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 remarkabl...

‘Britain’s Baby Blitz’ – the world’s first jet propelled missiles


It was 75 years ago today that the world awoke to a new age as the first V1 rocket fell on the city of London. We are all used to the term ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’, and prior to the Second World War the only weapon which could have been called that was the gas used in the trenches during the First World War. The shells used to deliver the gas were of a conventional nature, but what the Germans later developed was something completely different so that when Hitler’s new weapons rained down on London for the first time in 1944 they were almost incomprehensible in their sophistication and power. What were they? And where did they come from? In 1939 the Oslo Report alerted London to the dev...
