3.0 out of 5 stars Poor memorial to a great soldier, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a soldier who knows Sierra Leone well (having served there for 2.5 years) and knowing many of the characters in this story, I was much looking forward to this read. It's a great story, but what a shame that it's so poorly written - not Fred's stuff, which is taken directly from contemporaneous notes, but Mr Ross' overall narrative; it's clunky, the style seems to change as if written by numerous authors and the proof-reading was done by a chimp. Fred deserved better!
