5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best, 29 April 2014

Together with the first part, “A Dream of Glory", this two volume biography of Nelson by Dr Sugden is unlikely to be surpasses as it is both well written and authoritative. Dr Sugden gives sources for all of his contentions, and differentiates between provable facts and likely probabilities. Both volumes give life to Nelson as a man, rather than simply as an Admiral, and might well be of interest to someone who is interested in the social, rather than the military History of the period. Others have used superlatives to describe these volumes and I can only echo these sentiments. My only personal quibble, and it is a personal quibble, is that I would have liked to have seen a little more of Nelson's friendship with Collingwood. If you only read one biography of Nelson, this has to be it.

Mens braces wide adjustable and elastic suspenders Y shape with a very strong clips - Heavy duty (Dark Blue)

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong, 29 April 2014

Not elegant, but very strong. Ideal for those of us who use trouser pockets to carry everything. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to keep their trousers up, rather than to wear braces (U.S. - suspenders) as a fashion statement.

5.0 out of 5 stars High standards maintained., 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since 1900 when only the German navy was covered, "Weyers" has provided anyone interested in naval matters with up to date information on the ships involved. For the majority of major types both plans and photographs are provided as well as basic details such as dimensions, armament, speed and propulsion. Whilst the detail might not be as great as that given in Jane’s Fighting Ships, and there are fewer photographs, this is more than made up for by the difference in cost. With Jane's now costing over £700, and “Weyers” well under £100, for most budgets there really is no choice. The decision made some years ago to provide the very useful introduction, giving an overview of the worlds navies, in both German and English has made the volume even more useful to those of us whose German is minimal to non existent. The only downside is that we will have to wait another three years for the next edition.
