Love Is Mighty Close

Love Is Mighty Close is the fourth studio album by Australian vocal duo Vika & Linda Bull. The album was released and distributed by MGM Distribution in July 2002, it is the duo's first album released independently after their contract with Mushroom Records ended. Linda Bull said it allowed them more freedom, "We've always been conscious of budgets and working anyway, because we didn't want to get in debt or waste someone else's opportunity, but this time we borrowed an amount of money from our mum and dad that we knew we could repay, for the recording, rather than from the record company. Now we're not A&Ring for radio, we've just made a record we like naturally. All songs on Love is Mighty Close. Linda Bull explained all the song writers are their friends "I just get on the phone and ring them up, basically. All of those songwriters know what we do musically, so when we ask them for a song they have an idea in mind of how we’re going to sing it. It’s a easy relationship."At the ARIA Music Awards of 2002, the album was nominated for ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album, but lost to Nothing But a Dream by Paul Kelly.

Molly Wishart from The Green Left said "All in a good album and well worth a listen. Problem is, Vika and Linda have set the bar so high that good doesn't compare to great." Wishart complemented a couple of "enjoyable ballads" but adding "missing from Love is Mighty Close is the blending of the personal and the political that characterised earlier songs such as "Between Two Shores" and "Grandpa's Song". CD/ cassette"Love is Mighty Close to You" "Your Love is Like a Star" "Skylarking" "It Starts With Snow" "You Touch Me Down to My Soul" "Always Greener" "Holy Waters" "I Don't Want Another Lover" "High and Low" "To Be Good Takes a Long time" "Too Many Heart" "Lullaby"

Dimitri Amilakhvari

Prince Dimitri Zedginidze-Amilakhvari, more known as Dimitri Amilakhvari was a French military officer and Lieutenant Colonel of the French Foreign Legion, of Georgian origin who played an influential role in the French Resistance against Nazi occupation in World War II, became an iconic figure of the Free French Forces. Amilakhvari was born in Bazorkino, where his family had moved from their ancestral estate at Gori, Georgia during the Russian Revolution of 1905; the house of Zedginidze-Amilakhvari had served as hereditary Master of the Horse to the Georgian Crown and retained their princely dignity during the Imperial Russian rule of Georgia. Dimitri's grandfather, Ivane Amilakhvari, was an eminent general in the Russian army, his father, Colonel Giorgi Zedginidze-Amilakhvari served in the Russian military and transferred his loyalty to the short-lived Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1918-21. After the Russian SFSR occupied Georgia early in 1921, the family fled to Constantinople, Ottoman Empire, where Dimitri attended a local British School, in 1922, emigrated to France.

In 1924, Dimitri Amilakhvari entered the École Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr and was commissioned as a second lieutenant after his graduation in 1926. At the same time, he was posted to the French Foreign Legion and promoted to lieutenant in 1926, he served in French North Africa and took part in all important operations in the south of Morocco from 1932 to 1933. From 1934 to 1939, he was Head of the French military school in Agadir, being promoted to captain in 1937. Following his naturalisation as a French citizen, he married another member of the exiled Georgian nobility, Princess Irina, née Dadiani in August 1927. Note that during his French service, the spelling of his surname was modified, dropping the'h'. By his wife, Amilakhvari had three children, sons Georges and Othar, daughter Thamar Amilakhvar, all of whom married and had offspring. During the "Phoney War" before the German occupation of France, Amilakhvari was serving in Algiers in North Africa, but in the spring of 1940 he joined the French expeditionary force earmarked for the Norwegian Campaign.

He fought at Narvik and was evacuated to the United Kingdom, where he joined the Free French Forces. He took part in the unhappy campaigns against the Vichy French forces in West Africa, at Dakar, Equatorial Africa, in Cameroun. In a remarkable record of service, his war service in 1940 had thus taken him from Africa to the Arctic Circle and back again, as far as the Equator, all in the space of a few months. Amilakhvari's next move took him halfway round the continent to Eritrea, in East Africa, to join the East African Campaign against Italy in early 1941, but by the summer he was on the move again, to take part in another campaign against Vichy France, in Syria; this would be the closest. Amilakhvari assumed command of the 13th Demi-Brigade of Foreign Legion on 6 September 1941. In 1942, Amilakhvari was back in North Africa, facing the German and Italian forces in Libya as part of the North African Campaign. During the hard fighting at Bir-Hakeim he wrote: "We, have only one way to prove to France our gratitude: to be killed...".

He survived, in June he was made a Companion of the Liberation, a decoration second only to the Légion d'honneur. In 1942 he was awarded the Krigskorset med Sverd or Norwegian War Cross with Sword for his earlier service in Norway; this is Norway's highest military decoration for gallantry and he was one of only 66 Frenchmen awarded this decoration during the Second World War. In October 1942, the Allies began the final offensive in North Africa with the Second Battle of El Alamein; this battle took the Allied forces right across Libya and into French North Africa, where Amilakhvari had begun his operational service. However, Amilakhvari did not live to complete his great African odyssey, as he was killed in action on the second day of the battle. In May 1940 Amilakhvari was awarded a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour. General Charles De Gaulle named him and his legionaries the "honour of France" for their heroic defence of the Allies' positions.
