9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By James D. Crabtree VINE VOICE on May 25, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Filled with anecdotes from the unfortunate wars fought in the Congo following its independence from Belgium this is a fascinating look at many of the ordinary (and extraordinary!) days spent by mercenaries hired by the various governments there to accomplish goals their own Soldiers were unable to achieve. Hoare was involved in the Katanga episode and fought the Simbas, mobilized a small "navy" to fight on Lake Tanganyika and helped rescue hostages in Stanleyville, all the while meeting various odd characters. An easy read with helpful maps.

Unlike others authors, Mike Hoare has been there and speaks from experience. He was in the thick of combat throughout the Congo War and offers the reader a primary account of this conflict. Written in the usual Commonwealth-style, don't expect to be entertained with Hollywood-like narrative. Factual, pragmatic information here. A must read for all students of military history! Thanks, Jerry
