Kindle WW1 bargain books

I've just been browsing the Kindle book store, and noticed a couple of bargains relating to the war.

Today I've downloaded The Salford Pals book by Michael Steadmam for 99p

Also Martin Middlebrooks Somme Battlefields and Paul Read's Walking Arras and the Somme are only 4 quid or so.

Having lots of photos, they are best viewed on an iPad or Kindle Fire.

I also downloaded Michael Steadman's 'Salford Pals' book to my Kindle for 99p and it made great reading on my balcony, early evening, on my last holiday.

There is quite a lot of stuff at good prices at the moment; as well as those above, some of the Holts guides, and Jack Sheldon's books

Just noticed "The Lion and the Eagle: Anglo German Naval confrontation in the Imperial Age" is currently 77p. The paperback is £20.

For a book that has been compared favourably with Massie's "Dreadnought" that has got to be a steal

I have found that very often, it is better to go to Gutenburg Project, reasearch the books on that site, and then find the books with the Kindle search and download them.

These books are all free. Not all that is on the Gutenburg Project is available via the Kindle, but most are, and looking at the website is quicker and easier than looking at the Kindle (and anything not on Kindle can be downloaded to a PC, etc).

The War Diary of the Master of Belhaven is available for £3.08 as a Kindle version. I haven't looked to see if it's a Project Gutenburg freebie.

Also 'Victory 1918' by Alan Palmer is available as a free Kindle download. Never read it, so I can't say if it's good, bad or indifferent, but others of his books have been good.

There is a free version of 'The Middle Parts of Fortune' also available at the moment, and what appears to be a more up-market version for £1.99.

Thanks Paul - the free one has very bad formatting on my Kindle, and the £1.99 one has maps and illustrations - so you pay your money and take your choice!

Not to crow, but the £1.99 was itself free earlier this week when I downloaded it. But £1.99 is still good value.
