More of the same from Jack Campbell, which means its very, very good: Action packed and with some good plot twists.

From the opening page to the end, the pace never lets up, recommended; I immediately wanted to read the next one in the series.

A good follow up to Ark Royal, with the same good action sequences and some good new characters- like the first book, I could not put it down.

This review is from: Ark Royal (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyable hard sci-fi and good to have British characters for a change. I found it hard to put down. The pace does not let up. I bought the sequel as soon as I finished it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a reminder of dark times, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good account revealing the dreadful reality of communism. Should remove the scales from the eyes of apologists for the USSR


A Splendid Little War
A Splendid Little War
Price: 3.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read from Derek Robinson, 30 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another fine story from the pen of this author; whilst perhaps lacking the impact of "A Piece of Cake", it nevertheless conveys the confusion,horror and humour of the Russian Civil War. There is the usual ensemble of characters and the action descriptions are first class.

I felt it ended abruptly, but then, this is true to the events it is depicting

One of my favourite sci-fi books, a brilliantly written story of what might have been; grips you to the end


Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Leather-Feel Flip Case - Pebble Blue
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Leather-Feel Flip Case - Pebble Blue
Offered by AVIDES
Price: 13.96

3.0 out of 5 stars protects the screen but makes it difficult to switch it on and off, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the case protects the screen and prevents the phone from resetting itself, the access to the on/off switch is compromised- the phone is difficult to switch on and off- although it has now become prone to restarting itself.

On the plus side, it means that it no longer keeps sliding out of my pocket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cromwell tank, 12 May 2008
A good, concise history of the development and service history of an important, if neglected, British tank. Well worth a read.
