5.0 out of 5 stars Mosquito, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Father, who flew in Mosquitos at the end of the war enjoyed reading it, particularly, recognising people who he knew. It is a part of a series of books that, whilst are not definitive, do provide a very good introduction to their subject and are worth adding to a library!

5.0 out of 5 stars The man in the street, in uniform, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A slightly different perspective that gives an insight in to the ordinary person, and what they had to face, and how they responded to the circumstances they found them selves in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent reference for modeling the Cromwell, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If this made more English other than just the summary and photograph captions this would have been 5 Star. It is one of the vital publications for any one interested in this Tank, especially for the purposes of making a model of it.

by Wojciech J Gawrych
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Firefly VC, 20 Nov 2012
This book complements the companion volume on the IC and provides the sort of detail that modeling the Tank requires. It on its own is not enough but is a very useful resource as part of a library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ha Ha, Charade you are!, 6 Sep 2011
A Jolly read, and quite illuminating from one idiosyncratic view point of a period of history that marked a great change in the social attitudes of the English. It has to be read as a bit of a yarn as the stories change in the retelling, and other details, seen in the light of modern Family History resources, need changing. So the book is tantalising with regard to the full story which remains partially hidden. As someone who has grown up in the Seventies and Eighties I find the net curtain twitching mores of suburban Thirties, Forties and Fifties amazing and this sort of book makes one appreciate the liberties we have achieved since then. I look forward to another book, detailing the next instalment!

2.0 out of 5 stars Inglorious movie, 30 April 2010
I found this film missed the mark completely. As a comic book style pastiche full of references it nearly worked except that it was so over the top that it left me feeling revolted. By failing, the film has not given the respect necessary to those who lived through the second world war and made a mockery of all those who suffered and died as a consequence of that period of history. If the film succeeded, then it might have made some amends for this fanciful plot, but I am left with the feeling it was written by some committee of uneducated script writers who would have never have applied the same treatment to a film about Iraq or Afghanistan, because those soldiers are in their twenties and thirties, not their eighties, and so can be more forcible in their reaction.
