Sea Stories of a U.S. Marine Book 3 ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICE
Sea Stories of a U.S. Marine Book 3 ON HER MAJESTY'S SERVICE
by W R Spicer
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.42

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and amusing stories, 28 Feb 2014
A true account of a US Marine taken out of flying missions during the Vietnam war and transferred to fly with the Royal Navy for a 2 year posting in the late 1960's. From the jungle to living a life in West Cornwall adjusting to military and family life in the UK brings some wonderful stories of how he and his family had to adapt to a very different culture. The author's flying stories are fascinating and anybody who is interested in all things aeronautical and indeed military will enjoy these true life accounts. Flying in the frozen northern Norway NATO training zones to flying with NATO forces in Western Europe you get a real understanding as to how professional these characters are. The author has a canny knack in writing as though he was in the room with you telling the stories, they are heartfelt and sincere and always with a touch of military humour. I couldn't put the book down and would recommend it as a truly enjoyable read. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment.

A bit of a must have item if you buying a Nook. It is smart and keeps the Nook safe and unscratched. Also makes it easier to find when it has been hidden under a car seat!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my daughters 11th birthday and she is absolutely delighted with it. Its really light to carry and easy to use. Lovely packaging as well. She finds it really easy to browse the library of books and downloads them in seconds. Would really recommend it as it is half the price of the Kindle. Perfect e-book!

If you are buying a Nook you should make sure you have this mains adapter and charger as well for just a few coins more. There are only so many things that can be plugged into my computer for recharging each time.

Excellent product, as always from Apple. An excellent price and delivered well before the due date. My daughter is delighted with it. We also bought the case from MoFred which is perfect and keeps it safe and unscratched, with the pen to stop finger marks.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing, 13 Mar 2013

This review is from: A Tiny Bit Marvellous (Paperback)
I thought I would be rolling on the floor laughing with this one. The plot looked really funny from reading the back of the book. Unfortunately I didnt really get on with this and it was a struggle to get through it. I liked the characters of Dora and the mother but Oscar was just quite annoying, necessary but I ended up skim reading through his diary entries to pick up the bases of the story but not much else. Perhaps he was just too far fetched! Its OK as a book to borrow from a friend for some light holiday reading but I wouldnt recommend buying it.

This review is from: Ratburger (Hardcover)
I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and she couldnt put it down. She finished it in 3 days, perhaps it was a tiny bit too young for her reading level. It was full of fun and a great story. It has inspired her to start writing her own adventure story.

Good fun and an unusual adaptation on the classic Three Musketeers. The air ship is a bit out of historical context, but its fun and light entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book ... not what I expected, 13 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a nice story and well written. It wasnt really what I expected from the cover and reviews. I thought this would go into greater depth about the Japanese camps in America, but it is more fictional and a love story rather than a factual account.
