5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent compendium of WWI material, 9 Sep 2014

This review is from: Songs Of World War 1 (Audio CD)
An excellent compendium of WWI material. The CD set meets my requirement. Obviously it creates more interest than a single CD. Good value for money.

The Eagle Annual of the Cutaways
The Eagle Annual of the Cutaways
by Daniel Tatarsky
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eagle Annual of the Cutaways, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I knew what to expect because I was a keen reader of the Eagle comic which was an inspired piece of work for boys in the 1940s and 50s. The cutaways were incredible works of art which encouraged the curious mind. This collection was bought as a birthday present for a friend in his 70s who was delighted to be reunited with the skilful and interesting cutaways - they were a walk down memory lane to happy days of boyhood when enquiry was stimulated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Licorice Gums, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lion Licorice Gums 2Kg (Grocery)
The consignment arrived in good condition. The product was excellent. If you like a strong licorice then the gum is for you. I am very fond of it and it was quite an indulgence to have 2kg at my disposal and I had to ration my daily intake.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE POWER OF WORDS, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can rate it 5 stars simply because of its author and content. However, the book was bought as a gift for a friend in Hong Kong who admires Churchill and his writings. She reports satisfaction with the book.


Journey's End (Penguin Modern Classics)
Journey's End (Penguin Modern Classics)
by Vernon Bartlett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars JOURNEY'S END, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The play can be considered an iconic statement on aspects of WWI. It is interesting that even now the play is still being performed. It is a set book for Key Stage 4 and I am often asked to deconstruct the play within the context of the wider canvas of the war. My previous copy was rather worn so I sought to replace it. The edition I bought from you is well produced.


The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen
The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen
by Wilfred Owen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars OWEN'S WAR POEMS, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Owen is an important WWI poet and I did not have a full collection of his war poems. This edition is well presented with clear and helpful annotation. Overall it is well organised and collated.
