5.0 out of 5 stars The best small torch ever!, 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great torch and brilliant bargain. Uses one AA battery and even using the lower voltage rechargeable AA its very bright. With a click on the start button you can make it flicker, use a lower intensity then go to high intensity light. Its very solidly built. I've only had it a few days but its feels as though it will last a long time. Small size so easily stored and easily carried on those short trips when you don't want bulky items. Exactly what I wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars A war poet of the greatest courage, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have delved deeply into both Sassoon's life and his poetry and I can now see why he is regarded as one of the finest poets of the 20th century. A knowledge of how he tried to protest the war at a personal risk is important to appreciate his work. His personal struggle to be loyal to the men under his command whom he felt were being sacrificed needlessly and his need to speak truth to power is beautifully displayed in his poetic descriptions. He comes over as not only a great poet but a man of exceptional moral and physical courage. Finally receiving a head wound which removed him from the trenches he miraculously survived to give us this great artistic gift. An essential read for any who contemplate the disaster of WW1.

5.0 out of 5 stars The soldiers' story, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was hard to put this book down once I started it not only because it gives a clear description of the final year of WW1 but because it allows the soldiers themselves to tell their story in their own words. Each story is often very moving, often tragic and occasionally very funny. The author explains well how this victory was achieved and within the logic of war it makes sense but at the end of the day one just has to ask oneself what did WW1 finally achieve by this great victory. I can only marvel at the heroism and sacrifice of so many and think a British public would never permit this to happen again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A history of the Battle of the Somme by a great researcher, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Somme (Kindle Edition)
Lyn MacDonald is a renowned historian of the First World War and in her usual style she allows the people themselves tell their own story from her extensive researched documents and the personal diaries and letters of those who were there. Unfortunately on my Kindle the maps and photos are not clear. I have the basic Kindle and I really missed the clear maps but perhaps on the better Kindle its easier to see these maps and photos. Thank you for this insight into a tragic moment in human history. Will we ever learn from this terrible futility and waste of youth.

5.0 out of 5 stars History of Nursing in WW1, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great history of nursing in WW1. The author has edited a stream evidence from nurses, doctors, volunteers, orderlies and in fact all cadres who were involved in the care of the wounded and sick in WW1 and she lets the story be told through their words. She has researched her material in great depth and you can hear and feel the impressions of those who experienced at first hand this great calamity. Her skill as an author is that as you read you can hear the healthcare workers speak directly to you often through their diaries. This editing cannot be done so well without a deep and wide grasp of all the data. Thank you Lyn MacDonald for this treasure of experience and what a calamity this war was to so many millions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and tragic, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The history of the non-violent resistance in Germany against the Nazis is important to preserve. So many brave people tried and their witness must not be lost. The film tells the story of the Whites Rose group who non-violently showed the courage to oppose the cruelty and barbarism of Nazism and who gave their lives in the hope of arousing a wider resistance. That wider resistance in Germany did not follow but will inspire others in similar situations and perhaps have better outcomes. The film is beautifully crafted and very professional. A moving tribute to these brave young people who had a vision of a better future for Germany It will be a classic in decades to come. Thanks to the filmmakers and thanks to the Whites Rose resisters. You will not be forgotten.
