More > cordite, the personal records of war on the home front, set against the backdrop of international events, give a good impression of the slow, relentless, grind and struggle of the civilian population over six years of war.

The All Lies Invasion By Mike Walsh
eBook (ePub): $4.99
Following the Great War (1914~1918) there was admission that its first victim was truth. World War Two (1933~1990) was no exception. There was no remorse over falsehoods told to enable the USSR and... More > U.S to divide the world as they saw fit. On May 8, 1945 Germany's armed forces and England's Empire signed their assets away. As the fumes of cordite and corpses of tens of millions vaporised there was no admission that, since Hitler's 1933 election, the conflict had been propaganda-led and still is. Wars commence only when those who do the fighting are psychologically conditioned to do the suffering and the dying. A war without propaganda is a war without arms. The All Lies Invasion takes the reader on a fascinating odyssey. In hundreds of instances, many bizarre or amusing and others pathetic, The All Lies Invasion is a warning of political and media deception and public naiveté.< Less

The old wooden grain elevators and... More > warehouses sleep in the warm summer weather. But soon after dusk on August 14, 1945, the day the war is finally over, the grain elevators erupt into flames. Few people know that across a narrow strip of water one of the warehouses contains hundreds of tons of cordite, an explosive intended for the war. Fanned by the wind, the fire jumps the harbour. Is the fire the result of spontaneous combustion? Unlikely. Hal Watson, a middle-aged teacher at a nearby school, knows the secret behind the inferno and explosion. Parry Sound, the inlet where Depot Harbour used to stand, is now a cottagers' paradise, but when Hal first sees the place he calls it 'the edge of the world.' His account of the year leading up to the conflagration involves love and murder. Join him and learn who struck that match.< Less
