In the spring of 1942 Britain's far-flung empire was in the greatest peril. North Africa was being overrun by the German Afrika Korps and in south-east Asia the forces of Imperial Japan had captured Singapore and were threatening India. Only the most urgent reinforcement of both war fronts could prevent disaster. But Britain's shipping routes to Egypt and India passed the island of Madagascar. If the Japanese Navy, operating out of Madagascar, could severe Britain's communications with Cairo and Delhi, then the whole of North Africa and the Indian sub-continent would be at the mercy of the Axis Powers. In a desperate race against time, and under conditions of the utmost secrecy, at Churchill's instigation Britain planned to seize Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, before the Japanese could strike. An overwhelming force was assembled and despatched as part of the largest convoy ever to have left Britain's shores. Yet the expedition's commanders were faced with not just military but also political obstacles, because the forces occupying the island were not those her enemy's but those of her former ally - France. The Secret Invasion is the first book to examine in detail this crucial campaign which was Britain's largest amphibious assault since the First World War and the first large-scale combined air, sea and land operation Britain had attempted.

      scratch on Raspberry Pi is an optimised version of Scratch 1 that's been worked over to be particularly great on the Pi (you'll notice there's a lot you can do with physical computing via the platform now). Scratch 2 is Flash-based; like a lot of other hardware, the Raspberry Pi does not support Flash.

      If your passionate about design, and fortunate to have access to the software, pretty sure you will start this at a young age these days. My friends and I were pretty much photoshop pros in Highschool in terms of Design software. University did teach us some new tricks though ????

    I suspect it's the same thing with Squarespace. You just have to become good with working with their system, if you want to really customize your website via codes. Squarespace does open up its code base to users, but one will have to be pretty proficient with codes to use it effectively.
