He had to pay out his two sisters accordingly. So he decided in and to go abroad, where currently in a short time more money than in Germany. In Colombia he worked at Pizano Triplex y Madeiras, a large manufacturer of wood-based materials in Barranquilla, as the workshop maintenance manager. In he was then back again in Germany. In he founded a family of their own.
The family has two sons. At the time, the two sons were still too young and not yet sufficiently qualified to take over the business as it was originally planned. His partner Willi Stemick, who was about 10 years older, had been in retirement for several years. The company was closed in He was still hoping to see again someone from the family with whom he had spent part of his life. His wish would probably have come true.
He still had many plans as a pensioner. His straightforward, honest, industrious and kind human nature has always distinguished him. With those who knew him, he left many lasting memories. This was a welcomed support to the units who were there. The Battalion headquarters was located in St-Vivien and the task of the unit was to monitor of the perimeter of the fortress by several blocking points.
For the most part, the fortress was spared fighting. However targeted attacks by FFI pose a major problem.
The FFI fighters were not recognizable as such, since they did not wear a uniform. Any civilian could have been a FFI fighter and be a potential danger. FFI attacks were extremely feared.
The second major problem in the fortress was the inadequate supply of food for the troops. Sometimes, however, there were ways that get food.

He was involved in hand-to-hand combat with a dark-skinned US soldier. In this fight — man against man — this attacker wanted to stab him with his bayonet. Wilhelm stopped the attack by reacting with a defence movement. Instead of being killed he was finally able to escape. Only a permanent scar on his ring finger reminded him every day of this minor incident.
His duties there included, among other things, were deforestation and forest clearing work, the construction of wooden houses and other buildings and searching and defusing mines. According to his accounts, the minesweepers had the highest rate of injured and dead prisoners of war. According to his accounts, often only 8 out of 10 people came back to the camp in the afternoon from a mine-clearing operation. Accidents causing deaths were common among mine sweepers.
He was lucky and he remained accident-free. Also he reported about the bad food supply situation. According to his accounts, the guards mostly French colonial soldiers almost daily, before the morning roll call, had to carry out the dead bodies of the prisoners of war who had died the night before.
They either had died for lack of food or from infectious diseases that were prevalent in the camp. The sanitary conditions in the camp were extremely poor, paired with hunger and deprivation, which was a good breeding ground for death. But fate would be good to Wilhelm.

Schumpeter was to become a frequent contributor of the Berlin-based journal, which combined a successful blend of economic analysis and political and business insider knowledge which Stolper gained with his famous and sought after parties at his Wannsee villa. The two publications offer a kaleidoscope of many different ideas and concepts, some of which are addressed in this book, including philosophy, demography, monetary aspects, foreign developments, employment policy, and politics.
The personal and professional contributions of Gustav Stolper and his secretary, Lilo Linke, are also discussed. Very little has been published on these early ventures into economic journalism, and this book will appeal to anyone studying economic journalism or the economic history of early twentieth century Europe.
