The Grand Fleet; Warship Design and Development 1906-1922
by D. K. Brown
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellents nuts and bolt book on the development of naval warships up to and after the Great War, 8 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book full of nuts and bolts detail about a dynamic period of naval development from the building of the revolutionary HMS Dreadnaught in 1906 to the designs developed after the experiences of the Great War and as well as covering capital ships such battleships and aircraft carriers also deals with the design of lesser craft down to patrol boats. Thoroughly recommended.

The Count: The First Novella Introducing His Majesty's New World
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable introduction to a new world jointly discovered by the British and Americans towards the end of the 19th century, 8 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this book. I like science fiction / fantasy and I gather this is the first in a series setting the scene of a new world discovered by the British & Americans towards the end of the nineteenth century. I look forward to reading the sequels. My only criticism is it was too short but probably that is to be expected from a book in novella format.

Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, factual, illustrated ebook, 2 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a soldier and do know a lot about weapons but I thought this book was an excellent one providing pictures of the different nations rifles, pistols, machine guns etc with a detailed description. It would also provide and interest people with no prior knowledge of the subject. I would recommend it.


The Locomotive Giggleswick: LMS Patriot Class No. 5538
The Locomotive Giggleswick: LMS Patriot Class No. 5538
by Nigel Mussett
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A paperback on the LMS Patriot class locomotives and particularly the one named after Giggleswick school, 15 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because I have an oil painting of this particular locomotive heading a train on the Settle-Carlisle line in the 1950s. I came across the book, a paperback, by chance and it was for this reason I bought it. It tells the story of the Patriot class of locomotive and in particular of one of the class which was named after Giggleswick school in Yorkshire. Obviously a narrow topic but well done.


Air War Over Korea
Air War Over Korea
by Robert Jackson
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, illustrated book on the air war in Korea., 15 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Air War Over Korea (Hardcover)
This was an excellent book. It was crammed with photographs and dealt with true air war over Korea in the early 1950s between the Soviet block - North Korea, China and the USSR - against the UN but primarily the US but with British aircraft operating off carriers and various Commonwealth squadrons from Australia & South Africa. A fascinating period with a mixture of piston engined aircraft, often dating from WWII, and the new era of jet aircraft engaging each other. If you are interested in the period and aircraft therefrom this is an excellent book which also tells the story of the war from the viewpoint of the air element.
