5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 14 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Down to earth view of life before and during the 2nd World War. Well worth the read from the viewpoint of a man from a difficult background. I wonder how many people from his generation have the same outlook and hold the same views that the author does. It paints a very different picture to what we are taught.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy read and interesting viewpoint., 14 Oct 2013

Don't know much about life in Germany after the war, so to read it from the viewpoint of a " man in the street" is interesting. The author is not the type of man you would normally expect to be writing a book about this subject and so his views and opinions are not the same as you would get from a person with a more comfortable background.

Easy to read and interesting insight into life in the Ukraine before and during the 2nd World War. I tended to look on the Soviets as being all the same but this book put an end to that.

Best book of the series although probably better described as a marine adventure with special abilities. The team continues to develope.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the first three books in the series and they kept me interested enough to buy this book. I found it a bit too confusing and way out for my taste. The various different forms of communication and internal advice became too much for me. A big contrast to the previous book.

Read this book because I got it free and it had good reviews. kept me interested although the science is a little too fantastic and vague for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars The team comes together, 7 April 2013

Interesting concept although the team starts to become a little too Star Wars ish. If you read the first book then you obviously need to read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Griffin Powerblock, 27 Feb 2012
At the moment this seems like usefull bit of kit. I haven't used it to charge my iphone 3GS yet, which I assume will be trouble free but have used it to charge a HTC Hero using my USB lead. It seems like it could be used to charge any phone providing the right lead is available although abviously thats only a guess. Good for me though.


Swivel Spring Clip Air Vent Mount with Universal Smartphone / Mobile Phone Holder
Swivel Spring Clip Air Vent Mount with Universal Smartphone / Mobile Phone Holder
Offered by Buybits Addons
Price: 14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Universal phone holder, 27 Feb 2012
Does the job in a fashion, but does not very feel very secure on the vent which might possibly be the same with all vent fixings. Does not fit on a Mk4 Golf but does on a C-Max. I have an old Sony k800i which it will hold but when I squeeze the clamps together it activates the camera button. I can manage with it but it doesn't give that "What a great piece of kit" feeling. But at the price if a vent fixing is what you want then it's ok.
