Enjoyable read. Presents a boxed history of the war in France in layman terms. Shows how easily the outcome could have been so different

This review is from: Band Of Brothers (Kindle Edition)
A compelling read. Action packed with some great characters. It shows the hardship and cruelty of war, yet how the suffering bonded the East company recruits together beyond the limits of the war.


7 Days (Benny Griessel Book 3)

3.0 out of 5 stars 7 days, 30 Sept. 2014

Not as gripping a read as other novels by Deon Meyer. I found the story to be without the usual twists and turns of his others. Reasonably entertaining but fairly bland.

3.0 out of 5 stars The big book of pain, 17 Dec. 2013

Quite a good read. Whilst certainly better than a shallow novel I would not classify this as a historical masterpiece. Interesting but not memorable.


The Reformation: History in an Hour
The Reformation: History in an Hour
Price: £0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars The reformation, 17 Aug. 2013
Contains the main characters and events of the reformation in a short ' holiday afternoon' read. Contains just enough information without becoming a study book, and remains enjoyable enough to be a short holiday read.


The Age of the Gladiators: Savagery & Spectacle in Ancient Rome
The Age of the Gladiators: Savagery & Spectacle in Ancient Rome
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Age of the Gladiators, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really enjoyable read that goes further than telling the story of the Gladiators, and touches on the history of Rome. I am not a history student, and felt the pace and depth of the writing was just right for my novice brain.

4.0 out of 5 stars A survivors story, 26 Feb. 2013
Quite a shocking tale of the hidden horrors of war against civilians population. It generates thoughts as to who would have been tried for war crimes should the allies not have been victorious.
