The Fifth Fusiliers and its Badges
The Fifth Fusiliers and its Badges
by Denis R. Wood
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Buy for the Serious Military Badge Collector!, 16 Oct 2014
A specialist book without peer. I bought the first edition and was extremely pleased with it; I thought , to achieve excellence, if the badges depicted were in colour format , along with the mass of detailed descriptions, then the book would stand above all others of the genre. And lo, it has come to pass! Colonel Wood's second edition has surpassed my expectations - it is superb. Added to which, this edition is some eighty pages longer with badges and information that have come to light since publication of the first edition. Colonel Wood has spent a lifetime collecting the badges of the Fighting Fifth and documenting the attendent history and descriptions, resulting in this magnum opus. He should be rightly proud of his achievement. This wonderful book deserves TEN stars! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

A superb specialist book. I have never seen better coloured badge photographs. Mr Machin has obviously done a great deal of research - a real labour of love - and the finished product does him proud. The book is a must for the serious badge collector or enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Buy, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this phone as a result of seeing a magazine ad and am extremely pleased with it. As I'm a complete technophobe it is ideal as I only want to make and receive calls. Highly recommended for those like me, it's not for those who need all the modern sophisticated androids, apps, etc, etc.

This specialist book proved to exceed my expectations as there is a great deal of detail 'extra' to the main thrust of the book. Great for constant "dipping into".

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Mark Adkin Winner, 8 Dec 2013

This is yet another fantastic offering from this author. The amount of detail is unbelievable . Not a volume to read from start to finish but one to dip into - one item leading to another and before you know it a great deal of time has passed!. A superb work giving endless hours of reading pleasure.

This review is from: The Ashokan Farewell (Audio CD)
I only bought this CD for the "Ashokan Farewell" track ( which is excellent ) but found it to be beyond my popular classical music tastes

Overall an amusing look at a service in which I served for 36 years. Sometimes the author tries a touch too hard to be funny

Like its Australian Army counterpart book of the Great War, another excellent Osprey product. One for those with an interest in the Commonwealth armies of that conflict.
