLY THE BEST BOOK ON WW1 I'VE EVER READ, 6 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first became interested in the 'Great War', when I was thirteen, in 1964 (the 50th anniversary) and have read literally dozens of books, and watched countless TV programmes, on this subject. I bought a copy of this about a month ago and was totally mesmerised. If you ever wondered what it must have been REALLY like to be an ordinary soldier fighting on the Western Front then this is THE book to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT REFERENCE BOOK, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although quite detailed for an old mind like mine, I found this to be REALLY helpful on a subject I knew very little about.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT WHAT YOU THINK YOU'D GET!, 20 Mar 2011
Bought mine from a well known UK shopping channel (at a lot more than the Amazon price) and found (a)you can't record from the channels you really want to (fine if you're really into blurred silent fims with Polish subtitles) and (b)kept constantly coming on of its own accord, slowing everything else up,when you start up your computer and generally being a bloody nuisance!

5.0 out of 5 stars BILKO AT HIS BEST, 23 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant! Haven't seen these for years...literally about forty years! First saw Bilko when I was a child in the 1950s and was a bit apprehensive as to how I'd find them now (I turned 60 last month). I've been amazed at how fresh, funny, and quite thought provoking, they are. Already have a queue of friends wanting to borrow them from me!Sgt. Bilko [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'NO-NONSENSE' DEAL!, 24 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely book. Great price and worth every penny! Beautifully produced and, I've said before about British Library books, printed and bound in Great Britain. If you DO purchase this have a look at the recipe for 'Amblongous Pie'...worth it for that alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT VALUE, LOVELY BOOK, 17 Nov 2010

This has to be the bargain of the month. Beautifully produced facsimile, good price and (incredibly) actually printed in Great Britain! Worth every penny.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT QUITE WHAT IT SEEMS, 30 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're a WHO fan then you've probably seen most of this before. Accompanying music, whilst 'sort of' in WHO style, is not the WHO. No doubt copyright got in the way!

Lovely book with beautiful illustrations. A must for those, like me, who'd like an easy introduction to this subject. Thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars WISH I'D BOUGHT IT HERE!, 28 Sep 2010
Just purchased this from a well-known high street bookseller. Even using my 5 voucher I had from them I still paid 5 more than here. DOH!
