Understanding War: History and Theory of Combat
Understanding War: History and Theory of Combat
by Trevor Nevitt Dupuy
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes the loner does succeed, 2 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With the advent of computers attempting to computer model war became quite a craze. Dupuy was the one who succeeded and without much in the way of support from the relevant institutions. He has still not been forgiven. The great unwashed wargaming community love him however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Kindle, 28 May 2017
A year ago the older Kindles were the best. This is no longer so. Pocketbook Touch Lux 3 now is the best and also the second best. Kindle's strength lies n the fact that it is connected to the best bookstore on the net. The people who designed the latest and most powerful Kindles really ought to read a couple of books about usability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needs a brief paper manual, 18 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took me some time to find out how to use it as an ereader, at first it seemed to me that it could not be used as such.
My ephone (Android) suddenly used about all it electricity in a day. It was a couple of days before I discovered that the reason was that the Nexus' wifi connection was ON. Turning it OFF solved the problem.
It also took me a few days to figure out how to copy to an from the tablet (I use Total Commander).
The tablet need a brief (paper) manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars An early Charteris, 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an early Charteris and therefore not his best writing. He learned to do better. It is nevertheless a pretty good read.
The hero seems to be some early version of the Saint. Inspector Teal is present and also the Saint's car, the Hirondel.


The, bandit
The, bandit
by Leslie CHARTERIS
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing idea badly executed, 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The, bandit (Hardcover)
In The Holy Terror or The Saint Versus Scotland Yard (Saint 08) in the story Inland Revenue Simon Templar supposedly wrote a novel titled The Pirate which features a non-anglo super-brigand/hero named Mario. Charteris in his early years wrote a novel, The Bandit, which also features a non-anglo super-brigand/hero.
The idea is amusing, but The Bandit is unfortunately not very good.
