3.0 out of 5 stars This book goes some way to throw light on the almost hypnotic effect Hitler had on a civilised 20th Century society., 1 May 2013

Having seen the TV series I was delighted to find the book so much more realistic
It is a chill warning to future generations

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a book for oldies who are young at heart, 1 May 2013

What a clever idea for a book.
As a walker I did so relate to Harold and his need for proper foot ware.
It was also very poignant, with his empty marriage coming to a sunny end .

This review is from: Is It Just Me? (Kindle Edition)
When I had got used to the writting style i laughed out loud
Every page was like a script but I would recommend the book for summer pool side reading

Price: 1.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Max Hastings at his most readable, 2 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again Max Hastings has managed to encapsulate the vast swathe of the ending of the 2nd World War in a very readable informative style, which enables those of us who where born in the 3o's, to see the events in an historical context
Great stuff

One More Time: Songs for Parties, Pubs and Clubs No. 1

4.0 out of 5 stars Sing along favourite songs, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The song book was just what I wanted at a price that was unbelievable.
It came very promptly and was in time for me to lead our Age UK Day Centre members in lusty singing
