    A very interesting look into the journey of one man journey through life The author describes his life from birth in Africa growing up in Canada journeying to South Africa and joining the RLI His commissioning and journey into the Selous Scouts the bush war and it's after math The author finishes off the story with his subsequent life in South Africa This book has it all action pathos tragedy and the unique humour of Rhodesians Recommended VERY highly
