From "Shrew" to "Spitfire"
Review of Spitfire : The Autobiography - Constable And Robinson by 2mennycds

Advantages: Gripping, readable, largely first-hand accounts
Disadvantages: Over-emphasis on derring-do at the expense of other important elements

It’s hard to believe that the iconic fighter aircraft of the Second World War was intended by its designer to be called the “Supermarine Shrew”. When he heard that it was to be called “Spitfire” instead, R G Mitchell considered it a “bloody silly name”! ... Read review

A dead man's crucial role...
Review of Operation Mincemeat - Ben Macintyre by 2mennycds

Advantages: Compelling, well researched, easy to read
Disadvantages: None

It’s 30th April 1943, and the body of a Royal Marines major is floating in the sea just off the coast of southwest Spain. Not too far is a partially inflated dinghy and, elsewhere, a single oar is floating, sure evidence that he has escaped from a downed ... Read review

Review of Collins Complete British Insects (Collins) - Michael Chinery by 2mennycds

Advantages: Comprehensive, accessible, does what it aims to do
Disadvantages: A few photographs unhelpful for identification purposes

I’ll be honest, insects aren’t my favourite form of wildlife, but they do have a fascination. Their life cycle is often almost alien – in some cases of parasites that would be alien with a capital A, as in the film! You have larval forms that bear no r ... Read review
