    The Black Watch and Other Military History Books

    I have a few books about military history that I have downloaded in PDF from the net.

    Instead of me uploading them onto a hosting site, here is the list with links to where to download.

    There is normally a choice of downloads, ie, Kindle, PDF, Full Text, Read online and others.

    Enjoy:

    Armagh,

    I'm not 100% sure of the procedure for taking things from your computer and putting them into the Kindle as I normally do this by wireless - I put my download into my computer then transferred them into my Ipad.

    Chalky just might be able to help you with this problem - try giving him a wee PM - Have you tried connecting up your Kindle to your computer - then drag the PDFs over..that might work!

    Armagh,
    Try downloading the PDF Book into your computer - then try sending it to the address given to you by Kindle for the downloading of documents - you should have been given an email address worded something like this: armagh@kindle.co - it sends documents to whispernet who transfers them back to your Kindle - normally cost about 20p

    If that fails..?

    In a similar vein, has anyone a list of Black Watch memoirs by veterans from the two world wars and Korea?

    Cheers,
    Deeko.
