5.0 out of 5 stars Realist and entertaining drama of trench warfare, 22 May 2016

The Equus Men: Rhodesia S Mounted Infantry: The Grey S Scouts 1896-1980
by Alexandre Binda
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £55.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The last of the breed: Mounted Infantry in action!, 23 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent history of this fine Rhodesian unit; the World's last mounted infantry unit. Written in close cooperation with former members of the Regiment, it is both detailed and an interesting read. Well illustrated, the maps add geospatial awareness for readers not necessarily familiar with the country. Highly recommended.


I Have Reaped My Mealies
I Have Reaped My Mealies
by H L Hall
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic autobiography of Natal and the Transvaal in the late 19th Century, 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent autobiography of a transport rider in Natal/Transvaal during the last 30 yrs of the 19th century. Superb study of the characters encountered and some insightful comment of the geopolitics of the country at the time. A close friend of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, Hall features in the classic 'Jock of the Bushveldt', albeit not by name. The discriptions of the Zulu War logistics and early the diggings on the Rand are fascinating. Highly recommended.


Pamwe Chete: The Legend of the Selous Scouts
Pamwe Chete: The Legend of the Selous Scouts
by Ron Reid-Daly
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The Selous Scouts according to the former CO, 6 Aug. 2015
A republication of Selous Scouts Top Secret War, but this time without any credit given to Peter Stiff. The consequent legal issues make for a fascinating story in itself.
The 'Scouts were a controversial unit and this book does little to dispel the myths or otherwise. Well worth a read!
