Battle of Jutland, 30th May to 1st June, 1916: Official dispatches with appendixes
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Jutland - the facts!, 2 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have not read this completely, but to anyone with an historical turn of mind it is thrilling to read the orders actually transmitted at the time. A very good read and an absolutely invaluable research tool. There are a few misprinted letters but this might be a result of action confusion , or reproduction problems. However , it all remains intelligible and a great historical treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true account of the reality of war at sea., 10 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and authentic account of life on the lower deck during the Second World War. This brought to life the reality of the hardship our predecessors endured, and their absolute tenacity of purpose. The living conditions and particularly the "canteen messing" are all vividly and accurately recorded. This is an historic account, worthy of academic study by any naval historian.

5.0 out of 5 stars The magic of Argerich and Abbado., 9 April 2014

These recordings are astonishing. Though very well known Concerti Martha Argerich establishes the authority of her absolute mastery of these works and the orcestra respond appropriately. Listening to this disc takes pleasure to a new level. They are simply wonderful and unique recordings.

This review is from: Warspite (Kindle Edition)
Written with careful attention to naval language and terminology it gives a vivid picture of the triumphs and vicissitudes of this famous ship and the officers and men that served in her. It truly shows why we still speak of her with affection and awe 100 years after her launching.

Hands to Action Stations - Memoirs of a very young Naval Officer (1939 - 1945)
Price: £2.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands to Action Stations - a wonderful account, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This simple account of the life of a very young man who joined the Fleet at a crucial time in WWII gives a very realistic picture of an officer's service in ships at that time. He was fortunate in serving in the Flagship of the Home Fleet in that it enabled him to witness major events over a protracted period of the War and one which was a significantperiod of his personal development. From a naval point of view it gives a wonderful account of the ship environment and atmosphere that prevailed at that time and gained such a reputation for the Service. This is a wonderful account of events for anyone that has served in the Royl Navy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tally- ho Life and War in a submarine., 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a stirring tale of the united determination of the Captain and ship's {or boat's) company to prosecute their warfare in an often overlooked theatre. The technical aspects of operating a submarine are presented in a readable and enlightening way and point to the endless adaptability and competence of all involved and the understated courage of every man onboard during the repeated patrols in hostile waters. The less formal atmosphere than would be expected in a surface vessel is amply portrayed and yet the exceptional espirit de corps generated within the team that cannot afford any passengers generates its own overwhelmingly powerful discipline. The resulting and famed "can-do"spirit is amply demonstrated by the flexibility they demonstrate in using their limited resources, particularly living space, to support the clandestine operations of the Army.
This book is a fine, well-written tribute to an outstanding "Boat" and a Captain and crew that served in her.
