Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A goldmine of evidence for the teacher and student of the period
It came as a revelation to me that,with the help of American expertise, much oil was drilled in Sherwood Forest

4.0 out of 5 stars The elites exposed, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lucidly written and analysed in depth, this book exposes relentlessly the corruption of the press barons,journalists, the police and, if not the corruption, at least the incompetence of the judiciary (the reputation of Lord Denning takes a hammering).Nowhere is this more highlighted than the way in which Stephen Ward was left to hang out and dry.

The book does much to help our understanding of why the Conservative Government became demoralised by 1963

2.0 out of 5 stars Unbalanced analysis of British society, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a disappointment after the author's fine book on" Austerity Britain" because far too much of the book was allocated to architecture and buildings to the relative neglect of social,cultural and popular history


The Korean War (Pan Military Classics)
The Korean War (Pan Military Classics)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten war brought to life, 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elegantly written by a military historian who analyses the war from the perspective of all the combatants.

The assessment of the achievements and flaws of General MacArthur make for particularly compelling reading.


The Diary of a RAF Lancaster Bomber Pilot
The Diary of a RAF Lancaster Bomber Pilot
Price: £4.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Fading memories, 12 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed with this book mainly because it lacked gripping details compared with other Second World War diaries and
biographies: it failed to reflect adequately the tensions experienced by the crew before scrambling, boarding,flying and,dropping bombs from the Lancaster bomber.


The Cuban Missile Crisis: A Very Brief History
The Cuban Missile Crisis: A Very Brief History
Price: £2.23

3.0 out of 5 stars The Cold War when it nearly became hot, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a thoughtful analysis of the causes and consequences of a crisis in the superpower relations which, as the author makes clear, was the closest the world had come to a nuclear confrontation.

The new evidence which emerges is the discreet role played in the defusion of the tension by Robert Kennedy and the Russian ambassador to the USA.

This book will be particularly helpful to the student studying the Cuban missile crisis at sixth form and undergraduate level.

5.0 out of 5 stars abundant wit and mirth, 8 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book of the best of forty years of my favourite radio comedy programme irresistible.Other members of the house wondered why guffaws of laughter kept resonanting from the lounge at all hours
