Product description

Review

"By so eloquently telling the story of Fred Marafono and his kinship with the principal defender of Sierra Leone, Sam Hinga Norman, Hamish Ross has told our story and the story of the “Land that we love, our Sierra Leone”. It may well be the first and perhaps only detailed account of the war from the points of view of those who fought on the side of the people and government of Sierra Leone. The book is as inspiring as it is informative.  It leaves us with the question we have all asked ourselves over and over: What if?  What if there had been no Fred Marafono, no Peter Penfold, no Hinga Norman?  Would there be today a place called Sierra Leone?" -- Alfred Munda SamForay, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Review

"Hamish Ross’s excellent book, ‘From SAS to Blood Diamond Wars’, reveals the exploits of Kauata ‘Fred’ Marafono, the Fijian ex-SAS soldier who became involved in the 11year rebel war in Sierra Leone. In the SAS one talks of ‘crossing the river’ for someone. Throughout his time in Sierra Leone, Fred Marafono established a close bond with Sam Hinga Norman. He was someone Fred crossed the river for and Hamish Ross’s book is as much about Sam Norman as it is about Fred Marafono." -- Peter Penfold Former British High Commissioner to Sierra Leone.
