Blood Red Snow Memoirs German by G Koschorrek

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 25 April 2008
I recently bought this book from Amazon.co.uk and I can say that it is well worth a read. I know that there are loads of memoirs out there from soliders fighting in the various allied armies, but I jumped at a chance to read a book from the frequently under-represented German persepctive.

Great book, great author, great read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't recommed it, 4 Jun 2006
I recently purchased this player and was far from impressed. It was incredibly easy to put my music onto it, which was great, but when I began to listen to it, parts of the tracks were missing ie. the vocals or the drums etc.

Also, the music would begin to fast forward through tracks of its own will, which was very frustrating.

I used the online manual from the manufacturer, which had a couple of spelling errors and solved nothing. I called their customer service centre and listened to a couple of minutes of recorded message before being told that they weren't open, despite their website saying that they were open.

The only good thing, apart from easily… Read more
