Announcement 7: Book Recommendation

A World Lit Only By Fire by William Manchester.
This book shows how Europe in the dark ages A.D. 400 – 1,000 emerged into the age of rebirth in the 16th century. It provides interesting insights regarding the mystery, heroism, superstition and cruelty of the age although Christianity was the new religion.

It also shows how Magellan became the first man to sail round the world, discovering Cape Horn in South America and then the Philippines and how his foolish decision caused him to die as a brave fighter before being recognised by the world.

That’s all for this week. Thank You.

Best regards,
Mr. Godfrey Ooi.
