Everyone should read, especially those in politics, whose decisions often can make other people suffer!
Icky enough to know Atca and it is with admiration I write this review. A well written account which helped me understand the war which was taking place while we over here in newZealand were just going on with our normal quiet lives. It is a wake up call for us all.
our own nations very glad that the whole family could come to New Zealand
