5.0 out of 5 stars profound, 10 May 2012
Great photographs and a very thoughtful and succinct analysis of Americas disastrous Vietnam adventure. The US was driven by ambition and ignoranc, the Vietnamese by the love of their country. This book brings it all home.
Flight of Ikaros: Travels in Greece During the Civ&hellip by Kevin Andrews
4 of 4 people found the following review helpful
I have read the Flight of Ikaros three times. After the second I felt I had to learn more about the author. My search led to American Ikaros, the biography of Kevin Andrews. The Flight of Ikaros is Kevin's best book, one of the best travel books written and certainly the best book about Greece. Revealing little of himself, Kevin takes us through the spectacular landscape of war torn Greece, introduces us to a series of vivid characters and explores the Greek continuum in which he delighted. A wonderful book, we should be grateful for this new edition.
Road of Bones: The Epic Siege of Kohima 1944 by Fergal Keane

This is a well researched, beautifully written book which is sensitive to the combatants on both sides. Fergal Keane is a master story teller. He has researched the subject well, but lightens the mass of facts he has accumulated with human stories. He pulls no punches. One of the best books on the Second World War.
