Autumn 1066 by Jack Eason: A Review

Posted January 19, 2018 by Denzil in History, Reviews / 14 Comments

Autumn 1066 gives a fictional account of the weeks preceding the Battle of Hastings on the south coast of England in October 1066. It’s a novella that takes about an hour to read. The book has much to commend it, but is let down by many punctuation mistakes, poor editing, and no cover illustration.

Life After America: A memoir about the wild and crazy 1960s

Posted January 13, 2018 by Denzil in History, Memoirs, Music, Reviews / 51 Comments

Life After America is an excellently written, enthralling account of a young American war resistor in the late 1960s. On the verge of being called up to fight in Vietnam, Joseph Glazner puts his pacifism into practice. He flees to Canada before being drafted. The book relates his experiences over the next two years and wonderfully captures the mood of the 1960s.
