This is an immaculate and clear account of the Wars of the Roses spanning over at least 50 years. Well worth the time spent reading it. I couldn't put it down.

This is a fascinating book for those with an interest in history of the period from the perspective of the Central Powers. It is a model of detachment and judgement of events one hundred years ago. One tends to forget that those caught up in the events were human beings too. Buy this book.

Richard Holmes has always been one of my favourite historians. His research has always been meticulous, and it is a great pity that he has died as his books should be required reading for those with an interest in history.

This a fascinating book, and well worth buying even if one is not greatly interested in History. The decisions taken by those in government during this period were brave in the extreme. In sharp contrast to the conduct of some our politicians today.

Mark Twain is great fun, and makes light of what seems to have been an horrendous journey. These people must have had almost unbelievable stamina to have survived.

4.0 out of 5 stars BT Accord Headset and Amplifier, 18 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BT Accord 30 Headset (Accessory)
This kit is just what is wanted. It is simple to use, does the job it is meant to do, the only thing that is needed is to have two spare AA batteries to hand as sometimes they go dead rather quickly - probably because I forget to turn the amplifier off when it is not in use. A good buy.

It is very interesting, I'm still reading it, and I'll tell you more when I've finished it. Well worth the money.

This review is from: Riotous Assembly (Kindle Edition)
The early chapters were acidly funny, which explains why Sharpe's books were banned in South Africa, however, it is difficult to suspend disbelief in the later chapters
