Mercenary pilot - a true story.
on 10 April 2012
African wars and mercenaries will always be with us. However, here is a true story of a well trained mercenary helicopter pilot who applies his skills to try and bring some sort of sanity and reason to the ongoing wars in Africa. Nellis (his nickname) was born and raised in Africa and therefor has an understanding for the fights and squabbles which so stains the image of this continent.
Trained in the 'old' South Africa by the South African Air Force, he eventually finds himself applying his know how to combat the forces plying their trade in the blood diamond industry - amongst others.
I found the book informative and to the point, telling it like it is. It will appeal to those readers who want a look behind the scenes, away from the fancy talk of the softly-softly brigade, getting some insight into the dark corners of modern day Africa.
Some editing errors, spelling and grammar, possibly only on the Kindle version - but still a good read.
