I do not often find myself impressed by 'docudramas', especially not those by the BBC but this one is a triumph. Every school should have a copy.

a useful book but one sometimes gets the impression that the author started off with a conclusion and wrote the book to fit it

4.0 out of 5 stars a very useful book which fills a gap, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a very useful book which fills a gap; however one gets the feeling that this eminent historian has a somewhat jaundiced resentment at the publicity being given to those directly involved in the 'parking site' discoveries - a pity.

figures purchased to form part of a diorama rather than as a Christmas feature - but they fitted in perfectly

4.0 out of 5 stars political hubris and incompetence, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the sort of book every aspiring politician should be made to read and then read again when (and if) they make it up the greasy pole. Buy your local MP a copy!

4.0 out of 5 stars better than most, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are, predictably, many new books on Richard III coming out at the moment - not all of which do much more than feed the authors' egos. This one however is a thoughtful and provocking one. It is also noteworthy for convincingly suggesting that Shakespeare's 'hunch-backed toad' actually referred to a current and unpopular Tudor politician rather than to the long-deceased King Richard.


Imperial German Field Uniforms and Equipment 1907 - 1918: v. 1
Imperial German Field Uniforms and Equipment 1907 - 1918: v. 1
by Johan Somers
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £58.50

4.0 out of 5 stars superb photographs, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the finest books produced yet on this subject. Part of a series of three books by the author on this topic. Expensive but well-worth the outlay. The photographs alone make it a 'must have' for anyone - whether historian, wargamer, modeller, or just interested in the period.


All Quiet on the Western Front [DVD]
All Quiet on the Western Front [DVD]
Dvd ~ Louis Wolheim
Price: £4.90

4.0 out of 5 stars the original version, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolutely first-class film and one of the first anti-war films. Remarkable book written soon after the war ended. A newer version in colour starring, amongst others, Ernest Borgnine, has a less 'period' feel but is none-the-less well-worth watching.
