Scapegoats: Thirteen Victims of Military Injustice
Scapegoats: Thirteen Victims of Military Injustice
Price: £3.79

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read!, 13 April 2013
This is a well researched and written book and the author speaks from a level of authority having served as both operational commander of the Scots Guards during the Falklands conflict and in senior staff roles.

The historical context allows the author to provide detailed background and narrative on each of the 'scapegoats' without giving the reader direction and allowing them to make their own minds up on whether they were really scapegoats or not.

It is an interesting read with both modern and historical issues being discussed. However, what can be presumed from reading this book is, that similar problems still exist and over the coming years, there could well be a follow up to this book on issues arising from Iraq, Afghanistan and other more recent conflicts.

The liner was advertised as a bespoke fitting item for the VW Touareg. When it arrived, it was a generic liner. Customer service was good though as refund given.

Tried to use this in the car but the springs weren't strong enough to hold the phone securely so stopped using almost straight away.

Bought for my son to use his camera when snow boarding. They were used on their recent snow boarding trip and they came back with some great footage.

The quality of the item was poor and gave the impression it would not last very long once worn regularly.


A Voice From The Ranks of the Scots Guards
A Voice From The Ranks of the Scots Guards

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing!, 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I joined the Scots Guards in 1977 and although the author had left the Regiment by then, he had an almost iconic reputation amongst many of his peer group, which lasted for many years.

This book, seemingly well researched, opens your eyes to some massive problems with the execution of the war and gives an unusual perspective of the overall campaign. However, despite the authors demonstrable search for his perceived truth, it can be seen as nothing other than a historical review of what is already known.

Unfortunately, the authors clear and documented problems with the Scots Guards Regimental Headquarters, the Government and the Royal family, has led to a situation where he has written a book that is difficult to separate fact from the authors personal views in places. Had he focused on the facts and left his personal feelings aside, I think this could have been an exceptional book. This combined with the poor writing and grammar in places makes it a difficult and disappointing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tells the story as it is!, 10 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing Zone (Kindle Edition)
The The Killing Zone tells a tragic and gripping story of the Grenadier Guards in Afghanistan. This book provides the reader with a gritty and determined account of what the Grenadier Guards went through during their tour of Afghanistan, the tragedies that so many of their number suffered and the sometimes black humour of a soldier in a war zone.

It doesn't glorify the war or seek to justify why our troops are in Afghansitan but instead draws on the experience and hardship of both soldiers and officers alike. The close contact with the Taliban throughout their tour is seen through the eyes of those who experienced it and faced the risk of death every time they left the relative 'safety' of an operating base. This book brings the reader closer to the truth of war and the consequences on those involved in it.

I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the history of the Grenadier Guards or the war in Afghansitan.

The profits for this book go to support the Grenadier's Guards Colonel's Fund, a charity supporting the Grenadiers injured in both this tour of Afghanistan and other tours that have taken place before and since.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing..., 22 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the series of Chris Ryan, Night Strike books and was disappointed at how short they were. They were more like a set of mini books and not what was advertised. The stories were reasonably fast moving but even for this author, I thought the gratuitous and excessive use of some swear words was unnecessary and OTT.

ORB GPX2 Wired Gaming Headset (PS3/Xbox360/PC)

1.0 out of 5 stars Microphone problem, 23 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The headset was brought as a present for my son who specified the one to be brought so it gave him all the functions required. Although it arrived promptly and was the type required, within ten days, the microphone became faulty and only worked intermittently. Sent back for a refund. Disappointing...
