5.0 out of 5 stars Read this first, 2 Jan 2010
It is suggested that you read Maritime Miscellany before you with great pleasure ( I am sure) dig into 'The life of Thomas Kydd'. read them all, they are fantastic and each book is different. Good reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be read by any submariner, 2 Jan 2010
Any submariner who has been 'on scene unseen' after 1945 should read this book.
A lot of things will seem similar, but soon one realises that our experiences are nothing compared to what those gentlemen, who fought the war, had to endure.
A very good reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very constructive book, 2 Jan 2010
Some play bridge, others knit, but the true 'mind winder' is making knots. Sometimes it is 'nerve' wrecking, but the results are most satisfying. A very good (and cheap) entertainment

4.0 out of 5 stars Edmundo Ross at his best, 2 Jan 2010
If you like Edmundo Ross, then the CD is fine. Some of the tunes are however used over and over again (specially in circuses) so they may seem a bit worn out.
In genertal it is a nice record

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good and helpful dictonary, 30 Jun 2008
I am a fond reader of books related to the great sailing period, especially the Kydd serie written by Julian Stockwin. In order to get the full pleasure of these magnificant books I now and again have to refer to admiral W.H.Smyth. So far he has not failed to assist a former submariner to fully understand the surface ship language.

A voice smooth as honey,with a swinging band in the background. A perfect gift to any jazz lover. Thanks that there still exists singers at the level of Ella and Billie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tough story from a rough time, 26 Nov 2001
This review is from: Kydd (Kydd 1) (Hardcover)
Seeing is beliving, but this time reading is the same. The story about Kydd knits together facts and fiction (story and history) in an very breathtaking way, and leaves the reader with no mercy. It is really good reading (but don't use it as bedtime reading for the younger ones).I am looking forward to Artemis.
