This was a book which taught me a lot about a little known part of our history. Having recently visited the Iberian peninsular I was able to envisage many of the places where the events occurred and I am pleased that I took the trouble to follow up this interest. The book is well composed and exciting to read.

A poorly written book, consisting mainly of lists of names and places - more an inventory to refer to than a true account of the actual events which took place at a very important time in our history. I found it tedious, hard to wade through and not worth the expenditure of my time to read it to the end. NOT a book I would recommend to anyone I liked.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Easy Reading., 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very difficult book to follow and does not flow easily. It is an aspect of history which is not generally known and I have learned a lot about South American affairs which I had previously never considered. However I would never recommend this book as it does not approach the subject from the point of view of one who actually served in the many campaigns reported.

A well written, very observant, witty and thoroughly enjoyable read, with flashes of humour. We can all appreciate this book, having been there ourselves.

A flat diary of events written by a man with no writing experience - and it shows. Obviously of some interest to those of us who have done National Service, but I wouldn't recommend it to general readers.

Too short, poor content and only funny in parts. Would not have bothered if I'd known it wasn't worth the effort.

Thoroughly enjoyable and would recommend it to all cat lovers. A moving account of life from the perspective of a homeless person and I was moved by the effect a homeless cat had on the author.

Interesting but obviously written by an amateur with no technical writing skills. Good luck to the author and don't give up the day job - it's more your forte than writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nah then then,opinion, 8 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst this book was nice to read, it was obvious that it was written by and amateur and did not come up to the standard of the Heartbeat series author by a North Yorkshire bobby. I enjoyed it and could empathize with much of the story, but I will not be buying any more of this writer's books.
