3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Suspect, 7 Aug. 2006
I read this well written book with great interest, but ultimately found it rather dull. Facts and figures unkown to me that are probably true and very thought provoking are ruined by the numerous unverified account by SS soldiers, who inevitably want to distance themselves from Hitler and claim that THEY were the victims of atrocities, when all they did was help enemy wounded and civilians etc. It really makes an otherwise mildly interesting book seem a bit far fetched. At least Ryan had his accounts verified by 3 seperate people who didn't know each other before he used them. But really, if you want to read accounts of SS men moaning about being victimised, (and a lot of the units fought in Russia, don't forget!!). Then this is the one. I'm sure some of it happened, but are we really meant to sympathise. Their reputation for being fine fighting troops is no doubt warranted, so, no doubt is their reputation for brutality. A good reference book. Forget the anecdotes.

Ok three stars for the facts.(if they are true). The rest is severely dubious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst film ever?, 9 Jun. 2006
I can't say too much about this, apart from I wasted 1 1/2 hours of my life watching it. Cliche ridden rubbish. To think I saw V for Vendetta before it!. It felt like it was made in the 80's. Bad effects, lacklustle acting. Unbeleavable characters, plot etc etc. I also made the mistake of not turning it off after the first 10mins. Avoid. (1 star because you can't leave it blank. No stars is more like it)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 2 Feb. 2006
Like I said brilliant. Dont know what the last 2 reviews were about. Tennis??. Sense of humour breakdown perhaps?. Great film, decide for yourself, but don't pass it by!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a purist....but, 23 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Flush The Fashion (Audio CD)
I read the other reviews. Ahem. I really like this. Cheese rock at its best!. There are other Cooper albums to be avoided more than this. If you are a fan and have an open mind. Then get this. Give it time. It grows on you, an if you get it cheap, its worth Grim Facts an a few others on its own. A lot of Coopers later stuff is hit or miss, I think, but this is more hit.(A first 7 albums fan here, an half of the rest!)
