4.0 out of 5 stars A must read!, 27 Oct. 2014

All Bletchley Park (in the war) stories are of great interest - but that, or any one of, Alan Turing is the greatest! It seems to me to be a fact that we would have lost the war but for him and his likes there (very few top knobs - although many supporters - indeed). How he made it all work and then with the man Flowers thought up and made the computer is quite beyond me and many more like me BUT his (and their) story is most interesting and is compulsive reading. Even though we cannot understand any of it! Do buy this and any of like-books and you will not be disappointed - even Turing's personal life is more interesting than usual even though times were different and very strange then.

Disobeying Hitler: German Resistance in the Last Year of WWII
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Reality dawns., 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It contains all I wanted to know about the lead up to the ending of the Second World War from inside the other camp (i.e. Hitler's side) : it contains all the facts I found myself (previously) short of. Well written and definitely worthy of a read with much knowledge within its pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read but complicated words though simple themes., 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very difficult writing to understand and therefore read: but it is in reality a good novel well worth its many complicated themes and particularly good about the First World War - or a simple (but complicated) part of it - starting at about the middle of the book but leading to the outcome of the lives of the main characters. Well worth reading and with a factual ending - as did the War.

A Stretcher Bearer's Diary
A Stretcher Bearer's Diary
Price: £1.20

4.0 out of 5 stars A tale of truth,well told., 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've never before read a Stretcher Bearer's account of what went on in those murderous Trenches when the boys all went in there smiling - only, mostly, to be shot up and horribly injured (on both sides) and it is worth reading if only to see that the S B's took their share of the horrors and injuries they previously tried to help with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank God it (as he saw the War) and its successor are over - hopefully never to return., 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely a book to be read by all those caught, as I am, in the First World War. It somehow brings to one's mind the horrors that even an experienced soldier went through even though he was able through his training to put all the death and other terrible injuries he saw, continuously, to the back of what he regarded as his duty though he continued to see the carnage and was able, somehow or other, to bear it - or, at least, never acknowledge it. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading, 31 July 2014

A brilliant book and the writing is superb and electrifying....I found I difficult to put it down till the next day. He has a way of writing to resurrect the horror of all that happened and to involve one in it (Heaven forbid). He really could write down all the consternation, dismay, dread, fear, fright and panic with the terror they all felt all the time they continued to fight....as they were told they must. His writing is about the most loathsome fighting but intensely vivid and exceptional I have read on extracts of the First World War.
