    This book is a wonderful resource on the much neglected side of the ideal gentleman, the "Gentlemanly Virtues" Without virtue, etiquette and politeness is just empty form. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any aspiring gentleman.....

  • The Battle of the Falkland Islands: 1914: The Royal Navy and War in the Sout Atlantic in the Early Days of the First World War

    FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of this WWI naval history by an author who actually took part in the battle(s) described. This plain, unvarnished account, so far as is known, is the first attempt that has been made to link with the description of the Battle of the Falkland Islands, fought on December 8th 1914, to the events leading up to that engagement. Each phase presented has been read and approved by officers who participated.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Avoid this book if you have ever heard German language spoken. The narrators pronounciation of German words, ship names and names of persons, is so bad as to make them almost completely unrecognisable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from H Spencer-Cooper? Why or why not?

    I dont know, I gave up on the book due to the narration.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot?

    Whatever narrator is selected, needs as a minimum to be capable of pronouncing German in a way that is even remotely recognisable as german, rather than just jiberish....


    Was The Battle of the Falkland Islands worth the listening time?

    No, half the story gets "lost in pronounciation"

    Nearly every man wants to be a gentleman. He may not know exactly what that means, but his true desire is to be respected and admired in the way only a gentleman can be. He wants to be prepared and confident, certain that his judgment is shrewd and his behavior appropriate. A gentleman considers the weight of his words and the impression he is leaving.

    An excellent book and a great resource for a dying breed, the gentleman. I highly recommend this book as well as the sequel, "Manvotionals"
