3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dead Can Wait (Hardcover)
I found this very disappointing after the previous book Dead Man's Land.
I felt the ending was not what would have been allowed to happen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spoilt by Poor Photos, 9 July 2013
This is an excellent well written book completly ruined by the awful Illustrations.
They look like cheap photo copies(which unfortunately a lot of publishers are doing now)also they are badly cropped losing tops of heads etc.
I was going to purchase Open Cockpit by the same author but am put off by the Illustrations.
May try and find the original published versions with proper glossy pics.
I had them years ago!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs Better Ilustrations, 5 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only been able to award 4 stars,as I felt the Quality of the ilustrations let it down.Like a lot of books these days they are matt which makes them look like poor quality photocopies.I would rather pay a little more to have glossy photo type pictures.Having said that it is a monumental work on the subjct and the author is to be commended on his research.

If you are interested in WW1 Aircraft,you will love this one.
The author has put together a very interesting book,with detailed accounts of the pilots involved and also of course their aircraft.
I recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing, 25 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am afraid I found this a little disapointing.In fact my copy had the same illustration printed twice.I contacted the publisher and was sent a print to insert myself!.Apparently the whole print run was faulty I believe.
The illustrations are fairly well detailed but not spectacular.They do however cover a large portion of the armies in Europe at the time and as such are interesting.

This book is is listed as being in English dispite it's Spanish title.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money, 28 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is a complete waste of money.It does not do what it says it does.It is virtually immpossible to obtain a drink out of it,and the small amount you get is no cooler than on the normal setting.
Absolute rubbish!!!save your pennies.
