ex-Swindon lib, usual stamps etc. In summer 1941 Erwin Rommel was Hitler's favourite general: he had driven the British out of Libya and stood poised to invade Egypt. He seemed unbeatable.

Everyman for Himself

By: Bainbridge, Beryl

Price: $22.00

Publisher: UK, Duckworth: 1996

Seller ID: 010141

Condition: Excellent


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. View more info
