Winter Men
Winter Men

Price: £7.64

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 21 Aug. 2016
This review is from: Winter Men (Paperback)
The book is describing how two ordinary men are drawn into the Nazi war mascine. Very realistic picture of the environment and atmosphere. Only small mistake on the location of the Polish-German border in the Inter War Years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series by Portillo., 16 April 2016
Excellent. If you are interested in Europe before The First World War and in travelling this is the DVD for you. I look forward to series 4. I can recommend the book "1913" by Charles Emmerson as a companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent analysis of First World war alliances, 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting analytical approach to the Alliances leading up to the First World War. A good supplement to Kennans classical works on Bismarcks alliance system and on the Franco-Russian alliance.

Excellent book which gives a balanced account of Hitler's and Stalin's actions in the Bloodslands. The maps are wonderful - an inspiration to other history books.


An Officer and a Spy
An Officer and a Spy
by Robert Harris
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

2.0 out of 5 stars St Petersburg NOT Moscow., 21 Feb. 2015
This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Paperback)
I love historical novels and I have just started to read this book by Robert Harris. I have enjoyed Fatherland and Enigma. But it seems very odd in this book that he does not know that the Russian capital was St Petersburg and NOT Moscow in this historical period. The Best historical novels get the geography and historical background correct to my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Standard Biography of Napoleon, 24 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Napoleon the Great (Hardcover)
Even the most British of the Britons Winston Churchill admired Napoleon. Andrew Roberts show us all the facets of this very unique and important figure. Napoleon was at the same time a dictator and a reformer. I presume that this work will become the new standard biography of Napoleon.


The Hidden Perspective: The Military Conversations of 1906-1914
The Hidden Perspective: The Military Conversations of 1906-1914
by David Owen
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Important contribution to understand Britain's role up to the First World War, 14 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent account of the secret negotiations between Britain and France. Britain's support to France up to the First World War was not necessarily contributive to preserving peace because it led to the isolation of Germany.
