3.0 out of 5 stars Decent for the discounted price, not worth full price ..., 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent for the discounted price, not worth full price.
Thinnish fabric, well made, sleeves to short for me, but that was a bit of a gamble.
All in all, you get what you pay for. If you get the right size, it's a decent enough everyday office shirt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great protection... at a cost., 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Protects fine, dropped from 5 feet without problems. But is slippery when laid on back. So will fall more easily!
Not to great fit, just a bit too wide. Difficult to get on and off. Cover over charging port only leaves room for small Lightning connector. Had to alter the connector for my car kit. Dust cover is also fiddly when charging, might just cut it off.
All in all, decent but not great. Will keep on looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blunt point, sharp edge., 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
blunt point makes this a great first knife for a child. My 9yo daughter loves it, for whittling etc.
Bought another one for myself, ground a point to it, and use that for gardening and carpentry.
Used it as an make-do chisel when out on the roof, and for prying out and removing old tar-papertacks :-o.
All kinds of abuse but easily sharpened again.
Great purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite, 2 Jun. 2012
Sorry to say this book does not live up to expectations. If charitable, I would say that the scope is too broad. There is of course a problem with lacking or debatable source material. This means that the author falls back on the well known classics (Livy, Polibius etc). Where there are lacunae he fills in the blanks with some antropological basic assumptions about societal development which I can't really judge. These blanks are also filled with in with oddly sounding hyperbole " in the field of battle, there is on indisputable unwelcome fact that death, the great equalizer, might come visiting at any moment".
Fair enough, but equally true of any field of conflict.
The photographs of archeological finds are well chosen though, and the illustrations are fine, though not yet outstanding. My personal preference is for less crowded battle scenes, a few more individual poses.
All in all a book which focuses more than I like on broad history, and less on the "Early Roman Warrior 753-321 BC".

4.0 out of 5 stars essential reading, 1 Feb. 2012
Read this book. Excellent primer on its subject. Starts with a good introduction on the state of thought re: military history. Some great new (for me) insights on the early (migration) period, due to the successful use of archeological data. Detail somewhat restricted due to breadth of the subject. Material and thoughts for three similar books. Very much not of the "violent barbarians killed the Roman empire" school.
