    Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II review [Book]  2018-2-13 18:0

    Billy Williams returned from the Amazing Battle and desired nothing more than adventure in the company of elephants. Traveling to Burma and signing on with a British teak lumber concern, he got his is is such a charming story! I'm usually not a reader of "charming stories" and the military history aspect of the book initially triggered the purchase. Actually, there's very small military history and absolutely no combat in the book. Having said that, I am glad I bought it and it really is an perfect read.James Howard "Billy" Williams entered Burma at what would be the end of the colonial era in which Amazing Britain ruled huge patches of the globe. In Burma, Williams becomes an employee of the Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation and is immediately in contact with elephants and the experience affects him greatly. For a man who loves animals, working with these smart giants is a fascination and a joy. Williams becomes a "wallah" - an elephant expert who can treat elephant injuries, direct their work and comes to understand their thinking together with his Burmese workers. It's a window into a long-gone globe and how British lived in the e book chronicles his adventures with the elephants, his Burmese workers, falling in love and marrying, being involved in the Allied battle effort in the CBI (China-Burma-India) theater. Although his elephants did amazing work building bridges and leading refugees to India, barely escaping the clutches of the brutal Japanese, "Elephant Bill's" elephants were not vital or even important. But, it adds to the story is is a tale of the jungle, of a man's joy in the wilds and among animals who always had the best interests of his elephants at heart. He established "academies" for young elephants rather than let the calves of working, female elephants die. He established hospitals for injured elephants and showed the company that they didn't need to use cruel methods of capturing wild I said, this isn't my usual read. Having said that, I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it with five stars.

    After reading this unforgettable story, I recommended it to three other people who immediately bought it. One mate said she is reading it slowly so she can have fun every word and being an animal lover, said it 'was the best book she had ever read' and she reads a LOT! At dinner latest night, my host said that, after reading some of the book that I had loaned her, went out and bought a copy so she could read the ending in a copy of her own because she felt she required to own it herself. She told me she sat and cried when she finished the story. She then promptly emailed her mother in Seattle and sister in Wisconsin to acquire a copy as soon as they could. This is a book that encompasses everything I have fun in a book. It's real, it's exciting and educational, it's emotional, enlightening, extremely satisfying and poignant. What an appreciation I have gained for a amazing man and amazing animals. I cannot imagine anyone not being deeply touched by this account.

    This book is a must if you have any interest in elephants, history, conflict and people. I loved this book and I would highly recommend it. Every other book dealing with the history of WWII never touched on the use of elephants during the war. It was a amazing human love story and an animal love story. I couldn't place it down.

    I love elephants, so I loved this book. What an awesome story! It's well written with an effective balance of human interest and elephant information. I learned a lot about elephants. The book is a quick read. The pace is just right; I never felt bogged down. Highly recommended.

    I am currently reading this book or our July book club meeting. It is very interesting and very informative. I learned a lot about elephants and how unique they are. I am just sick that poachers are killing elephants off in such huge numbers thst they may soon be extinct.

    I loved this story of hope and determination. A young Brittish man goes to Burma after his time serving in WWI, to work with a logging company, and therefore it's most necessary employees...the elephants. This real story seems real to the period, which stretches from post WWI into mid WWII. It is sensitive, informative and inspirational. The connection between the elephants and 'Elephant Bill' is heart warming and believable. Their value during WWII heroic.

    This book is a amazing story as well as some lesser known history of Burma during Globe Battle II. It is the story of animal-lover James Howard Williams, his wife, and also a remarkable bull elephant called Bandoola. Lt. Col. Williams, known as Elephant Bill, started his career logging teak for the Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation. Later, during the Japanese occupation of Burma, his company of elephants helped build bridges and evacuate refugees. I loved the insight into Asian elephants, their intelligence, strength, and even culture. I also liked the picture it paints of the contrast between the colonials' attempts to lead a cultured life and the brutal reality of the Burmese jungle. I highly recommend this one.

    The hero development was incredibly rich. To fully appreciate the role the Elephant Company served in supporting the Allies win in Burma, it's important to first comprehend the relationship that developed between Williams and the elephants before the battle began. If it wasn't for the trust and loyalty between Williams and the elephants (and William's deep love for and understanding of elephant psychology) there could not have been an Elephant Company. And without the elephants to build crucial bridges, it's doubtful the Allies would have been successful in Burma. It wasn't a "quick and simple read"; I often re-read paragraphs several times to absorb the richness of the story. It became so exciting that I had to create myself slow down to relish every awesome detail.

    A MUST read if you love history and animals and stories of courage. I've told all of my mates about this book and know that I'll read it again. I look at elephants differently now because Croke has taught us so much about them as living, breathing, feeling monsters that deserve respect, are incredibly intelligent, with personalities, loyalty, and feelings. The setting in Burma is vividly described; the characters, especially the main hero and some of the elephants, are well developed; and the story left me breathless. Loved this book!

    It is a amazing book based on the real story. It includes fascinating facts about elephants and their role in the life in Burma during colonial times. This book does not have much info about WW II in Burma (actually the middle section of the book describing battle tactic in some detail is probably the least interesting part). But it has a no sugar-coated and very amazing descriptions of relationships between people and animals. It describes how British owned company operated in colonial Burma and how working for such company shaped people. There are plenty of old photographs, drawings and a map.I highly recommend this book to everybody who likes to read about various ways of living the life.

    Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II review [Book]  2018-2-18 18:0

    After reading the NYT's review of Vicki Croke's Elephant Company, I was so intrigued that I ordered it right away. This is the real story of Col. James "Elephant Bill" Williams, an Englishman who, as a young WWI veteran, went to Burma to test his hand in the business of teak harvesting. The teak industry was not yet mechanized and relied heavily on the power provided by trained elephants. Williams had been an animal fancier since early childhood and was instantly enthralled by the large beasts. To say that he developed a bond with them is to grossly understate the case. His ability to understand and communicate with elephants, his love of jungle life, and his leadership abilities combined to propel him to success as a manager of teak forests. His career development is tracked skillfully similar by Ms. Croke. She has researched her topic well, and Williams' hero and personality are brought to light vividly as she chronicles the happenings that led Williams to become "Elephant Bill.". As an added bonus, we learn a tremendous amount about elephants, their behavioral quirks, and their interactions with humans. With the advent of WWII, the story becomes downright thrilling. Williams serves the British forces in Burma in their bloody struggle versus the Japanese. He is created their first and only elephant officer, given the rank of colonel, and allowed to form the company for which the book is named. The company's elephants are meticulously trained and cared for, and completely loyal to Williams. Harnessing their intelligence and amazing strength, Williams is able to construct log bridges for British forces with unprecedented rapidity. Finally, and versus amazing odds, he and his elephants are able to result the evacuation of a huge number of British nationals, native Burmese, and ethnic Gurkas from Japanese-held territory, across hostile terrain, and ultimately into the safety of east India. This is a remarkable story of a remarkable man. While a life such as Williams provides a lot of "can't-miss" material, only a skilled author can do it justice. Vicki Croke has filled the bill admirably, and I highly recommend this book.

    This was a very well written acc of a man's experience in Burma with the Asian Elephants. The prose is richly written and it provides a very interesting description of the remarkable intelligence and capabilities of the elephants. The majority of the story takes put from the 1920's through the end of WWII. James Williams is employed as a forester for a huge British timber company in the Burma jungle. As part of his job, he develops a deep connection with the elephants that are used to harvest the teak timber. Williams joins the battle effort for the British government in a unique role (in charge of the elephants) as Japan invades Burma. He organizes the elephants and their handlers to support build bridges to facilitate the British troops to stop the Japanese advance. The elephants are also conscripted during this time to prevent their use by the Japanese. Ultimately, the elephants support rescue/evacuate civilian refugees in a remarkable migration to India through nearly impenetrable jungles and unsurmountable mountains. Williams demonstrates a special knowledge and ability to handle and obtain the most from the elephants and their Uzi handlers. Much of the story centers around a remarkable elephant bull called Bandoola. Bandoola saved Williams life before the battle and was one of the most strong of the elephants depicted in the story. Bandoola leads the other elephants through a treacherous climb along a shear cliff as they escape the Japanese advance. This was a highly enjoyable read that treats the reader to a better understanding of the intelligence and capabilities of these remarkable animals.

    The Things Our Fathers Saw-The Untold Stories of the World War II Generation-Volume II: War in the Air-From the Great Depression to Combat review [Book]  2017-10-14 18:9

    This series of books tells it as it was through the eyes of the men themselves, no glossing up, but in their own words. This is necessary to me because in this method the real history, the pure history, is preserved without bias. None of these guys will claim to be a character even though they overcame fear not just once but every day, and witnessed horrors and suffered losses that no man should . That is real heroism. They did this, mind you, so that we, the unborn generations could live in a prosperous and peaceful world, not for medals or private recognition. I salute them all, living and gone.

    The narratives were genuine. Often, they were difficult to read because the sentences were poorly structured. I have problem with ex officers using not good language but I also understand that these men were quite elderly. All in all a amazing read of actual first person history.

    Amazing book! My Dad served in Europe during WWII, U.S. Troops Infantry. Like so a lot of others, he never talked about his experiences. I have some old photos, but his Troops records were destroyed in the fire at the records center in 1972. We tend to forget that The Greatest Generation were just every day Americans who responded to their nation's call to fight. Some were good, some bad, some rebellious, but they served and did their part with the goal of not letting their mates down in the heat of battle. Thank you Mr. Rozelle, for preserving this history and I am looking forward to your next book.

    I have to thank the author for this book, and the previous book about the Pacific War. Getting to know the individuals and they're private stories, experiences, and training they went through was very interesting and gratifying for me, I had family that served in WW2 but never knew they're stories, a lot of vets do not want to remember those days of they're lives. The stories in these books have provided glimpses into the lives of the WW2 veterans and only served to strengthen my respect and love for them, all Americans should take the time to know them and increase they're knowledge of The Greatest Generation.

    Thank you for creating this anthology. My father would never talk about his battle experiences. All he would ever say was that he had to do things he thought he'd never have to do. He kept his horrors of battle to himself all his life. This book tells his story through the voices of his contemporaries who were brave enough to relive their amazing times as well as the horrors they endured during Globe Battle OK.

The stories in these books have provided glimpses into the lives of the WW2 veterans and only served to strengthen my respect and love for them, all Americans should take the time to know them and increase they're knowledge of The Greatest Generation.

    Thank you for creating this anthology. My father would never talk about his battle experiences. All he would ever say was that he had to do things he thought he'd never have to do. He kept his horrors of battle to himself all his life. This book tells his story through the voices of his contemporaries who were brave enough to relive their amazing times as well as the horrors they endured during Globe Battle OK.

    Amazing book! My Dad served in Europe during WWII, U.S. Troops Infantry. Like so a lot of others, he never talked about his experiences. I have some old photos, but his Troops records were destroyed in the fire at the records center in 1972. We tend to forget that The Greatest Generation were just every day Americans who responded to their nation's call to fight. Some were good, some bad, some rebellious, but they served and did their part with the goal of not letting their mates down in the heat of battle. Thank you Mr. Rozelle, for preserving this history and I am looking forward to your next book.

    This series of books tells it as it was through the eyes of the men themselves, no glossing up, but in their own words. This is necessary to me because in this method the real history, the pure history, is preserved without bias. None of these guys will claim to be a character even though they overcame fear not just once but every day, and witnessed horrors and suffered losses that no man should . That is real heroism. They did this, mind you, so that we, the unborn generations could live in a prosperous and peaceful world, not for medals or private recognition. I salute them all, living and gone.

    The narratives were genuine. Often, they were difficult to read because the sentences were poorly structured. I have problem with ex officers using not good language but I also understand that these men were quite elderly. All in all a amazing read of actual first person history.

    Amazing book! My Dad served in Europe during WWII, U.S. Troops Infantry. Like so a lot of others, he never talked about his experiences. I have some old photos, but his Troops records were destroyed in the fire at the records center in 1972. We tend to forget that The Greatest Generation were just every day Americans who responded to their nation's call to fight. Some were good, some bad, some rebellious, but they served and did their part with the goal of not letting their mates down in the heat of battle. Thank you Mr. Rozelle, for preserving this history and I am looking forward to your next book.

    I have to thank the author for this book, and the previous book about the Pacific War. Getting to know the individuals and they're private stories, experiences, and training they went through was very interesting and gratifying for me, I had family that served in WW2 but never knew they're stories, a lot of vets do not want to remember those days of they're lives. The stories in these books have provided glimpses into the lives of the WW2 veterans and only served to strengthen my respect and love for them, all Americans should take the time to know them and increase they're knowledge of The Greatest Generation.

    Thank you for creating this anthology. My father would never talk about his battle experiences. All he would ever say was that he had to do things he thought he'd never have to do. He kept his horrors of battle to himself all his life. This book tells his story through the voices of his contemporaries who were brave enough to relive their amazing times as well as the horrors they endured during Globe Battle OK.

    This series of books tells it as it was through the eyes of the men themselves, no glossing up, but in their own words. This is necessary to me because in this method the real history, the pure history, is preserved without bias. None of these guys will claim to be a character even though they overcame fear not just once but every day, and witnessed horrors and suffered losses that no man should . That is real heroism. They did this, mind you, so that we, the unborn generations could live in a prosperous and peaceful world, not for medals or private recognition. I salute them all, living and gone.

    Our country owes a debt of gratitude to this author & his pupils participating in this project facilitating the recording of the private stories of our WWII vets. These books should be needed reading for every kid attending public school in the USA

    The narratives were genuine. Often, they were difficult to read because the sentences were poorly structured. I have problem with ex officers using not good language but I also understand that these men were quite elderly. All in all a amazing read of actual first person history.
