Gallipoli by Alan Moorehead
Gallipoli by Alan Moorehead
This is one of the very best, most balanced, easily readable accounts of the Gallipoli campaign. Although written several decades ago, it has lost none of its freshness. There are many other books that go into more detail, but several of these are often quite partisan, focusing on the experiences of one part or other of the allies, whereas Moorehead is pretty well balanced. This book is therefore recommended for the reader who wants to understand the campaign as a whole.
Boriyuan Aluminum Wireless Bluetooth Ultra thin Ke&hellip by Boriyuan
Absolutely excellent accessor for the Google Nexus, allowing conventional keyboard typing via a very good Bluetooth link to the tablet. The keyboard is well engineered, with good firm keys, and it of course doubles up as a cover for the tablet itself, clipping easily over the screen, thus protecting both the screen and the keyboard whilst stowed. We have just one tiny niggle.....although there's a backspace key, there's no delete key.....not the greatest of failings, but that's all that prevents us from giving it the full 5 stars. A really excellent product otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 22 Feb 2014
How often is truth more exciting than myth or legend? Here's a good example. Very easy to read, with good maps. I read it in pretty much one sitting, so fascinating is it.
