Superb. I'm not going to take any stance on the events of 2003 and what has happened to Iraq in the intervening years. What's done is done.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like!!, 28 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, this is the first time that I've properly listened to LK's music. The only thing I can remember is his earlier UK hits. Will I now go out and buy his music.....no. The reason I've given this 5-stars is that live bands do it for me. It's not like some bunch of 'wannabee's' appearing on Britain's Got Talent (a joke if ever there was one) or X Factor. What's not to like about live music.....musicians who demonstrate their musical skills and singers who can actually sing. Brilliant!!!!!


Hijaking a War by Other Means: French Commandos in Action During Operation GIGN in 1994
Hijaking a War by Other Means: French Commandos in Action During Operation GIGN in 1994

Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars Only fit for the bin!!, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because having seen the film 'The Assault' about the hijacking of Air France 8969 in December 1994, and the subsequent rescue carried out by the GIGN at Marseille airport, that this book would provide additional information.

To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. This book is poorly written, inaccurate and to me it seems as though Kumar has obtained his information by surfing the internet!! A complete waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Currahee and Beyond, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Company of Heroes (Amazon Video)
I was sceptical when Band of Brother's was first aired on the BBC, but rapidly became hooked. Following the TV series, I read the book and have also read books written by Dick Winters, Dan Malarkey and Lynn 'Buck' Compton. Easy Company, 506th PIR, are probably now one of the most famous of the airborne elements who fought in WW2. I don't think that this was intentional, as Shifty Power's says, any other element of the US forces serving in the ETO could have been singled out and, to a certain degree, put into the spotlight.

A Company of Heroes is an important reminder of the young men, who, in the case of the US, travelled thousands of miles to fight and die in Europe so that we can enjoy the freedom we have today. Any visual recording of their memories is extremely important, not as a reminder that war is terrible, but that comradeship, professionalism and pride in their unit and they friendships that were forged was one of the things that made them what they were and how they acted.

Worthwhile 'reads' are Dick Winter's book Beyond Band of Brothers, Easy Company Soldier (Dan Malarkey), and Tonight We Die As Men, by Ian Gardner and Roger Day, which is the story of the 3rd Battalion 506th PIR from training in Toccoa to D-Day.

This review is from: Intimate Enemies (Amazon Video)
I would certainly agree with what most of the previous reviewers have said about this film. Yes, it's 'full-on' from the start, extremely well acted and highlights the more darker aspects of France's 'war' against the FLN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holocaust deniers take note., 5 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Graphic film evidence provided by cameramen/women of the Soviet Army during WW2 of the horrors inflicted by German and their collaborators in the occupied East. Although some of the footage has a blatant Soviet propaganda message, other footage drives home the enormity of the murders of those people who the Germans described as 'sub-human'. It makes you wonder why there are still holocaust-deniers out there when there is such compelling film evidence.

Having watched the TV series I was interested in finding out more about this element of the American War of Independence. It is a very good read, well written and gives more depth to the characters depicted in the TV series. If you're expecting the book to mirror the TV series then you can expect a surprise, as a lot of poetic licence has been used. I guess this is to keep viewers in suspense.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sizing Issues, 17 Aug. 2015

They are good quality but I think there is a slight problem with sizing. I ordered 36" waist, but I find that they are a bit too small. Other than that, an OK purchase.

I read previous reviews regarding this item, especially the noise element. I've had no problem with it, it's easy to assemble and I've had it running during the night with no noise problems.
