5.0 out of 5 stars ... the previously unexplored topic of ocean travel during the Great War of 1914-1918, 15 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Into the Danger Zone" is a cleverly put together 430 page volume dealing with the previously unexplored topic of ocean travel during the Great War of 1914-1918. The authors cover the fate of some of the better known liners lost through enemy action - Lusitania, Persia, Falaba etc; managing to bring a fresh approach to well known stories, but it is the plethora of smaller ship incidents that really bring home to the reader, the enormous loss of life caused by enemy action during this period.
"Into the Danger Zone" is packed with previously unseen photographs - some truly amazing - backed up by first hand accounts of many of the sinkings. The authors, both respected maritime historians, have left no stone unturned to uncover many of these experiences. They are to be congratulated, not only for their exhaustive research through contemporary newspaper archives - but for the fact that many of these first hand accounts have been obtained from private family sources.
For the maritime historian, or those with just an interest in World War One, this important work should not be missed.


Tragic Sinking of the Ercolano

5.0 out of 5 stars "Ercolano" Discovered At Last!, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally, the "Ercolano" disaster receives some mention. The passage of time has all but erased this very sad story from memory. The authors have managed, both through contemporary newspaper accounts, and, more importantly, family documents and photographs, to put together this interesting little book. Phyllis Ryerse is no stranger to maritime disaster, having lost ancestors on first the Ercolano, and later, both Titanic and Lusitania. Some readers my find that there is a little too much family related documentation for their liking, all of the actual sinking information must come from contemporary newspaper sources of course, as the event happened 160 years ago, but the family information, to my mind, only serves to strengthen the story and gives us a view of what life, in privileged circles was really like during that era.

I suppose you get what you pay for! Wouldn't stay in the cigar lighter - jumped out at every opportunity - completely useless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy, 19 July 2013

When I opened the package, I couldn't believe that this would actually hold the Sat-Nav in place
, however, after a number of weeks, I'm wondering how I managed without it! Previously, the Sat-Nav would not stay in place, or I had to mount it at awkward angles, making it difficult to see. The mat is so slim, it stores away anywhere when I leave the car and remove the Sat-Nav. I'm really pleased with it.

This review is from: Sorry I Made You Cry (Audio CD)
Some old covers from the early years here. Particularily pleasant are a couple of the old Patsy Cline numbers. Enjoyable CD for background music or in the car.

A surprise gift for my wife, beautiful range of top quality products with a lovely scent. Fairly expensive, but I suppose quality is!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 7 May 2013

Not bad to use, but doesn't give a much more reliable result than using fingertips. The cord which attaches to the phone looks weak and I wonder how long the actual plug in part will last. however, at the price, it can easily be discarded.

Arrived before I was expecting it. Well packed and no missing parts (For once) So easy to attach to bed - although the accompanying instructions were completely useless. Looks very nice indeed and a much better quality than the price would suggest.
