5.0 out of 5 stars REFRESHINGLY GOOD READ, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some people have to beat their own path Jackie Moggridge was one of these rare people.
As much dedicated to a career in flying as she was nieve about life this book shows that for some nothing is preordained
A really interesting book for both men and women - Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking treatment of POWS, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book about a rarely discussed and little known aspect of the first world war.
Especially relevant to me as my Grandfather had been a pow and I remember him saying that he was so hungry that he ate grass, I just wish I knew then what I know now after reading this excellent book

4.0 out of 5 stars Scots at war, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Raises many questions apart from being a good read - why so many casualties from this reformed division, why was it always at the sharp end?

Good viewpoint from a platoon commander of an Infantry platoon who seems always to be in the wrong place at the wrong time

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mostly just a catalogue of dates and event but it does give you an understanding of what it was like to be in a convoy during the Happy Times and alos what it was clinicaly like when those times ended

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 5 Feb 2014

It brings home the mud and sqalor of the trenches.
It also turns the spotlight on the differences between the Officer and the enlisted man - few baths and fewer trips behind the lines for them.
Well worth reading

4.0 out of 5 stars unusual, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I Liked this book, it was refreshing to look at escapees from a German side especially while being in India.
It just shows how easy it was - until they met the Japanese
Worth a read

Really good - well worth buying lots of perspectives about different people - the movers and shakers along with the ordinary whom you may not have read about

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read a lot of military books and this is the first I have encountered from a night fighters perspective.
Not written in a Gung Ho style more ordinary guy. Well written, gives an additional perspective to war and enjoyable

5.0 out of 5 stars Knopfler on form, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shangri-La (MP3 Download)
In this album he goes back to his roots both musically and culturally and gives us a melange of great sound covering his whole spectrum - 5:15 am is just brilliant and an anthem for Geordies everywhere.- an Iron Fist in a musically soft velvet glove . Money Well spent.
