5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 16 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic war movie. Made in the middle of WW2 it is part story and part propaganda but none the worse for that. You might say that most of the characters are clichés but the story is good and it makes a good afternoon's entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little book, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Welch is a leading academic expert in the field of wartime propaganda and this book gives a very good overview of current thinking about the Nazis use of propaganda. A must-have if you are interested in the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting if a little dated, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't perhaps the most up to date scholarship on this subject but is nevertheless full of lots of interesting pieces of information and ideas. Very well worth reading if you are interested in this subject.

If you want to learn about this subject then this is the book to buy. Welch is a leading expert in the field of wartime propaganda and he writes very clearly and entertainingly.

I used it as a source in an OU essay about wartime propaganda and it was very useful indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful performance, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic performance of a great work and all enthusiasts should own it. Curzon's playing is really top class as is the LSO's under Szell. The recording is very good for its age but perhaps the violins are a little glacial in tone at the top end, not that this should put you off in any way!

A very easy recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new star, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yuja Wang is a wonderful talent. Her technical skill is undoubted and given her looks she is bound to have a big career. However I think she has some way to go in being able to fill the music with the emotional feeling needed to make a great performance. This comes through on this CD in the Rachmaninov which doesn't quite catch fire. The Prokofiev is stronger and a fine performance.

This is still worth investigating but there are better versions especially of the Rachmaninov.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent wipes, 2 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got these for my daughter and daughter-in-law who use them and they tell me that they are excellent. They work well as wipes, which one would expect, and they seem to be kind to a baby's sensitive skin. As babies differ I guess you should try before buying in case your baby is particularly sensitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really well made, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are lovely for drinking your latte out of. They are made of very thick glass and feel like they will last a lifetime. However you need to be sure you are making your latte properly and not using boiling milk! If you do this you will not be able to pick the glass up as it will be too hot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant (with a small caveat), 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you buy just one history of postwar Europe this is the one to have. Judt has the knack of explaining complex affairs in a clear and simple manner. Ok it's a long book but its a very complex period so it takes some explaining.

My one caveat is that the print is rather small. Using varifocal glasses I have to position the book very precisely to read it easily which is tiring.

Recommended.

The Origins of the First World War: Controversies and Consensus (Making History)
by Annika Mombauer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £26.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want to understand the current historiography of this subject look no further. Annika Mombauer is a leading authority on this subject and writes very clearly. As this is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1 this should be on the shopping lsit of everybody who is interested in this subject.

Recommended.
