    "With Blood and Scars by B E Andre has recently been released in paperback and electronic versions as well. This is a story about the impact of cultures reacting to immigrants and their descendants over generations. It's quite touching, eye opening, and even funny in parts but it all rings true through the story telling skills of the author. I enjoyed it and would recommend it. It's good reading folks!"

    "Jackboot Britain: The Alternate History - Hitler's Victory & The Nazi UK! is an alternative reality novel that deals with the incorporation of the UK into Nazi Germany. The characters are pretty well developed and really offers interesting answers to the question "what if?". The book is also told from several different perspectives which, to me, adds to its alternative credibility. "

    "I tried really hard to get into this, but it was just as bleak and depressing as the real thing. If I wanted that, I would have bought a non-fiction book. Not a fun read at all."

    "I have Polish ancestry, and to get in touch with my roots I've been consuming fact and fiction about it's history. This book piqued my interest so I read it, and probably could have done without. It does give a good perspective from that time, but this book has too much about the war and not enough about Poland."

    "My uncle is Polish and a frequent reader. He recommended I read this book a few months ago to learn more about Polish culture. It was a pretty interesting read for me. It starts in 1939 where the Germans invaded Poland and continues from there. Perfect for history buffs."

    "There is no James Bond manoeuvres just solid plodding but this makes for very intense reading as failure is fatal. Reviews I've read state that the book is historically accurate as well which is always good to know. Highly recommended if you like your espionage stories real. I won't watch the TV series as the book was so good it would not be able to come up to the same level."
