Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation's Treasures from the Nazis
Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation's Treasures from the Nazis
Price: £11.40

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible story, 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, just brilliant. Full of an incredible story about not only the race to save the cultural icons of a nation but also the efforts to bring the war to a close. Highly illuminating on many aspects of the war I had no idea about.

4.0 out of 5 stars highly enjoyable, 31 Dec. 2014

Really interesting. Puts Ramesses the Great in context both before and after his legendary reign. What a guy, I could read on and on about him and Tyldesley's book is a fantastic introduction.

So much information, so little time. Very interesting, you will be wanting to research a high proportion of these in more detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting reading, 17 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting. I think Hughes' other book, about unmade sci-if movies is probably better but this is still a great read. Chapters on Crusades and The Hot Zone were very good but my favourite is the final chapter about the authors own lack of success in having screenplays produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping and informative, 1 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent. Will be reading the authors book about Monuments work in Italy shortly.

One small gripe... Where are the British? They are sorely under-represented and it's almost like America won the war all by itself.

This review is from: Shaolin Vs Evil Dead [DVD] (DVD)
Do not watch this film, it is horrible and made no sense, the action is rubbish too. I gave my copy away to the charity store.

3.0 out of 5 stars good seller, ok game, 14 Mar. 2011
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
game is not as good as it should be. the financial aspect of it is confusing and only becomes frustrating when you hit bankruptcy and lose all of your good players! Despite putting together several brilliant teams I just couldn't win a game in the last few months on the regular season no matter who I was and how hard I tried. Bizarre.

Gameplay is ok, could be better. It is far too easy to just simulate the entire season BUT at the same time it can become tedious if you do not!

4.0 out of 5 stars quality coverage... so far., 17 Feb. 2011
This seems to have it all. The only thing that is not covering is loss/theft, but I am a lot more likely to damage it accidentally anyway!! Great customer service too, contacting me almost immediately after purchase to welcome me and to let me know what my responsibilities are. Very happy so far, let's see what it is like when I have to make a claim!
