Eagles at War (Eagles of Rome)
Eagles at War (Eagles of Rome)
by Ben Kane
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Researched!, 8 Jun. 2015
I had been waiting for Eagles at War for some time. I read books on ancient Rome by various authors but must confess to Ben Kane being my favourite due to his wonderfully descriptive style which is always so well researched and atmospheric.
Eagles at War does not fall short of Ben Kane's high standard as he describes the desperation of the characters as the Roman legions are massacred in the Teutoberg forest.Probably his best so far!
Certainly left me gagging to read the next two books in the trilogy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius but Harrowing......., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an avid reader of a couple of the authors taking part in this this project, I was excited to read the result from the moment the news was released. Even I, could not have been aware of how harrowing this wonderful book was in parts. Unusually, it brought me to tears, and on one occasion proper sobs. I do not intend to go through each angle/individual in the story in this review however suffice to say it is pure genius the way the stories have been so seamlessly linked together. I was, of course, sad when I had finished reading this little treasure but am nevertheless delighted to have found a few more authors to explore further.

This review is from: The Spirit of '45 [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is a real eye-opener and should be part of the school curriculum.
An excellent, atmospheric documentary on the immediately post war period. Extremely informative

Anywhere But Saudi Arabia! Experiences of a Once Reluctant Expat
Anywhere But Saudi Arabia! Experiences of a Once Reluctant Expat
Price: £2.83

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Page Turner, 6 April 2013
From the first page I was gripped by this unusually honest and enlightening record of the author's many years in Saudi Arabia.
The descriptive writing gives a wonderfully atmospheric picture of the medieval, almost Biblical, Saudi culture when the author and her husband arrived in the country, to its rapid transformation and modernisation.
From her original stand point of apprehension and being almost afraid of becoming invisible in a male-dominated society, the author slowly but surely pushed boundaries and became a ground breaking entrepreneur in the most unlikely of situations. This she did partly by quickly learning Arabic in order to network more easily and befriend the native Saudi population, royalty to nomadic tribes alike.
Despite being incredibly informative, the writing is witty, absorbing and thoroughly enjoyable.
More than anything this book is a love story of how the author and her family fell hopelessly in love with the country, the people and (of course) the wonderful standard of living they were able to enjoy.
