The Forgotten Soldiers Of the Second World War


The Second World War was a truly global conflict, yet when talking of the British struggle against Germany we usually think predominantly of English men, but it was really the British Empire not Britain alone which fought the war. Millions of soldiers from Britain’s colonies served during World War 2, and many experts believe that soldiers from India were crucial to the winning of the conflict, yet they did not receive the same pay and conditions as the British soldiers they served beside, or recognition afterwards. There were just under 200,000 men in the British Indian Army at the outbreak of war in 1939 but over 2.5 million by August 1945, and these soldiers were all volunteers – there wa...

Book review: The legend of Jake Howell by Charles A Reap Jnr. One of the world's richest and most admired men.


5 Star review for a well-deserved book. I received the book from the publisher for an honest review. Jacob P Howell had an interesting life. Born in 1803, it was filled with drama, heartbreak and sorrow but he always got back on his feet. His footprint left a trail of determination, knowledge, skill and sound advice. A legacy that stood the test of time. His enormous wealth started with one gold nugget that changed his way of life forever. Born as the son of a dirty, penniless farmer, Jake understood the value of hard work, learning and experience. His father giving him the solid foundation to further himself as a businessman. The author’s writing allowed you a brief glimpse of this remarkab...
