The Fall of Fortresses: A personal account of one &hellip by Elmer Bendiner
5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read!, 9 May 2013
I read a lot of WWII autobiographies and usually don't feel compelled to write a review unless I feel it's very, very good or terrible, and this short book is very much in the very, very good category. Firstly it's a funny book; the author is self deprecating in a humorous manner and I found myself laughing out loud on occasion. Mainly however I found his descriptions of combat and his emotions during his service among the best I have read in that I felt I could understand, in as much as someone who has never been in combat, what he went through during his 25 missions over the Reich and his time between missions, on the ground interacting with English civilians.

Radio Controlled Model Aircraft by Adrian Vale
5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 6 Mar 2013
I got this book about 23 years ago and I still have it and on occasion I still refer to it, it's intelligent, informative, clear and concise and has everthing a newcomer needs to know and learn and its also very humorous. If your a beginner this book has about 3 years worth of radio control magazine beginner articles all in one handy place. it's written for the glow fuel user in terms of equipment, but the auctual flying techniques are the same regardless what pulls the aircraft through the Air. I love this book, it brings back lots of great flying memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must read book, 29 Jun 2012
I usually read books on war/history, but on ocassion search out something different and it has to be good for me to stick with it. This book is epic and if you have only a passing interest in human nature/science you'll love this book.
Its written in a simple, direct but fast moving manner.
Great read!
