5.0 out of 5 stars Nice cavalry action book. :), 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Over by Christmas: The Retreat from Mons (Kindle Edition)
Good recipe: take a fictive character a bugler from the BEF cavalry, and just riding through all the famous British episodes of the August 1914. Like:Mons, Surrender at St. Quentin, Affair at Nery. I really enjoyed this tour, as I did enjoyed Mr Warren previous book: Goodbye Piccadilly. For £0.77 was a bargain both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal attention to detail., 28 Jun. 2014
By 
J. Carter "botany-bill" (Somerset) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
The author has obviously spent an enormous amount of time on researching this book. The attention to detail is incredible. How did he know the mechanics of the machine gun, the equipment of the cavalry units down to the last detail, the geography of the area. All of this information makes for a book that smacks of authenticity. Perhaps he was there!! Mind you he would now be about 110. So perhaps he is just a young man who has spent his time wisely in research. A great book. What's next?

Really enjoyable story, well worth a look at the price. Easy reading, but the storyline keeps moving along very nicely. I'll be looking for more by the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "hit" for the author, 13 April 2014

This review is from: Over by Christmas: The Retreat from Mons (Kindle Edition)
This was the third A.J. Warren book I read after Goodbye Piccadilly and Farewell Leicester Square and it did not disappoint. It tells of the early days of the BEF and Cavalry in their attempts to halt Germany's huge advancing War Machine in the early weeks of the Great War and again, although the author acknowledges a few historical factual inaccuracies, this does not take anything away from the book as an excellent account of this period in the early weeks of the War when the German forces were all powerful and looked likely indeed to have it "over by Christmas".

This review is from: Over by Christmas: The Retreat from Mons (Kindle Edition)
An excellent and readable story of the all round fighting abilities of the Cavalry. Brings history to life with that little touch of 'artistic licence'. I enjoyed it.
