    This is a very well written book It brings Africa alive as if you were there I was gripped and read it in 2 days The writer is unpretentious with fantastic powers of description The book is sympathetic and covers all aspects of the conflict He must surely be one of the best writers of this generation I really hope people read this book covering a very important and tragic crisis Excellent
