It is a practical calendar with beautiful pictures of Ireland. I was just a bit disappointed in the size of the calendar as it is a bit small for a wall.

Great introduction to Tiger tanks on North African/Italian fronts.

Reviewed by on

I personally know very little about the use/influence of Germany's Tiger tanks on the North African/Italian front (especially the latter), so to me this was a great introduction to their role on those two fronts.

The interesting point here is that the use of Borgward remote-controlled demolition vehicles were used and the author does take time to mention them. There is even a model of one in the modelling section. A wonderful addition to my Tiger reference material. I have all 3 in the Tankcraft series on the Tiger tank and they are for me a worthy purchase all around.

Another great Tiger reference added to collection.

Reviewed by on

This is my third book in the Tankcraft series on the Tiger tank. It is a great addition to the other 2 and gives a brief account on the use of Tiger tanks on the Western Front. Since this is in the 1944-1945 period of WWII, the main focus is on the Tiger II, but some relevant info is given towards the Tiger I.

Once again the camouflage/marking and modelling sections are of great value. Plenty of camo schemes for the Tiger II are given and the models are great to look at and get inspiration from.

First in my collection

Reviewed by on

This is the first Harry Potter book I ever bought for myself. (It was on sale, which is why I started with the 3rd)

The cover is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to see it in my book case. I didn't realise it was large print though, so this book is as thick as the regular print Goblet of Fire. However, the hardcover and large print just makes this the perfect book to grow old with me. Because I will love Harry Potter... you know how long.

An amazing source of reference

Reviewed by on

What stands out for me with this title is the amazing artworks showcasing the different vehicles used by Germany in the final years of the war. Some fantastic camo schemes that are sure to catch the eye of any model maker. This is a great book for anyone interested in WWII, especially the final years of 44-45.

NOTE: If you are a fan of the Panther tank or are building a model of one, this will be an excellent reference source.

Noir meets fantasy!

Reviewed by on

The first book in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, Storm Front follows the life of Harry Dresden- private investigator and practitioner of magic in Chicago.

As an introductory book to a 15-book series (still ongoing), it's jam packed full of action, despair and discoveries.
And believe me when I tell you the books just keep getting better as they progress and you find out more about Harry Dresden, his history and the world around him.

Buy a few titles in advance as you'll be craving for more afterwards!
A must buy in my opinion and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Steampunk fantasy goodness!

Reviewed by on

Got this as a gift from my brother last year on my birthday and what a gift it was!

A Jim Butcher novel set in the steampunk world of Spire Albion- this novel has a slow start but soon takes you on a high paced, action-packed adventure that keeps you intrigued from beginning to end.

If you are a fan of Butchers writing style, you'll love this.
The only criticisms I have is that there's quite a lot of naval jargon in here and it's the only book out of the series at the moment.

Great read for sure!
