Commando: Deadly Seas: Six of the Best Commando Navy Books Ever! (Commando for Action and Adventure)

1.0 out of 5 stars Feeling cheated, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst appreciating the publication of what I thought was more of this wonderful series, I was terribly disappointed to find that this was merely a rehash of previously published material. I felt cheated to discover that all 4 books contained stories that had already been featured in "The Dirty Dozen" and "True Brit" anthologies.
There are thousands of Commando stories to choose from and surely the publishers could have used some of these rather than foisting this on an unsuspecting public. I don't remember seeing any mention of them being re-issues.

I don't feel that this book and its companion volumes can be recommended at all. If you alread have "The Dirty Dozen" and "True Brit" then don't bother with these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good quality, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the technology currently available for clean up of sound quality, this is unacceptable. It sounds like no attempt was made and the original low quality tracks were simply stuck on cd and released.

I first came across these in a bargain bookshop and I must say they are quite wonderful! The stories are funny, quaint and quite enthralling. The actors surpass themselves and I'll be getting more of them. Pity there's so few in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I don't have a couple of the recordings in any other format. However, I was very disappointed in the quality of many of the recordings. I don't mean the fact that many of them are very old, rehashed, made up from existing bits etc. I have 20 year old cassette versions of a few of these shows that are better quality. You'd think with all of the available technology, they could have made a better job of this. I have transferred some of my old BBC cassettes to CD, and the quality is better than some of these.
I would only recommend this if you can't get a copy of any of the recordings any other way
