THE LIFE OF CHARLES GAD STRASSER is well captured in the title, From Refugee to OBE. The reader will find not only a passionate personal story of one man's climbing of the mountain, but also an important historical rendition from war-torn Europe to the flourishing industries and institutions which have contributed to our current prosperous world.

Six years later he joined the allied armies and participated in the final victory. Before his twenty-first birthday he founded a company that would employ hundreds and have an international scope, with ties to Germany, Japan and many developing countries. While he excelled in business, it was for his many humanitarian services that he was awarded the distinction, Officer of the Order of the British Empire. He received his OBE from Her Majesty the Queen at an investiture in Buckingham Palace. The reader is invited to come along with Charles Strasser on his exciting journey from refugee to OBE.

This is an excellent read, both from the historical perspective of the changing structure of the technical goods importation market and from the personal perspective of a person's life in "making things happen" by innovative marketing approaches and strength of personality.
