    The Separatist Alliance, with ruthlessness and treachery, is beating the Republic to every strategic target. But after a costly clash with General Grievous for the planet Kothlis, Anakin has a mission that will focus his anxious mind. Alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi, he is posing as a long-lost native of Lanteeb, an impoverished world on the Outer Rim. This seemingly unimportant planet has drawn the interest of the Seps and Anakin, and Obi-Wan soon discover the disturbing reason.

    Robyn says: "good storyline poor character portrayal"
    "Karen Miller should not be allowed to write."
    Overall

    Just terrible. I'd give it 1 star, but gave it an extra just because it's Star Wars. The author is awful and has another stinker (Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Wild Space) in the Star Wars universe.
    Do people this bad have deals in place that allow them to write more books after the ones they've already written get largely bad reviews (which means it's not just me)? I got this without noticing the author's name. Otherwise I would have avoided it.

    For the soldiers and officers of Australia's Special Air Service (SAS) Regimentâ¿¿ this is not just their professional mottoâ¿¿ but a creed that shapes their lives. The SAS is among the world's most respected special forces unitsâ¿¿ a crack team of men from the Australian Defence Force who can be relied upon to handle the most difficultâ¿¿ strategically sensitive and dangerous of military tasks.

    "Worthless"

    I agree with the first review. I can't believe this book is so long and says absolutely nothing. No specifics whatsoever. Just generalities.

    In a burnished, driving prose, incorporating a myriad of fresh sources, John Keegan tells the story of the Allies' greatest military achievement as he chronicles the 1944 invasion of Normandy, from D-Day to the liberation of Paris.

    Jay says: "Not for the casual WWII reader"
    "Enjoyable history lesson."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It was similar to Stephen Ambrose books in that facts of the war are given, but supplemented with first hand accounts which help to personalize the events. Very interesting perspectives from American, British, German, Canadian, Russian. and Polish units. I liked hearing about the other beaches at Normandy attacked by the British and Canadians. The book covers D-Day to the end of the Atlantic campaign.
    This was one of the first downloads that i experienced "feedback" or noises from poor recording, however. More noticeable since I was using headphones.
