The Challenge: Britain Against America in the Naval War of 1812
The Challenge: Britain Against America in the Naval War of 1812
Price: £6.73

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nearly Forgotten War, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A deeply researched book, written by a very clever historian. He displays his pro Royal Navy sentiments, but this is no bad thing. Thoroughly recommended.


The Battle of Britain: The Greatest Battle in the History of Air Warfare

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest days, 30 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a story, and what heroes who saved civilisation by beating the Luftwaffe that summer. We can never repay the debt we owe them and to Keith Park and 'Stuffy' Dowding.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Sweeping Story, 27 Jun. 2016
This review is from: The Last Battle (Kindle Edition)
Historically pretty accurate, and a wonderful action yarn. Insight into Japanese life and culture very well done.
I found the only irritation was sighting a red ensign on a Royal Navy destroyer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack London at his best, 12 April 2016

This review is from: White Fang (Kindle Edition)
A precious insight into a forgotten age, and a wonderful tale to boot. Nobody does this better than London, his ability to enter the minds of men and beasts is a wonder.


The Millennium Trilogy

5.0 out of 5 stars An astonishing read!, 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These three books are a wonderful read, but not without some faults. The main one to me is that none of the investigating team seem to have the almost impossible task of the three murders having been done me by a tiny girl shooting the victims with one aimed headshot. Anyone who has practiced pistol shooting would find it almost impossible to do this without endless practice. But that aside, they are extremely exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitler's Naval Defeat, 6 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An in depth analysis of this important event in history. The escape of the Bismarck would have had a disastrous effect on British strategy when we were alone against fascism. Hitler may well have concentrated efforts on our defeat instead of launching into the Russian adventure when he did.

This review is from: Lonesome Dove (Kindle Edition)
This is the seminal book of the series. Go toTexas to see the eventual results of the storyline, and the profound way it portrays the Texas spirit. What heroes, what villains!

Irrestible Victoriana. Wonderfully written.

4.0 out of 5 stars but a good read for the development of the central character's career, 3 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inaccurate technically, but a good read for the development of the central character's career. Good 'Old England' stuff.
