8 Bainbridge, Beryl Everyman for Himself
UK Duckworth 1996 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 22.5cm 
224 perfect white pp hold the plot of this novel & if after reading you're inclined to a more detailed look at the ship herself we have several books along those lines & even a "Titanic Lifeboat Crew" t-shirt! review >>> This was simply brilliant. The writing was so powerful I had tears in my eys at the end. I thought the plot was very clever. Frequently (but not too frequently) it foreshadowed the end, but in a subtle and poignant way. The characters were also very well described, but I think it was the way that she structured the plot that really made this stand out for me.

9 Baker, Jenny Simply Fish
Faber & Faber, London 1988 Paperback Good None issued 21.5cm 
Basic fish cookery, on how to select, identify and cook all types of fish. B+W line drawings. 333 pages. enthusiastic review > I would strongly recommend this recipe book to anyone who wants to eat more fish. Whilst Rick Stein has managed to catch the nation's imagination and encourage a renaissance in seafood cuisine, and for encyclopedic knowledge I would recommend Jane Grigson's Fish Book, what Jenny Baker has managed to do is collect a book full of delicious recipes for most fish you may encounter that may be attempted in an average kitchen, with normal ingredients, within a reasonable length of time. This is one of those special cookery books which may be used everyday, not just for special occasions. Pages all clean % well bound, cover's a bit aged & some cook has enjoyed the benefits of this great little reference. Looks like a bit of a unique title in Aust.

10 Ball, Simon The Bitter Sea: The Struggle for Mastery in the Mediterranean 1935-1949
Harper Press 2009 Paperback Very Good - Good None issued 23.5cm 
A lucid and masterly biography of the Mediterranean during a time of war, from Mussolini’s audacious bid for conquest to the creation of Israel and the start of the Cold War. The Bitter Sea is a fascinating interpretation of world affairs and a significant contribution to twentieth century history. With incisive strategic and political analysis, Simon Ball demonstrates in this dramatic narrative how the Mediterranean Sea lay at the heart of recent world history. 380pp, 2 photo sections, 750g packed for post. review >>>> An excellent history of the Mediterranean naval war which restores balance by giving appropriate weight to the courage and effectiveness of Italian naval forces. The political back biting and manipulation amongst the higher levels of the British naval forces was new to me and fascinating as was the extent of strong Nazi sympathy amongst the French naval establishment.
