We are very excited to reveal that this book is now available to order from the above link on our website. This is the first ever official book giving a true story of the life of an amazing man, his struggles and his achievements.
This is the story of Octav Botnar (1913-1998). Born on the eve of the First World War on one of the fault lines of European history, after participating in many of the events which would shape the Europe we know today, Botnar became one of Britain’s most successful businessmen at an age when many think of little more than retirement.
Even so, further difficulties and struggles were to follow and Botnar was to spend his last years fighting the Japanese company whose very fortune in Britain had been built by Botnar himself, and defending himself and his company against huge and unjustified demands from the Inland Revenue, notwithstanding that his company had paid more tax than all its competitors added together.
Botnar built one of Britain’s most successful private companies, created thousands of jobs and paid millions in taxes. He was also instrumental in persuading Nissan of Japan to build its European factory in one of Britain’s most disadvantaged regions, at Washington, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear. He gave millions to charities and was a figure of the 20th Century as worthy of recollection as any, but a very private and modest man, about whom most people knew little. This book corrects that.
Expertly researched and written by John Laughland, with a Preface by The Rt Hon Lord Tebbit CH.
