This review is from: The Devil's Queen (Paperback)
Catherine De Medici with a name like Medici nothing which could possibly occur would surprise and so it was. It is based on the life of a Queen of France who had to fight tooth and nail to continue to survive the rest is history

5.0 out of 5 stars A life story of a brave and decent man, 3 Feb 2014

What an Oddyssey a triumph this book is a salute to an accomplished airman who could have avoided his fate and had it easy during wartime. Instead he volunteered for Bomber Command and flew countless missions all over the Europe and North Africa leading the recruits who needed his kind of guidance and inspiration to keep going to the wars end.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last I get no connections dropped, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb modern chipset two channel router with a prospective enablement to be able to run the new ac Wi - Fi channel as well if you read the manual, what's more you get a quality hard drive as well. It runs really well and the setup is a doddle but you have to be aware that when setting up the router there is an anomally which means that your replacement password for entry to the Desktop is also the password for the additional admin section of the Desktop section in the Desktop page.

If you are unaware of this anomally it will drive you right up the wall because everytime you change one of these passwords it also changes the other to the same password by default. When I made enquiries relating to this most frustrating glitch I found that the Western Digital e-mail support is entirely deficient but you really shouldn't need any support to set this great product up. The additional software bundled with the product is first rate it's a bargain.


Fedden - The Life of Sir Roy Fedden
Fedden - The Life of Sir Roy Fedden
by Bill Gunston
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Guy what a situation what a story., 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just imagine working for a company which only produced the goods according to their own - preferences. Engline development was not an ongoing process it was only initiated when an actual requirement from the Government was made out in a contract. Everything was frozen and nothing could be changed unless the powers that be gave their permission to move on and so engines which gave every indication of being able to produce far more power were stuck in suspension awaiting the signat from above. We were held to ransom by this Company.

The long suffering Chief of The Bristol Engine works was Roy Fedden he had to tolerate this kind of living death while working for Bristol Aircraft he led the team which designed and manufactured the Worlds best post war radial engine in the 1920s. During the 1930s he and his team produced a wide range of more modern poppet valve and sleeve valve engines which only began to realise their true power potential after 1944 when he had left the Bristol Aircraft company. after being sacked by the Management for accepting a Knighthood from The Government .

He was a martinet but he was also an inspired aircraft engineer and the radial engines he and his team designed and evelpoed were more than a match to any radial aircraft engine manufactured anywhere else in the World. It was a shameful fact that our aircraft manufacturers where indulging themselves so such an extreme degree - at our expense during the War who knows how many lives this kind of selfish behaviour had cost .. .

Nothing in this book for anyone looking for Georgy Zhukov he's less known of as a person than Alexander the Great I don't suppose he will ever become a full personality.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good ... Bad read about a subject which claims to be a discipline - but isn't!, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Economics what a joke - that which is claimed to be a way of mamaging the economies of a society or Country is so ephemeral as to be no more than a wishlist of whimsy's for the overprivileged elites. Why believe in belief to beleave why trust in trust there is no such thing as "A" reality or trtuth everyones reality everyones truth is a different truth. This book points the melange of disparate realities out and indicates to us a truth which is staring us in the face if we ever dared to look! Capitalism is a very bad joke....

5.0 out of 5 stars A very human story of being a soldier at the sharp end, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Comes over almost matter-of-factly like some of my old senior workmates reminiscences when I worked with them so long ago as they spoke to each other about various incidents events and happenings during their wartime service lives. This guy saw much more than most because he was a despatch rider and moved around a lot so he knew what was going on more than the average tommy. Yes this is a good read .

2.0 out of 5 stars I did everything right and then got no response from Microsoft, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
loaded the operating system went to register the software then I keyed in the enclosed special code was told it was not eligable and then waited for the phone call from Microsoft which would enable the software - and absolutely nothing happened.

Tried this a few times got no response whatsoever and gave it up when I ran out of the 30 day time span allotted. Later on I bought another similar product - (Win 7 Ultimate) on the recommedation of a well informed friend and this time the whole process worked perfectly... As for complaining who do I blame the supplier or Microsoft ....I chalked up this - experience to .... experience what does work as it claims to do anymore?
