    Two more free books from Endeavour Press. Not sure how long these will be available but usually it is only for a day or so.

    The books are:

    We have two great books to give away this weekend.
    'Sanctuary& Other Ghiost Stories' is a fabulously spooky collection of shortstories by Tom Kasey.
    And 'Britain'sGreatest Naval Battle' by Richard Freeman is a brilliant
    tonaval history.

    Thanks for the info - but I'd have to say that the research in the Naval History Kindle is seriously lacking. To give but a single example - it states that no British battleship was torpedoed at Jutland. In fact HMS Marlborough took one in the ribs.

    Iron Duke Class battleship - HMS Marlborough - SN Guides

    On a quick skim through, I spotted many similar errors; most of which could have been found by the author if he'd read the correct source material.

    So - at the risk of looking a gift horse in the mouth: it might be free, but its not accurate.

  9. yet again cheers A Y downloaded to peruse at a later date
