4.0 out of 5 stars analysis of Hess, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting analysis of Hess's character and the part it played in the forming of the 3rd Reich.
The undying hatred still felt by many Russians as to the horrors they succumbed to during the 2nd world war does not give one much hope for a better rational over this history to be publicly accepted by the Russian people.

5.0 out of 5 stars long awaited biography, 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Long overdue biography of a general who in my view was one of the best of the 2nd world war.
Very interesting and if anything increased my respect for the amazing achievements that led to the defeat of the Japanese armies in Burma.

We all owe him a debt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live History, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is incredible. The detail is fantastic. One is left with the overpowering feeling that you are there in the flesh.
The story of how these documents were discovered is unreal and one is left wondering how many other documents are waiting to be discovered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 7 Jan. 2011
I was very disappointed with this product. I had been looking forward so much to it. I had used it before some years ago and liked it very much. Now it's everything the previous product wasn't. Slow and cumbersome, difficult to use , doesn't work with Hotmail that I like, generates many copies of email attachments with text or pictures.Do you get the picture??

Guess what, I don't use it now. The only thing I liked about it , and it works,is if you put a reminder in the calender it sends an email to remind you. Now that I like. But that's it folks.
I haven't given Microsoft my views as as with most new software products you have no telephone contact and if you try filling in the questionnaires you never get a response, so I don't bother with them now. (FAQ'S are a dead loss)
