This review is from: Kolymsky Heights (Paperback)
Fascinating story, considering it was written ages ago (in the era of no mobile phones!).

As an ex-pat living and working in Munich, I bought this from the perspective of having an interest in historical events close to where I am. This is not an easy reading book for those with a light or mild interest in WW2 - it is a very heavy read; but clearly very well researched and deserves the Penguin Classic Military History book status. It does labour heavily on the key proponents with the SS, and their rivalries. Neatly dispels any myth that the NSDAP were a single, unified organisation - far from it. I found the early chapters OK, but my interest had waned by halfway through. A solid book for anyone doing detailed study solely on the SS - Herr Hohne has done a fantastic job - I'd expect to find copies of it in big military libraries For those with a more average read - try Laurence Rees' 'The Nazis - A Warning From History' instead.

This review is from: The Expats (Paperback)
As an expat overseas, got this on the strength of reviews. Was a good read, intriguing at times and left me thinking after each chapter about who might be lying and double-playing who? It does jump between events, both past and current (in the story), which was a bit confusing initially. Wont spoil the ending - might make a good film!

Bought this to replace bottom bracket set on my bike, which every few months gets full of alpine road crud/salt/grit. No more! Super smooth in use, doddle to fit once you've got the old BB out!

Bought these for the 2015 ski season. A perfect fit for me (I'm 5'5'' tall and 36 inch waist). Leg length was spot on when in ski boots. Was after something nice and loud, in terms of colour and these are! Love them!! Just need to find a corresponding jacket...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping account, 2 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sophie Scholl [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
As an ex-pat living in Munich, I became acquainted with the story of the Scholls and the White Rose movement and was fascinated to know more about this dark chapter of the city's history - especially as it coincided with the 70th anniversary of liberation. The movie is a gripping reminder of how a small band of people dared to speak out against the Nazi movement, in an attempt to enlighten others and foreshorten the war. The investigator Mohr is determined to reveal the truth from the Scholls, but shows a glimmer of humanity as he turns up for Sophie's execution. The 'show trial' and chief 'judge's' acidic vehemence are a reminder of "Those who can make you believe in absurdity - can make you commit atrocity" - look for the German officers in the courtroom who sit there, knowing the outcome is hopeless - both for Germany winning the war and Scholl surviving, but sit there agreeing. Sophie's cellmate, a communist prisoner lends context to all those others persecuted. Subtitled in English.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile companion guidebook, 27 Dec. 2014
I bought this years ago from another firm (Cicerone) having ticked off the Hindelanger and Mindelheimer Kletterstiegs, then realising they were in the fourth highest (on a scale of five) in terms of difficulty! Amazed to see its now £50! The book is a great resource in English, indicating start points, transport to & from, routes and difficulty. The standard of mapping though requires additional resources for safe navigation. (Kompass Wanderkarte recommended). The book is helpful in that it does cover 'novice' routes right through to multi-day affairs through some demanding alpine scenery. A good start point, but my advice would be to supplement it in country with a local guidebook and mapping (and helps if you can decipher some German!).

There are better models of jacket out there, and cheaper. I bought this for use in the Middle East but sadly it wasn't warm enough to survive night time desert temperatures. Also, after a quick scramble in rocky terrain, the shoulder wore through in a spot. Really liked the pocket arrangements, superbly comfy fleece collar (liked very much!). Have kept it as an addition to my travel kit, but not for strenuous ops work. A thicker core fabric would be more appealing.

Got the candles very quickly, and as described. Followed the manual, switched them on, turned them off with the included remote, then....nothing. Can't switch them back on or do anything via the remote. Have tried new batteries and still defective. Not impressed Frostfire! Defeats the whole object of having a remote if you can't use it! How about a replacement?
