5.0 out of 5 stars A well wrritten acount with lots of detail which was all new to me., 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ALTHOUGH THERE ARE DETAILS OF MANY OF THE ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE FRENCH RESISTANCE THE BOOK NOT ONLY COVERS THESE, IT ALSO DEALS WITH THE POLITICAL SIDE OF THE EFFORTS OF GENERAL DE GAULLE AND THE VARIOUS DIFFERENT POLITICAL FACTIONS WHICH STRUGGLED TO CREATE THE KIND OF STRUCTURE THEY EACH WANTED FOR FRANCE FOLLOWING THE END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR, THIS WAS AN ASPECT OF THE RESISTANCE WAR OF WHICH I WAS NOT AWARE.

It is widely known that aerial coverage of warfare sites took place but I doubt if many people realised the extent and the level of detail which was provide by its practitioners. This book provides it and it makes for highly interesting reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laptop very good but Windows 8 a bit tricky to get used to., 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The laptop itself is very pleasing with particularly easy-to-use letter keys. I myself do not use many figures so the numerical keyboard on the right hand side is not much use to me but it would be important to many users.. It is especially fast to boot up I would recommend it to anyone..

5.0 out of 5 stars This phone is perfect for my needs, but unfortunately, being a "returned" item, it arrived to me without an instruction booklet., 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The phone is very easy to use and does all the things I want it to do. The photographs especially are very clear and the zoom makes for a very pleasing selection of pictures.
