5.0 out of 5 stars PSB at their best, 7 July 2014
This is, most probably, one of the least known PSB albums but, IMO, their best.
You will recognize just a handful of tracks and, even these, in a transformed outfit. Many of the others are virtually unknown to most and translate the care for melody that is a trademark for PSB music, joined by exquisite refinement and originality usually submerged under the requirements for their top-chart themes.
A 20 out of 10, no question!
World War II: 50th Anniversary Commemorative Editi&hellip by Viscount Montgomery Of Alamein
World War II: 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition by Viscount Montgomery Of Alamein
5.0 out of 5 stars Not to miss, 3 July 2014
It would be unmissable even if just for being a 50th anniversary edition and with introductions from Montgomery and Rommel and Eisenhower sons. The contents are within one could expect from such an edition.
Good pictures, with quite a few I had never seen before, also good text. A book to go over a few pages at a time, finding some new details and different perspectives here and there.
Also the price (15 euros including delivery for a large format 2.5 kg book in almost new condition) was astonishing; if you still can find a similar copy buy it.
LIFE D-Day by of
LIFE D-Day by of
Good book as one could expect from Life, filled with fine pictures, many of which rarely seen before.
On the other side, the tone used in the written sections is a bit arrogant and translates mostly the american view about D-Day and its context.
Many other books from american authors (Stephen Ambrose comes to mind, same as the fantastic WWII 30+ book collection from Time-Life Books I bought in the 80's) are much more balanced and fair in their analysis and description of the facts..
Anyway, as a 70th aniversary edition it is worthwhile to join your WWII book collection if you can find it at a bargain price as I did.
