4.0 out of 5 stars British Steam Patriots
Every page of this book (just about) has an illustration of one of these interesting engines. The author has gone to a lot of trouble to document this class of engine from first to last.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the cover price - buy only if discounted.
This book will look good on your bookshelf or coffee table due to excellent dust wrapper design. The content is however a real disappointment. The descriptions of each loco are littered with typographical errors, spelling mistakes etc throughout and inaccuracies extend to several of the photograph captions. Some of the errors are so repetitive they become irritating and...

This book will look good on your bookshelf or coffee table due to excellent dust wrapper design. The content is however a real disappointment. The descriptions of each loco are littered with typographical errors, spelling mistakes etc throughout and inaccuracies extend to several of the photograph captions. Some of the errors are so repetitive they become irritating and overall suggest that the manuscript was not subject to any form of proofreading. The only saving grace is that by buying this book one will help fund the construction of the replica locomotive.

This review is from: British Steam Patriots: Celebrating the New National Memorial Locomotive (Kindle Edition)
I was particularly interested to find the story of the new engine that is being built as a mobile memorial for those who have lost their lives in conflict - The Unkown Warrior.

Anyone interested in steam will appreciate this book.
Recommended.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves steam engines, and particularly LMS fans. It is a great book, with photos and facts. I am delighted to have bought it. The patriots were elegant engines. I always liked them. This book also tells us about the rebuild being built at Llangollen.

If you were a train spotter as I was in the mid 1950's this book will remind you of a time when steam trains were an every day sight on Britain's railways with every Patriot captured in film and captions on the names given to the locomotives and why the V.C'S were given to the men who received them, a very good read.
