The Way Ahead [DVD]
The Way Ahead [DVD]
Dvd ~ David Niven
Price: £5.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Way Ahead [DVD] (DVD)
This is an iconic mid-war film. It's basically a piece of propaganda aimed at boosting morale and sending the message "We will win if we all pull together". It's full of all the stock actors of the period and it's very nicely done. Ok it's not the greatest story ever told but it's a very enjoyable watch.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it covers!, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are lots of interesting posters here. There is also a nice introduction by Gary Sheffield, Professor of War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton and the descriptive text is interesting. However the posters are nearly all British, Commonwealth or US with a few French thrown in. There are no German, Russian or Austrian posters here, which is a shame.

So worth having but by no means a comprehensive survey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of iconic posters, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are interested in WW2 posters this is a great book.

It has 7 chapters each devoted to the posters of a country - British and Commonwealth, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and US. Each chapter has a brief introduction and each poster has a description to clarify any uncertainty as to meaning (key phrases are translated into English).

This is a really good book for the serious student as well as the interested layman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 2 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For a number of years I have used Fairy Platinum dishwasher tablets because I found them to be far superior to anything else. These new(?) Finish tablets are just as good. I tried one on a heavy mixed load including a casserole dish, saucepans and glasses, and everything came out sparkling on a medium wash cycle. I was especially happy with the casserole dish as I had forgotten to put it in soak overnight and the grease was baked on.

An easy recommendation!

This young star is definitely "one to watch". Her pianism is exhilarating! A clear recommendation to anybody who is interested in the piano.

Other Side of the Hill: Germany's Generals, Their Rise and Fall, with Their Own Account of Military Events, 1939-45

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An important source, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Liddell Hart interviewed the defeated German Generals after WW2 and this book is the result. It is a fascinating account but the reader must take great care as Liddell Hart seemed to take what he was told at face value. Nevertheless you should read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the Military Historian, 21 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Halder was Chief of the German General Staff through the French Campaign of 1940 and the Russian Campaign of 1941. As such he was a key witness and his diaries are an important primary source. You need to have read this if you are interested in this period.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this!, 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unless you are careful you won't notice that this is just 22 pages long and is in fact just the introduction, authors notes etc. You get none of the journal. I will be sending it back!

If you want the journal I think you will have to buy a second hand copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent background book, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a collection of essays exploring European history between 1900 and 1945. It is used as a background reading book on the Open University course I am taking at the moment.

It's not a narrative so you might not wish to read it from cover to cover. However it does provide really good background to events and is full of fascinating information from eminent historians. If you wanted a quick overview of the period you won't get much better than this.

A clear recommendation for those interested in the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful, 7 Jan. 2014

This is beautifully sung and beautifully recorded. If you are interested in this type of polyphony then buy this and lay back and let it wash over you. A perfect CD for mental relaxation.
