5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 30 May 2016

A good read. I knew little to nothing about this action; it is entitled to be better known. It's a refreshing change from the tale of woe that is often the story of the British in the Far East.

4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read., 3 April 2016
I thought I woul like to know more detail than the TV drama could squeeze in. This is a first class book that gives the reader a detailed view of the complete three ring circus that was the criminal trial and the absolute travesty of the verdict. This is the only book I have read on the subject and I was convinced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Rowland White., 27 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Into the Black (Hardcover)
An excellent account of the first flight of Columbia which highlights just what an astonishingly challenging achievement it was. As a dyed in the wool Apollo enthusiast I have a new respect for the men, and women, who flew the Space Shuttle into orbit. A must read for any space geek.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing read., 7 Jun. 2015
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I have read one other book about the Battle of The Bulge and it was impossibly dense; very comprehensive but a challenging book to read. Beevor's book is an absorbing and accessible account of the action. I would recommend it to all.


Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival
Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival
by Laurence Gonzales
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving read., 15 May 2015

A first class book. I knew the basics of this story but not the wealth of detail in this book. I would have liked a little bit more about the astonishing efforts of the flight crew to even reach the airport. I believe that in simulator tests not once have the aircrew reached an airfield. If you're a nervous flyer it's not for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I very much enjoyed the author's previous two books, Before The Storm and Nixonland, and I would readily recommend them particularly the first but I cannot say the same for this book. I gave up on it because I found the sneering tone of the writer increasingly unpleasant. A great pity.

Some classic fundamental metal. Anyone serious about this music should have this album. Without these guys laying a solid foundation we wouldn't be enjoying some first rate new metal bands.
