5.0 out of 5 stars Good and inexpensive, 16 Aug. 2010
I bought this product as a replacement for the Braun version of which I've had two (both eventually stopped igniting and it was also almost impossible to tell when they were lit unless you stood in a completely darkened room in order to enable you to see the orange glow) which doesn't appear to exist any more after reading promising reviews from other customers' who bought if for similar reasons.
It was inexpensive and certainly works well for what I want it for. It is one of few that are cordless and so portable and the right size to fit in a bag if needed. The fact that it has a flat bottom means that it stands up when not in use/heating up. It heats up really quickly and has a light which lets you know when the gas has actually lit - something that was lacking in previous products. It also has a case which is really handy as it stops the product from switching itself on/releasing the gas something, which again, previous versions didn't have and is certainly a good thing for the more paranoid amongst us! Although the gas canisters are expensive they seem to last for longer than those of other products (or perhaps it is just the fact that it heats up so quickly)
All in all certainly worth getting and a good purchase - I would recommend it!

An excellent, in depth and easy to understand account of the Suez War. Gives excellent and up to date source material without irrelevence. A must have for anyone who wants to see the 'facts' as it were, and extracts from primary sources.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reader Review, 11 Mar. 2004
Must be read with incrediable sceticism as untruthful, and no doubt biased in parts. Good if looking for a primary source but I found it too hard to determine his honesty to be of any real use for a study on the affair.


Divided We Stand: Britain, the United States and the Suez Crisis
Divided We Stand: Britain, the United States and the Suez Crisis
by W Scott Lucas
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Reader Review, 11 Mar. 2004
A very in depth book on the Suez invasion in general, focusing especially on relations between Britain and the United States. Gives excellent understanding and knowledge of said relationship and provides very good analysis as to why the invasion happened and why Britain (etc.) was forced into the humiliating retreat. Follows the course of the crisis and what happened after the cease-fire. Excellent information on the political situation, giving brilliant insight into the tensions between Eden and the party, as well as within Eden and the impact of this on the crisis. My only criticism is that it is quite heavy reading at times.


Suez Affair
Suez Affair

4.0 out of 5 stars Praise for Hugh Thomas, 4 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Suez Affair (Paperback)
This book gives clear and detailed information into the Suez Affair without submerging the reader with too much information on military detail.
Hugh writes not just on what happened but how it came to happen. This book provides us with great detail on the politics of the event; foreign relations; the personal reasons behind decisions; and information specifically concerning Britain at home.
Hugh writes in a way that interests the reader and his style is both detailed and informative yet unconfusing.
This book would be good for anyone wishing to learn about any aspect of the Suez Crisis and indeed anyone wishing to gain information about foreign relations at the time.


Suez: The Forgotten Invasion
Suez: The Forgotten Invasion
by Robert Jackson
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A good brief outline of the Suez Crisis., 26 Aug. 2003
Although I found Jackson's book gave good insight and easy to understand information into and about a complicated event in history, this book was a little too brief for anyone really wishing to understand the politics behind the Suez invasion and go into the event in depth. Jackson concentrates largely on the military aspect of the crisis and does not elaborate when speaking of, for me, the most interesting aspects of the event- information on the government(s) and relations between the United Nations, America and Israel in regards to Britain (as well as France and Egypt), for example, which are confined to a few chapters at the beginning of the book and only serve on a 'need to know', so to speak, basis.
In short, I would recomend this book to anyone who wishes to gain only very brief and general information on the invasion in regards to the countries, governments and history involved and is more interested in the military side on which the book is focused.


Bloodfeud: Murder and Revenge in Anglo-Saxon England
Bloodfeud: Murder and Revenge in Anglo-Saxon England
by Richard Fletcher
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloodfeud: a review, 12 Aug. 2003
Mr Fletcher has written a medieval history book which is both scholarly and a 'good read', and which can be enjoyed by both historains and those with no previous knowledge of Anglo-Saxon England.
The book traces the history of a blood feud between two leading Northumbrian families, and links that to the political history of the last 150 years of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom, culminating in the Norman conquest and the extinction of the old nobility.
The style is easy and the narrative moves along at a fast pace, and, whilst the text is unencumbered by footnotes, there is a select bibliography for each chapter to guide one to further reading.
So, if you have never read any medieval history before or were put off at school, give this book a try.
