5.0 out of 5 stars Another le Carre masterpiece., 28 July 2013

This review is from: Our Kind of Traitor (Paperback)
Another fine example of le Carre's storytelling. A master of cold war fiction he has been able to adapt and provide us with tales in a variety of settings. Only wish Smiley could make an appearance.

Although Rwanda is now undergoing a remarkable resurgence many of us still try to understand what led to the horror that occured there. This is an intelligent accout of the Portugese evacuation. A gripping read.

This is not one of his better known songs. You do not have to be a Jolson fan to appreciate this tune.

Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
by Romeo Dallaire
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.08

4.0 out of 5 stars The true story of a genocide., 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoy history that provides me with the stories behind the headlines. This is a stunning example told by the UN Commander during the genocide in Rwanda. There is some chilling details but the real issue is how the UN failed to provide any meaningful intervention. If they could not agree to assist in such circumstances just when could they. This is a timely read if one has any interest in how the world will deal with failed states an the labyrynthian conflicts that seem to be on the increase.

4.0 out of 5 stars History at its very best, 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Cambodian nightmare came under some scrutiny after the film "The Killing Fields" but I never fully grasped what led up to this event. This book fills in the gaps but, like myself, some readers will be intrigued by the character of Pol Pot. Behind one of the largest slaughters in history we do not find the monster we mighy expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars A economical but useful tool., 7 Mar. 2013

While I am not a great photographer I do have a digital SLR but find it too cumbersom for carrying about, I have looked for a small digital but I really wanted one that had a viewfinder. This really was a great solution and I am very impressed with the quality of the camera and the shots it produces.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a story., 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We often read bits about wars in Africa and I for one find some quite unfathomable. I found this first hand account of rebels fighting in Liberia truly engrossing.
