    Tank Rider

    Now read it for the second time and it's going too due to our usual lack of space.

    Tank Rider
    Into the Reich with the Red Army
    by Ivgeni Bessonov
    ISBN 1-85367-554-7

    An easily read hardback book of the authors service in the Red Army from enlistment in 1941 to 1947. 1943 to Berlin on frontline service. IOn common with some other veterans accounts the writing is perhaps simplistic with many of teh authors phrases abd thoughs frequently repeated e.g. what can one do war is war or orders had to be obeyed.

    Nevertheless an insight into the soviet tank rider and his role, actions and woes (he seems to have achip on his shoulder about his [lack of] promotion).

    *Addition -also going!

    "The Great Ingratitude" - Bomber Command in World War 2
    by James Fyfe
    ISBN 1872350 755
    Hardback

    As before to GB or the EU and I'm not interested in payment either.

    Any takers?? PM me your address and I'll post it off to you. If no word by 15th their off to the local library.

    Bump * note the addition to the above post. And once again (as Ricky will confirm) I am not looking for money, I would just prefer they went to someone in the forum who would like to read them.

    I will happily vouch for Cholbert - he has sent me 2 lots of books now, and still refuses to even let me pay postage.

    Cholbert, I for one would be greatly helped if you could post the years of publishing of these books - the more recent they are, the more likely they are to have some good information.

    This is a great book, I'm reading the Polish translation and I love it. Not revolutionary to any extent but definitely worth reading. Number 5. seems nice and interesting but...

    Holy God! I've been looking for any version of it everywhere in my country and it was nowhere tobe found. Even in foreign language bookshops! :eek:

    What happens is that the system sends an email to the users aemail addressing telling them there is a PM. So you should recieve notification of my PM to you.

    So I have. But my problem was: shouldn't the sent PMs be stored in the Sentbox rather than the Outbox. Well, in fact they are, with the exception of the one that I sent to you. You got it (proof: you replied), but it's still in the Outbox...

    Anyway.. nevermind :grin: All's well that ends well.

    PMs should be in the Outbox until they are read by the recipient, after which they are moved to the Sentbox. The advantage of this is that you can still edit your sent PMs until the person on the other end reads them.

    The 2 books are now in the post to you. Should take 5-6 days to get to you as they were just sent via ordinary Royal Mail.


    Now before I take the rest to Oxfam is there anyone interested in them?
