Shiner & Co
From the Western Front to Bristol MillionaireeBook - 2015
Grounded in momentous personal and global historical events,' Shiner & Co: From the Western Front to Bristol Millionaire' traces the many lives of Leslie Shiner; soldier, businessman, and family man. From the horror and bloodshed of the trenches of the Western Front to fighting the Bolsheviks in Russia and the IRA in a brutal guerrilla war in Ireland, Leslie was at the forefront of war history in the first half of the twentieth century. In contrast to the ruthlessness of Leslie's life in military service is his loving yet ultimately treacherous relationship with his elder brother Gordon; his life as a businessman and founder of Shiner Ltd, builders' merchant in Bristol, UK; and as a family man with wife Marion and their seven children, and their eventual emigration to Australia.
