Hong Kong's story in the Second World War has been predominantly told as a story of the British forces and their defeat on Christmas Day 1941. But there is another story: the Chinese guerrilla forces who harassed the Japanese throughout the occupation played a crucial part in the escapes from Hong Kong's prisoner of war camps and in rescuing Allied airmen. This neglected part of Hong Kong's war is Chan Sui-jeung's topic in this pioneering book informed by his many contacts with participants in the guerrilla warfare.

Poems from Ish River Country Counterpoint

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Poems from Ish River Country collects the complete poems of poet, painter and calligrapher Robert Sund. Mr. Sund's few published volumes of poetry and frequent public readings established his reputation as one of the most distinctive poetic voices of the Pacific Northwest, where he enjoyed a tremendous popularity before his death in 2001. His short, imagistic poems, in the tradition of William Carlos Williams and Kenneth Rexroth, distill the essence of the Northwest landscape and in plain speech celebrate themes of family, friendship, work and quiet contemplation. Included are the poet's award-winning collections, Bunch Grass, which gave literary voice to the rolling wheat country east of the Cascade Mountains in his native Washington State, and Ish River, which celebrated the misty, riverine landscape of the Puget Sound country, a place, in the poet's words, "between two mountain ranges where / many rivers / run down to an inland sea." But the greater part of this collection contains poems unpublished during the poet's lifetime or published only in very limited editions. There is also a generous selection of his translations, from Issa, Buson, Basho, and most especially from the Swedish poet Rabbe Enckell, with whom Mr. Sund felt a close affinity.

Survivor on the River Kwai is the heartbreaking story of one of the last survivors of the Burma Railway. February 1942. A young British soldier is caught up in the worst defeat in the history of the British Army, the fall of Singapore. Reg Twigg spends the next three years in hell, moving from jungle camp to jungle camp and building the Burma Railway for the all-conquering Japanese. Beaten, tortured, starving and forced to watch his comrades die, Reg fights for his survival, stealing from his captors, trapping animals and even making his own tobacco. That Reg survived is testimony to his own courage and determination, his will to beat the alien brutality of camp guards who had nothing but contempt for him and his fellow POWs. He was a risk taker whose survival strategies sometimes bordered on genius. As moving and harrowing as The Last Fighting Tommy, with the drama of David Lean's The Bridge Over the River Kwai and the heart of The Forgotten Highlander, Survivor on the River Kwai is Reg's story - his pain, his triumphs and even his forgiveness. Reg Twigg was born at Wigston (Leicester) barracks on 16 December 1913. He was called up to the Leicestershire Regiment in 1940 but instead of fighting Hitler he was sent to the Far East, stationed at Singapore. When captured by the Japanese, he decided he would do everything to survive. After his repatriation from the Far East, Reg returned to Leicester. With his family he returned to Thailand in 2006, and revisited the sites of the POW camps. Reg died in 2013, at the age of ninety-nine, two weeks before the publication of this book.

History of the Saint Clair River Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from History of the Saint Clair River: Written for the Centennial of the Founding of St. Clair County on May 8, 1821 The St. Clair River has had various names. The Indians called it "Otsi-Keta-Sippi" according to the History of St. Clair County by the Western Historical Company. Mrs. Hulda Holland in her book. "When Michigan Was New" calls the River "Otsi-Sippi" When Dollier and Gallinee came up the River May 25th, 1670, the latter, in his account of their journey writes of "The Streight." In one of the earlier maps it is placed as the Huron river. When Patrick Sinclair bought the land where St. Clair now stands and built Fort Sinclair in 1765 the River bore the name "Sinclair" of fifty years. The present name is in honor of General Arthur St. Clair who was Governor of the Northwestern Territory of which Michigan was a part, Oct. 5th, 1787. Coming down the stream the first city is Port Huron (the Tunnel City) with a population in 1920 of 25,941. At South Park there is an attractive little park on the riverside. Marysville the new city come next with a present population of 2,100. Farther down are a number of attractive summer homes. In the Hartman home, Mr. C. H. Wills, the founder of Marysville, has been living with his family during the winter. The Parke home above is an attractive land mark as are the homes of Mrs. James N. Wright and the beautiful place of Mr. John Bailum where the grounds are terraced to the River edge, making a most Interesting sight from the passing boats. St. Clair City is the oldest settlement on the River, with a population of 3,204. Palmer Park is an attractive place with the name St. Clair on the bank marked with white stones. East China is a historic spot, as all boats stopped there in the '30s and '40s at the dock of Capt. John Clark to load cordwood for fuel. Four hundred nineteen people reside there. Marine City, where many boats have been built, has 3,731 inhabitants. There are summer resorts near, Cherry Peach, Pearl Beach and others are noted ones. Algonac, which may properly be called the "Speed-boat Town", has a population of 2,103 including the people of Clay Township. Pointe du Chene is located below Algonac. The entire River section is a popular summer resort. The St. Clair River is the present name of the body of water which flows from Lake Huron to Lake St. Clair. The length is thirty-nine miles. The width varies with an average of three-fourths of a mile. There is an Indian legend that once the River was at one place so narrow that a tall tree falling on the bank across the River would allow passage from shore to shore The cork pine which grew along the River sometimes attained the height of seventy-eight to one hundred 60 feet so possibly the River might have been that narrow but improbable. The depth also varies. When sounding for the St. Clair Tunnel a depth of forty-one feet was found. There are numerous shoals where the water is very shallow. The one opposite Port Huron is called "the middle ground." That in front of St. Clair is known as "the Bar." It can be located by the naked eye as the water over it is lighter in color.

In September 1838 a storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and the Ibis, a ship carrying a consignment of convicts and indentured laborers from Calcutta to Mauritius, is caught up in the whirlwind. When the seas settle, five men have disappeared - two lascars, two convicts and one of the passengers. Did the same storm upend the fortunes of those aboard the Anahita, an opium carrier heading towards Canton? And what fate befell those aboard the Redruth, a sturdy two-masted brig heading East out of Cornwall? Was it the storm that altered their course or were the destinies of these passengers at the mercy of even more powerful forces?On the grand scale of an historical epic, River of Smoke follows its storm-tossed characters to the crowded harbors of China. There, despite efforts of the emperor to stop them, ships from Europe and India exchange their cargoes of opium for boxes of tea, silk, porcelain and silver. Among them are Bahram Modi, a wealthy Parsi opium merchant out of Bombay, his estranged half-Chinese son Ah Fatt, the orphaned Paulette and a motley collection of others whose pursuit of romance, riches and a legendary rare flower have thrown together. All struggle to cope with their losses - and for some, unimaginable freedoms - in the alleys and crowded waterways of 19th century Canton. As transporting and mesmerizing as an opiate induced dream, River of Smoke will soon be heralded as a masterpiece of twenty-first century literature.

When the British government undertook the construction of the Uganda Railway through East Africa in 1898, harsh criticism from the press, tremendous amounts of money spent, and rebelliousness of the workers turned out to be the least of the government's worries. Their biggest obstacle came in the form of two ravenous lions with a taste for human flesh, terrorizing the 35,000 labourers building a railway bridge over the Tsavo River. After killing more than 130 people over the course of nine months, the lions completely halted construction, as the workers were too afraid to continue. Colonel John Henry Patterson, the chief engineer overseeing the project, then took matters into his own hands. An inexperienced hunter at the time, but a courageous and clever man, he took on the beasts and single-handedly brought an end to their nine-month reign of terror. Patterson's true account of his gripping and terrifying adventures confronting the lions and overseeing the project termed "The Lunatic Line," while tackling countless other obstacles, is a must for anyone looking for a thrilling read. With over 100 original photos of the East African lands, native tribes, and wild animals, "The Man-Eaters of Tsavo" is a true hunting classic.

In Ride the River, Louis L'Amour spins the tale of a young woman who has to protect her family fortune from a murderous thief and teach him what it means to be a Sackett. Sixteen-year-old Echo Sackett had never been far from her Tennessee home--until she made the long trek to Philadelphia to collect an inheritance. Echo could take care of herself as well as any Sackett man, but James White, a sharp city lawyer, figured that cheating the money from the young girl would be like taking candy from a baby. If he couldn't hoodwink Echo out of the cash, he'd just steal it from her outright. And if she put up a fight? There were plenty of accidents that could happen to a country girl on her first trip to the big city.
