I found this book to be a good read, if a bit light on historical context. The story of a distingushed special forces soldier in the former Rhodesia, it offers rare insights into that former country's Selous Scouts and Rhodesian Light Infantry. The retelling of several covert missions run in Mozambique are particularly interesting. I found it admirable that the author allowed the Selous Scouts' commander to make comments on portions of the book that put the commander in bad light. As a personal memoire, it tells the story of a somewhat impetuous lad who often found himself in hot water, but who soldiered on and eventually became a well-respected senior NCO and warrant officer. Although a somewhat light read, it makes a great companion piece to other books written on the Rhodesian experience and is recommended reading.
