5.0 out of 5 stars Educational AND fun!, 20 May 2009
What a great little book - A quick read, written in an entertaining way. Not only that but interesting too, really lifting the lid on another religous facade that we are expected to take on face value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading reviews, 20 May 2009
Having read the first three reviews, I was under the impression that this book would balance itself nicely between athiesm and religion, undertaking a thorough and enlightening view of both sides of the fence.
Unfortunately this is not the case, and the reviews are dissapintingly misleading. The book is written by quite a strong pro-Christian, and primarily spends the majority it's time detailing down where Dawkins et al have been going wrong - and what a concern atheism is to the wider world!?!?
This book unfortunately lands very squarely in the pro-religous camp (unless you are a devout Christian and subsequently see it as a very fair and un-biased read!) so be aware.

(don't take my word for it - use the "see inside" function and read some for yourself!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Close but no cigar...., 16 Nov. 2006
Overall a really good book highlighting the insights into the situation in Burma during WW2, and had this book been entitled "Burma and Bill" it may have been slightly more accurate.

What I'm getting at is that the book really could have made more effort to understand Bill Slim as a person, and bogged itself down with the troop movements and overall situation of the war in Burma.

I would recommend this book as great insight into the infuence that Bill Slim had over the ups and downs of the conflict Burma, but not if you really want to gain a deeper understanding about Bill as a person.
