Crete: The Battle and the Resistance
Crete: The Battle and the Resistance
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent account, 13 Oct. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As always with Antony Beevor, this is an extremely authoritative and comprehensive account, but at the same time an easy read and not without humour on occasion. I read this whilst in Crete, so it was all the more pertinent. Neither the Allied nor German forces come out of this with any glory, but the Cretan civilian resistance was the fiercest the Germans ever faced, and the local peoples' bravery is fully acknowledged by Beevor.

Excellent book telling the story of Vikings in North America in a clear & concise style. Presents the evidence in both written and photographic form. Debunks once and for all the "Columbus discovered America" version of events

5.0 out of 5 stars Vikings in America, 18 April 2012
This review is from: Vikings in America (Paperback)
Having recently read a few more general books on the vikings I became interested in the more specific issue of their settlements in North America. I found this book to be an excellent narrative on the subject, following a logical and well-reasoned path describing the various stages by which the Vikings undoubtedly reached North America. It deals objectively with the evidence, not attempting to present as "fact" that which is still speculation. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Indian Hill Railways, 16 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Indian Hill Railways [DVD] (DVD)
This is a brilliant mini series, which beautifully captures not only the essence of three narrow gauge mountain railways but also that of the people who work on the lines and live nearby. Added to which, the scenery is breathtaking.

I believe these are now international heritage sites and rightly so.

For me the highlight is the steam "beauty parade" which shows off some fantastic locomotives in all their glory. What is abundantly clear is the love and dedication of the staff towards these ageing but faithful machines.

All in all a great DVD set and throughly recommended

This HAMA cover is both attractive and practical. As well as the main storage for the laptop there is another ample pocket for accessories, together with a carrying strap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Apollo 11 - NASA DVD set, 22 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a very good DVD set. Much of it is raw original footage, but in my opinion that adds to the drama and effect. It is staggering to see one of Man's greatest technological achievements 40 years on, via an extremely poor quality black & white TV transmission!. It's also very enlightening to see how primitive cameras, computers etc were on Apollo compared with today's equipment, as is now available at any high street superstore.

Personally I'd have liked a bit more of an overview on Disc 1 of the Apollo set up - how each module fitted together, and most particularly how the lunar & command modules docked & undocked.

But that's a minor criticism. The sheer power of Saturn V lift off is awesome, and the shots of the final minute or so of the lunar approach & descent are fantastic, and even now the tension of those moments comes across on the DVD. Then of course the finale when Armstrong sets foot on the Moon. Like billions of people at the time I can remember exactly where I was at that moment, and it's great to re-live it via this DVD set. Recommended
