"Check Six": A Fighter Pilot Looks Back
"Check Six": A Fighter Pilot Looks Back
by F. C. Blesse
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Combat Flying Yarn, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great flying adventure story by an all-American fighter pilot. As ever, he had to battle his superiors as much as the enemy - cf Olds etc.


Snobbery With Violence: English Crime Stories and Their Audience
Snobbery With Violence: English Crime Stories and Their Audience
by Colin Watson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The Detective Novel on Trial, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best known for his Flaxborough novels, with their crimes set in '50's to '70's Lincolnshire, here Watson looks at the prejudices and follies behind so much detective story writing, even from people like Dorothy L. Sawyers. It's inevitably a sharp satire on the "mores" of both writers and readers, but with his usual wit and dry humour it's very funny as well.


Railways in Cleveland
Railways in Cleveland
by K. Hoole
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Great Value Today, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Railways in Cleveland (Paperback)
A classic little work which still covers a lot in a small space. Shame it's not been reprinted, despite more modern works which have more detail.


Man of Convictions: The Life and Work of George Kipper
Man of Convictions: The Life and Work of George Kipper
by Sid Kipper
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any Kipper Family Fan, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The life story and songs of one of England's greatest folkers. (I think that's what they call him.) After reading this you'll never see Norfolk in the same way again. In fact, you won't see life itself in the same way, either.


Medium Mark A Whippet (New Vanguard)
Medium Mark A Whippet (New Vanguard)
by David Fletcher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value guide to the type, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covers not just the Whippet but some later British types. As ever with Osprey, great value


Twelve Months of Sundays: reflections on Bible readings: Year C
Twelve Months of Sundays: reflections on Bible readings: Year C
by N. T. Wright
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide to the Readings, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tom Wright always makes you think and he's especially good at letting you see the connections between the passages. Great for sermon ideas.


Mark IV vs A7V: Villers-Bretonneux 1918 (Duel)
Mark IV vs A7V: Villers-Bretonneux 1918 (Duel)
by David R. Higgins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A typically good and useful Osprey overview, and shows that the German tank wasn't a total failure.


The Definitive Collection
The Definitive Collection
Price: £6.53

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Powerful folk, both vocal and instrumental. You don't need to go electric to make a compelling folk noise. The songs and tunes are good 'uns, too!


Hopjoy Was Here (Flaxborough chronicles / Colin Watson)
Hopjoy Was Here (Flaxborough chronicles / Colin Watson)
by Colin Watson
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Flaxborough, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all Colin Watson's books, full of human understanding and shot through with that very dry Lincolnshire humour. It's in part a very funny deconstruction of spy novels.


Pe-2 Guards Units of World War 2 (Combat Aircraft)
Pe-2 Guards Units of World War 2 (Combat Aircraft)
by Dmitriĭ Khazanov
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine overview of the type's operations, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can be repetitive, but there are plenty of stories of the courage and endurance by which Russian people did the lion's share of beating Hitler.
