Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Gardens to enjoy, not to copy, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Gardens of Italy (Hardcover)
The gardening recipient of this Christmas present will read anything by Monty Don and was not disappointed by either the text or the photos. Above all the grandeur of the gardens relieved her of the burden of attempting to emulate them on her allotment!

1.0 out of 5 stars Monthy Laughter in the church family, 19 Jan. 2016

The first item I read in the weekly Church TImes is Dave Walker's cartoon. The recipient of this Christmas present is making her laugh, and her visitors aswell.


Russia: A 1,000-Year Chronicle of the Wild East
Russia: A 1,000-Year Chronicle of the Wild East
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to a major international player, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a very useful summary of the history of Russia up to the time it was written. It seems consistent with the moderate amount I already knew. For those who recognise the need to understand Russia this is a well-written book and easy to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oswald and too many other players, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this quite difficult to follow, partly because I am unfamiliar with the period and partly because the number of flashbacks and flashforwards. Also, perhaps necessarily, there was a lot about Oswald's many predecessors and contemporaries, the quantity of whom was difficult to digest. But my assumptions of the period as more or less like the Middle Ages were corrected.


Horsemen in No Man's Land: British Cavalry and Trench Warfare 1914-1918
Horsemen in No Man's Land: British Cavalry and Trench Warfare 1914-1918
Price: £10.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Cavalry by infantry's permission, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
David Kenyon questions the assumption that the cavalry played no useful part in WW1. Because of the day by day reporting of engagements, the need to remember what has gone before in the account and nature of cavalryman's life, it is wise to read the book more or less at one sitting.
