3.0 out of 5 stars Erudition, 6 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Shipton and Tilman (Hardcover)
I enjoyed the book especially as Shipton and Tilman are among the adventurers I most admire. However, the author has spoilt the text by the frequent inclusion of highfaluting words eg impaludistic when alternatives would still give the same meaning. Perhaps, I am not as erudite as Jim Perrin. I think his book on Don Whillans ' The Villain' was much better written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bush War, 25 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Land and Spirit (Paperback)
I am an ex Rhodesian and the events written in this book happened long after I had left the country. I have recently been very interested in what occured in the mid to late 1970s. This is one of the best books on the Rhodesian Bush War. It captures the difficulties endured by both the white and the black populations. I highly thoroughly enjoyed this book.
