This review is from: Leanings 2 (Paperback)
Peter Egan has the kind of warm and dry humour that I love. Just just read that he is retiring - not good news for his magazine readers but we do have his books. Recommended!

This review is from: In Clancy's Boots (Paperback)
This is the 4th book by Hill that I have. Obviously I like them and this latest book of his did not disappoint, Very good read in these snowy winter days when motorbike is not an option - but I'm waiting for the end of biking hibernation, of course.

Band of Brothers
Band of Brothers
by Stephen E. Ambrose
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars War in Europe from grass roots perspective, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Band of Brothers (Paperback)
A very well written tale of the pilgrimage of the Easy Company - and the viewpoint is the one of the common soldier, not the one of the higher command - but the officers of the company are not forgotten, either. Well researched, too.
A must read if you are interested in the European theater of operations!

3.0 out of 5 stars Western Europe for the motorcyclist, 23 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful handbook for the motorcyclist who wants to tour Western Europe. The routes are well chosen and nice but the descriptions somewhat short - but of course the number of pages in one book is limited.
