Corporal Johnnie

by John Butterworth and Jane Marshall

Sometime in the early 1890s Johnnie Butterworth disappeared from his Rochdale home after a family quarrel. He was not heard of again for months, probably several years. Then, in 1896, a letter arrived at 32 Yorkshire Street from ‘Corporal John Butterworth, Kings Royal Rifles, Jullundur, NW India’. For the next four years regular correspondence between Johnnie and his family would reunite the family.
By 1896 Johnnie had become Corporal John Butterworth, an ‘Uncommission Officer’ in Queen Victoria’s army, serving with the King’s Royal Rifles in post-Mutiny Imperial India. At first Johnnie would describe the excitement and the stimulation of the new experiences which life beyond Rochdale offered. But he would also explain, often in careful detail, routine army life,...

The Soldier: Alien in the Delta

by Thankful Strother

I love my country, The United States of America. But I discovered at an early age that my country did not love me. I had to leave The USA and live in Germany to discover equality.

With basic training done, six young men from Detroit headed back home on the train. Some place in Texas, the train stopped so that we could stretch our legs and get a snack. The six of us got off the train and went into the restaurant to get something to eat. We were all dressed in our nice, new blue uniforms, proudly representing the United States Air Force. I walked into the restaurant with all my buddies, and before we could sit down, the waiter looked at me and the other black serviceman and said. “We can’t serve you in here. You have to go out back to order and pick up your food.” Born an...

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

Private Dreams: A True Account of My Time With the 82nd Airborne in Dominican Republic

by Ronald Mayle S.R.

Private Dreams is a true story of my journey through the U.S. Army from 1965 to 1967. It's how I went from failing the Navy entrance exam to finding myself in the middle of a crisis in the Dominican Republic with the 82nd Airborne Division. A crisis that hardly anybody has heard of. It's also about finding love in a foreign land and being forced to decide between leaving her there or bringing her home. It's more than just a military story. It's also a story that affects every family, and that is cancer. It can bring families together or it can tear them apart. It's a story about the turbulent '60's and the racism that spilled over into the military. In "Private Dreams", I myself had dreams that were private only to me.

Due to the graphic nature of this book, the recommended ag...

Once I was a Teenager: Growing up in the 50s and 60s in Australia and beyond

by Jonquil Graham

Remember those long-ago days of fatty Sunday roasts, junket, climbing mulberry trees, hula hoops, mini-skirts, surfing and rock ‘n’ roll?

When the Strathern family moved to the coastal Sydney suburb of Collaroy,the neighbours feared the family of five and their dog in underpants would lower the tone on Pittwater Road.

Whether they did or not is for you to decide as Jonquil Graham takes you on a return journey to childhood and teenage years that included sea voyages, modelling assignments, making a movie, Contiki trips, doing t...

The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat. Few stories better illustrate this better than th...

As president, Abraham Lincoln had one goal and that was to preserve the Union at all costs. His determination to hold the North and South together would ultimately lead to the bloodiest war in American history, the abolition of slavery, and his own untimely death from an assassin’s bullet. But to see Lincoln solely as a tragic figure consumed with the strife of mid-nineteenth century America is to miss meeting him as a man who never allowed himself to be defeated by adversity or grief or turmoil. From his earliest days on the frontier, he endured the loss of his beloved mother and the demanding physical challenges of a rough-and-ready land where death came easily and education was rare; where ambition was rewarded if a man proved himself willing to work hard; where ...
