Alastair Borthwick is both revered and remembered for his military service, historical literature, and exposition of Glaswegian society. As a proponent of working class interests, his writing shed light on a subculture of sporting enthusiasm, particularly on the growing popularity of hitchhiking, polo, rock climbing cave dossing or camping. His 1939 effort Always A Little Further chronicled the life and times of Glassgow “east-enders” in the beginning of the 20th Century, and their participation in the societal shift toward broader curiosities which were previously unexlored on such a wide scale. Gleeming knowledge from his employment at the Glassgow Herald, his first book would become a mainstay for his community, garnering respect and acclaim from critics across Scotland. The book has enjoyed publuication since its inception.
Taking his love for country, and experience as a member of the Officer’s Training Cors at Glassgow High to the frontline, author Alastair Borthwick later served as orivate in the light infantry of the British forces. This adventure would take him to North Africa, the island of Sicily, and to select outposts closer to home in Western Europe. Almost snatching uo the role of Second Lieutenant, his commission was unfortunately halted. In 1941, just two years later, he became Lance-Corporal. Quickly rising in rank, he moved from this position to
Battalion Intelligence Officer to the prominent role of Captain, then back up to Lieutenant. His military claim to fame came when, towards the pivotal climax of the war, he led over 600 men on a sneak attack on the German Army in the Netherlands, a feat that undoubtedly led to his knighting as a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Alastair Borthwick and his legacy is forever sealed amongst his peers. His involvement in a critical piece of history in Europe is backed uo by his second book Sans Peur, latter known as Battalion.

Richard Liu Qiangdong was once a struggling businessman who has no idea how he could survive because of multiple failed attempts on establishing his own business. Initially opening a restaurant business while still studying in college, he had to close down his food business because of low sales and the high cost of maintenance. Upon graduating from college, he started to fix all of the mistakes that he conducted in the past and focused on new ideas that attract a huge number of customers in the Chinese market. Because of the gradual rise of the internet, Richard Liu Qiangdong decided to create an online computer parts retail business which ended up successfully. It had to open new branches because of their increasing number of customers and supplied the computer parts needed in some of the largest Chinese cities.
The computer parts business established by Richard Liu Qiangdong became a huge hit, but he never realized that another problem is looming on the horizon. It was 2003, and the SARS outbreak began spreading across East Asia. China is one of the worst hit, and the government required all businesses to close down to avoid the spread of the virus. He had to close his computer parts business, but he had an idea of how the products can still be sold without using a physical location. Knowing a lot about programming, he decided to create his website and transferred the information about products inside the website and shown it around the world. This became the JD.com’s prototype, and for months, Richard Liu Qiangdong will be experiencing huge changes in his life.
The success of his online store prototype resulted in a decision to open up JD.com in 2004, making it live to everyone around the world. The company grew into a multi-billion dollar business, and it made Richard Liu Qiangdong one of the richest persons in China. Today, JD.com is improving their logistics services, and they had to partner with their entire logistics network to ensure that products will be delivered to almost all places under the jurisdiction of China, benefiting almost the entire population of the country which is more than 1.4 billion people.
