5.0 out of 5 stars This window vacuum really works., 10 Dec. 2014
It does exactly what it says on the tin, I love it. It is far better than messing about with so-called absorbent cloths and far quicker on these cold and frosty mornings, buy one.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1745 rebellion, 22 Aug. 2013
The author states on page 102, that Bonnie Prince Charlie got as far south as Derby before being "turned back". I believe, with information from other sources, that they turned back as a result of false information being given to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Claymore, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swords and Swordsmen (Hardcover)
The author states as fact, that it is wrong to call a Scottish two handed sword a Claymore. His statement is based on the findings of Claude blair, who said that he thought that this was so. How can the opinion of Claude Blair suddenly become fact, just because Mike Loades believes it to be a fact. It is not a fact, just the opinion of some, and the oposite, the opinion of others, therefore, neither of which is a fact, just an opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars pictorial sword history, 13 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From its earliest use, to modern day, this book shows the development of the sword in all parts of the world as an object to kill or maim; to impose one's will over another; an object of honour, and one of great craftmanship and beauty. Excellent snippets of history and illustrations on every page, it does not go into great detail on any item because of its modest size, but it is a huge subject and other volumes exist that provide more detail on any given weapon. I would view it as a great starting point for anyone with an interest in edged weapons, as it would certainly whet one's appetite to learn more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smiffy's Katana, 20 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an inexpensive toy representing a samurai sword, for the money, this is my favourite. It looks the part, is in proper proportion, has a scabbard and therefore looks "real" to a 4 year old. As for its educational value, that depends on how parents educate their offspring with relation to the use of weapons, and as for durability, that depends on how many enemies the child has to dispatch.

5.0 out of 5 stars British in India, 16 Feb. 2010

Britain doing what she used to do well; imposing her will on others, to get them to do her bidding, and often to die for their efforts. It is an interesting book, and filled with lots of details and facts that may not be widely known.

If one wishes to identify a bayonet from 1650 onwards, then this publication, with over 500 colour photographs of 300 bayonets, has to be on ones bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Egyptian Queens, 5 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am afraid that I cannot review this book as it was a present for a good friend. I did know that she had seen the book and liked it; she is very much into ancient egypt. She said that it was informative and she just loved the illustrations. Apparently, most publications deal with the Pharaohs and not the Queens, this book joins up the dots.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Cavalry Swords, 3 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a collector and restorer for many years and I am always anxious to read any book on my favourite subject. This was no exception, as a colleague has this book and I found it very useful as an aid to identifying various weapons, both from the text and its illustrations, therefore it needed to be on my bookshelf, which it now is.
