5.0 out of 5 stars Good place to start with Rammstein., 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great introduction to the band - i'd heard one of the songs on the radio and liked so i thought i'd find out some more about the band via this collection. I guess if you're already a fan you'll have most of these songs - I got this version 'cos i didnt want to pay more for the more expensive one with loads of remixes. Recommended.

was quite surprised when it turned out to be genuine motorola. the advantage of this is its aquality product, and works well (even the mount which I was dubious about at first). delivery was a bit expensive but is a bargain pruice to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book!, 6 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was a joy to read. The author gives an authoratative background to Henry V and the political maneuverings that led to the iconic climax that was Agincourt. I thought that the discussion of chivalry and knightly values of the age was especially good. The whole book reads like a rip-roaring novel stuffed with fascinating detail. Along the way many fallacies and oversimplifications that have grown over the ages are dispelled with eyewitness accounts (the image of the clergyman quivering as he writes his journal in the baggage train during the battle is especially precious) and references to the many surviving edicts and lists.

To answer previous criticism about very little of the book (1 chapter) being about the battle I would say the actual battle was but one event in a much bigger picture - without understanding the context the action becomes meaningless.

My one crticism - and its a small but annoying one is that the author constantly refers to "firing" a bow or being under a hail of "fire" from archers. "Fire" is a term used in the context of gunpowder weapons - not one an archer would use and is a tiny blot in an excellent tract.

Continue the rollercoaster ride of the Hundred years war with Conquest by the same author (its just as good).

I was looking for a tool to do the track rods on my car. Took a chance on this over more specialised tools as it was cheaper. Great for the the price and works well.
