Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Tongue in Cheek!, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tiny book with a small Betty Boop character. More of a stocking filler than a serious book. At least my wife liked it!

Brewing for Victory: Brewers Beers and Pubs in World War II: Brewing, Beer and Pubs in World War II (Brewers, Beer and Pubs in World War II)
by Glover Brian
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £21.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Beer is Good for You!, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting read about Brewing and Beer during the War.
The state took control of breweries and pubs in some areas, and the influence might have been extended post war.
Beer represented a cohesive force which rallied the troops and on the home front.


The Essential Guide to the Royal Mail Millennium Collection Vol. One and Two.
The Essential Guide to the Royal Mail Millennium Collection Vol. One and Two.
by Not Stated
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected -, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Other than it being a "postage stamp" (ha ha) sized volume, only the first volume was delivered, hence the 2 stars.
No Volume 2 or slipcase. Something to do with the ISBN number.
Supposed to be 1999 & 2000 stamp info. Well I have got 1999, guess 2000 did not happen!


The Grand Scuttle: The Sinking of the German Fleet at Scapa Flow in 1919
The Grand Scuttle: The Sinking of the German Fleet at Scapa Flow in 1919
by Dan van der Vat
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not read this from cover to cover yet, but grazed the book.
I travel to Orkney every Easter and the WW1 & WW2 still leaves its imprint on the islands with all the buildings and anti submarine nets beached and used for sea defences.
Nice to read of the background to the scuttling.
More to read at Easter!

Black Shuck: The Devil's Dog
by Piers Warren
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, better If you know the area, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you know the North Norfolk coast and Blakeney. You will readily identify some of the obvious locations, and possibly even some of the incidental characters. It would be interesting to see another book from Piers. Knowing Blakeney and the area, I could give him a few starters for 10!


Berlitz: Dominican Republic Pocket Guide (Berlitz Pocket Guides)
Berlitz: Dominican Republic Pocket Guide (Berlitz Pocket Guides)
by Berlitz
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Guidebook, 4 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The DR Pocket guide was pretty good and offered longer descriptions and accounts than the "list" guidebook, but obviously did not cover so many items.
This edition was 2009, but will remain "current" for another few years.
Written for the US market (refs to US $ and gallon) but still useful.
Always good to take a couple of guidebooks to get a different opinions on the same subject.
