What a stimulating and excellent biography of one man's war. I recommend it to all would be military historians. I was amazed that he remained a 2nd Lt despite all the deaths of his comrades and his obvious good performance as an officer.
The book provided interesting new information on the colonization of North America. I would have liked more detail and information on the source of the facts given. Without these it is difficult to take the history too seriously.
I was good to read about the human side of soldiering rather than the details of battles fought. Took me back to my service although in a different army and countries. Soldiers are the same in all British style armies giving their all in the most difficult of situations, humorous and generous. A book all former soldiers will love not just those with a connection with Rhodesia.
An poorly written book that lacks information and ideas about what has to be done. I don't recommend it for anyone who is looking for ideas ao what drills ect to do. It reads like an advertizing brochure for the author.
