Lorraine 1944 Patton vs Manteuffel Campaign series
Lorraine 1944 Patton vs Manteuffel Campaign series
by Steven J. Zaloga
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good description of Lorraine September 1944, 7 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a short overview of a campaign I knew little about prior to some war gaming. I have bought Osprey books before and they have never let me down. This book was promptly delivered, contains good maps and good detail on the fighting in September 1944, and some interesting views to consider. Met my needs so I am happy and would recommend

Was delivered promptly. Does exactly what is says it does, and has taken slightly more more than usual use & wear and tear well.


Salerno 1943: The Allies invade southern Italy (Campaign)
Salerno 1943: The Allies invade southern Italy (Campaign)
by Angus Konstam
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Coverage of an often forgotten near disaster, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all Osprey books this provides a goof over view of the Salerno landings,their planning, execution, near disaster and final victory for the Allies (albeit at great cost). The maps are good and there is an interesting selection of pictures. Im not totally convinced by the "birds eye" view of the battles as they tend to be cluttered and perhaps suit a bigger sized book.

The issue I have (and hence 4 not 5 stars) is that the campaign isnt told Chronologically, rather it flips between the British and the US Corps,so events are told out of sync from how the commanders faced them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and comperhensive, 14 Dec. 2013

Detailed and comprehensive analysis of the Crusader (which my Grandfather servered in in the Desert) and the lesser known Covenanter Tanks. Whilst the technical analysis, and that of the variants is very detailed, it would have been useful to have more details of the tanks performance in battle (for the Crusader) and what the crews view of it was.

My partner loved it and it goes well with a range ouf outfits. The minor downside is that it wasnt clear that it was being dispatched from the US until after the order was placed.


Mayfair Games Europe GmbH MFG04862 "Clash of Wills Shiloh 1862" Game
Mayfair Games Europe GmbH MFG04862 "Clash of Wills Shiloh 1862" Game
Price: £24.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and deceptive game, 24 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been looking for a wargame covering Shiloh for some time and came across this on Amazon.

It was delivered in the stated deadliner,is easy to set up and plays smoothly. Its my first introduction to the system, and its not as simple or as predicatable as it may appear. Marshalling your forces to attack or defend is not easy, and requires you to be thinking ahead and not just responding to cards and dice rolls. But it does simulate the way C&C broke down during the battle.

My slight niggle is that as the rules could have been better laid out, and inclde some historical notes. In terms of the game I would have included more Generals who's actions were an influence on the day (Sherman, Prentiss and Wallace for the Union and the Confederate Corps Commanders). But its a fun and free flowing game.


Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the DUrbervilles (Professor Moriarty Novels)
Professor Moriarty: The Hound of the DUrbervilles (Professor Moriarty Novels)
by Kim Newman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Slightly odd but very funny, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this on Amazon having been discussing Sherlock Holmes with friends and family and was drawn to the title.

Although Moriaty is the central character the collective short stories have a variety literary antecedents including Holmes, HG Wells, Flashman and others. It has some clever ideas and twists and in places is very funny (probably weakest at the beginning and end) as a stand alone collection.

If you are looking for a change, some amusement and a new slant on Sherlock Holmes Victorian England this is the book for you.
