1.0 out of 5 stars Religeous Bigotry., 5 Aug 2011
I cannot understand why anyone would write this drivel, much less read it. Please buy it, and then do the world a favour, and burn it.

Murder of Rudolf Hess (Coronet Books)
Murder of Rudolf Hess (Coronet Books)

3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly researched., 27 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The research conducted by Dr. Thomas is poor at best. Admittedly this was written some time ago, but still very large and basic facts are incorrect which really dont have any excuse.
From times, dates, mechanical data on the bf110, the markings of Hess's aircraft, all being inncorrect, the list goes on.
Not to mention the fact that the whole premise is based on what seems to be Dr. Thomas "seeing" Hess get undressed for about 10 seconds. How the man can make a proper medical examination from this i fail to see.
The whole book is based on the fact that Thomas did not see any obvious scarring on Hess's chest from where he was shot in the first world war.
It is worth reading for anyone with an interest in the subject, simply as background to, and the origin of the Hess double theory, but it is far from a book that can be taken seriously on its own merit.

AK47 Assault Rifle
AK47 Assault Rifle

2.0 out of 5 stars Run of the mill., 27 April 2011
This review is from: AK47 Assault Rifle (Paperback)
This book does collate a lot of useful information in one place, but its not what i would call complete. While informative there is nothing particularly new in here and often lines of thought are left unfinished.
Anyone with enough interest to buy this book quite possiblly knows what is in it already, but that said is is a good general purpose source of info on the AK, but anyone with other books on this subject would probably not need this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Revealing, but not in the sense expected., 25 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of a collection of documents than a typical book, including transcripts from interrogations and interviews, this makes for fascinating reading. The transcripts of the interrogations are particularly interesting, noting the contraditcions between accounts, as well as word for word identical accounts from different people and the times of interrogations (several hours for a 1 paragraph testimony!).
This is more interesting to read the Russian methods rather than the content of the transcripts, which can not be relied upon to be truthful.
A very good collection of documents which will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars rubbish, 28 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is exactly the same boook as "Hitler's escape" by the same author using a different name. Absolutely awful, makes a laughing stock out of the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Horror Themes?, 28 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Themes Of Horror (Audio CD)
Be aware, the tracks on this CD are not the original scores! I was deeply dissapointed!
Maybe try it if you would like a collection of synthesiser covers of the listed tracks.
