1.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe how poor the sound quality is., 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this after reading all the 5 star reviews but can't believe how poor the sound quality is. The speaker crackles all the time like there is a loose connection inside despite following the instructions and re-pairing it several times and no bass whatsoever makes everything you play sound flat and tinny. Really disappointed and returned for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and well written, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A comprehensive, detailed and well written biography of an extraordinary man. Written by somebody who knew and served with him it gives an insight into many aspects of the early 20th Century, sadly culminating in Don Saville's death over Hamburg in July 1943.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chickenhawk (Kindle Edition)
I first read this book not long after it was published in the early 1980's. Since then I must have read it 5 or 6 times. Incredibly well written, moving and thought provoking it is simply one of the best books I have ever read. Read it - I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not do justice to a brave crew who survived., 15 May 2011
This review is from: Bomber Flight Berlin (Paperback)
Having an interest in Bomber Command (my own Uncle was killed flying a Wellington in 1942, 2 days before his 21st birthday) I have read many books on this subject. Generally (with the exception of Martin Middlebrooke's excellent works which are in a category of their own), they fall into one of two categories; autobiographical and based on diaries written at the time or biographical and based solely on a crew members log book.
The first category often manage to portray the real feelings and emotions of life on a bomber base where every member of an operational crew knew the odds were stacked against their survival. Harry Yates's Luck and a Lancaster, Jack Currie's Lancaster Target and Mosquito Victory, Don Charlwood's No Moon Tonight and Pip Beck's Keeping Watch are all excellent examples.
The Second category is often little short of a list of operations padded out with generic, and often irrellevent information. Sadly this book falls into the second category. It's 336 pages long but you get to page 177 before they take off for their first raid which, incidently, is covered in 3 short pages. Large parts of the first half of the book describe life on a farm in the 1920's & 30's interspersed with a potted history of Bomber Command and Arthur Harris. There is little in the way of emotion and no sense of the fear, exhilaration, relief etc captured in other books covering this subject.
There is no doubt that the members of this crew were extremely brave and exceptional young men who we all owe a great debt to, as well as the 55,573 who failed to return, unfortunately this book fails to do them justice

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Sept. 2010
What a compelling read! This is the only book I have sat down and read from cover to cover without a break. It is a facinating story by an incredible man told with honesty and compassion. If you are considering buying this book - do it, you won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as pictured, 9 April 2009
Beware - you do not get what is pictured and what you do get is very poor quality. The pictures clearly show a mains charger and a car charger, what you actually get is a mains USB plug, an in car USB plug and a USB lead. So you can't leave the car charger in the car and the mains charger in the house as they both use the same lead. Also the headphones are such poor quality and crackly that you can't use them. One star is generous.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 9 April 2009
Firstly this is not a battery pack but a battery charger (described on the packaging as a "mobile powerstation"). Although you can still use the ipod whilst it is charging, (on the rare occasions it works!) you have bright blue lights flashing in your face which is very distracting if you are playing a game or watching a film. The connection is very loose which means you cannot just plug it in and leave it to recharge your ipod, you have to push it in very hard (which risks damaging the ipod) and hold it there for the length of time it takes to charge. Very poor, don't waste your money.
