Thrilling Read, 22 Sep 2010
This is a fantastic book which tells a story from a true life perspective of what happened to Irish soldiers in the Congo. It realy gives a fantastic sense of what it was like for the author and his comrades to be on the ground in a real life war situation. It charts the life of Pat Mullins from childhood to his heroic death in the Congo and is indeed a gripping read.
As a lover of real life stories this was a fantastic read for me as the authors personal experience really comes through in the book - you almost feel like you are there living the story when reading the book. This is a must buy - you wont be able to put it down once you start.
