Excellent customer service: my order's been lost by Royal mail, and after I have contacted Case Collection UK, they have sent me a replacement straight away which I have received in 2 days. It's the second time I buy this case, it's very nice and lasts ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is essential reading for anyone interested in World War One, whether you're a student or scholar. Taylor is an entertaining writer and his wit and judgement still resonate today.

This book concerns itself more with European History, rather than just being British focused, but War by Timetable is all the stronger for it. As with Norman Stone's recent book on WW1 the genius of Taylor is his brevity. There will be books twice as long as this one published in the next few years but they will, at best, say half as much.
Despite the grave subject matter there is still a wonderful, dry humour to Taylor's prose which popular historians of today might wish to emulate more, or be envious of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting mystery!, 3 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Stone Cold (Kindle Edition)
The first chapter of this book had me absolutely hooked, it set an aura of mystery and intrigue for the rest of the book that really enticed me. I thought the author gave a really good balance of enigmatic adventure, thrills and twists to make me want to keep reading. There were elements of supernatural in this book, which normally I'm not 100% taken by however in this case it was served with a good amount of realistic elements so it did not come across as an overwhelming factor or far fetched. I found this to be a great, interesting read.

This review is from: Sweet Temptation (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book because I wanted to spend my time at the beach reading something light, but interesting. This was the first book of Lucy Diamond I have ever read, but since I loved it so much, I am planning to buy them all. She reminds me a bit of Sophie Kinsella's writing style.

Apart from being a story about friendship, it is allso a story of commitment, a real boost for those who need to work on their weight, a boost for shy and not confident people.. A very positive book.

You will not be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars A sophisticated read, 30 Aug. 2013
This review is from: A Kept Woman (Kindle Edition)
Although this novel is quite long, the journey it takes us through is worth it. I don't want to reveal too much about the plot, but McGowan's style and imagination is immensely impressive. This book is far more sophisticated than a lot of others I've read in the genre; Serena and her family come across as very real. An inspiring tale about realising your own strength and rebuilding your life from scratch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone, 29 Aug. 2013
This collection of short stories and non-fiction truly has something for everyone. Alongside crime stories (even an appearance from Sherlock by Arthur Conan Doyle), there's various accounts of paranormal activity, political sketches, an interview with Pierre Curie for science enthusiasts and the history of cricket for sport fans. There is such a wide range of subjects that there's sure to be something to pique everybody's interest.


Unheard, Unseen: Submarine E14 and the Dardanelles
Unheard, Unseen: Submarine E14 and the Dardanelles
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Unheard Unseen, 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fascinating piece of history on a very specific part of WW2 - Churchill's plan to use the E14 submarines to infiltrate the Dardanelles and secure the passageway. Boyle writes a very personal account, detailing the life of the submarines commander, Courtenay Boyle, setting the scene for the battle and writing in detail the outcome of the manoeuvre. He really captures the fear and anticipation felt by the men and the cramped and often squalid conditions of the submarines. Well worth reading if you are interested in sea warfare.


Sword Of Rome: Rubicon
Sword Of Rome: Rubicon
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Roman series on market., 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best Roman series on market. Author has set things up so that books work as stand alones, and there is also a long arc to story. Haven't read all books in order but have still followed plot and characters.
Rubicon has History, Caesar and Lucius Oppius standing at the crossroads. Rome is on the brink of Civil War but Oppius is keen to start a new life, away from the army. Fate will intervene though.
Sword of Rome is an excellent historical thriller that keeps up high standards of other books. Central characters are engaging and a shade more complex than certain idealised heroes. Supporting cast, as always, provide colour and humour.
Am not alone in being frustrated that author didn't write series of novels, as opposed to novellas, but don't let this put you off.
Looking forward to Sword of Rome Pharsalus!
