5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks, 26 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thanks to Fr Robert for this work. It will be of great value for those who, like me, are striving to understand their place within the order of the cosmos, and indeed the reality of that cosmos.

I loved this book. It's humour and honesty are a delight, and where ever the author is I'm sure there is laughter in the clouds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Memories, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was also an RO at sea, and in fact attended a Radar course with Bob. This book triggered many memories of my own time at sea, and of the many characters I sailed with. Like the author I struggled to type the press on a passenger ship, until the skill of typing direct from morse sunk in. Great effort, good maritime history and a good read QSL OM, TU CU.

The Revolt of Owain Glyn Dwr

3.0 out of 5 stars Gyn Dwr, 27 Jan. 2009
I agree with Mr. Price's review. R R Davies is Welsh I would imagine (?), and yet the book would appear to be from an English slant. For example, the title could be chosen differently as the first reviewer noted.
I have enjoyed the book, but found that it is in frustratingly small font which unexpectedly changes sizes (even smaller) in the middle of a page.
I haven't found this to be an easy read, as the use of English is unsympathetic in my opinion. Sentences are often inordinately long...I've just taken a random page and there is one sentence 128 words long between full stops.
However, having said this, I found the content interesting and informative, and certainly usefull to anyone studying or interested this period fo Welsh history.

The Origins of the British: A Genetic Detective Story

5.0 out of 5 stars Disagree !, 13 July 2008
Unlike several of the reviewers, I have found this work very readable, and well presented. I was totally captivated.
Dr. Stephen Oppenheimer by his own admission is not by background an expert in linguistics, archaeology or history. But he is an expert in genetics who has been exasperated at the entrenched dogma in these disciplines, and has extended his research into these areas.
His results are plausible, very lucidly prfesented and a benchmark.
A great read, and very thought provocing !

5.0 out of 5 stars American War Eagles - The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, 25 July 2003
This review is from: P47 Thunderbolt [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
There are some nice colour footage scenes of P47's but the comentary is really very poor. Quite disappointing for a film which would appear to be targeted at the aviation (warbird) fanatic.
The film footage makes it worth a buy, but dont expect too much from this one.
