Col. Mike Hoare's favorite book consisting of 21 short stories, giving new insight into the minds and hearts of the adventurers who became mercenary soldiers. It captures the spirit of mercenary soldiering.
"...Hoare, the legendary mercenary commander of Congo fame...does not fit the popular image of the mercenary who will fight for - or against - anyone for money.... In a concise, graphic way, he gives a feeling and flavour to the mercenary soldier that few others ever have...." (Peter Worthington, Editor, Ottawa Sun)

Superb stories from a little known conflict.unlike
Unlike most of the books I listen to this one is a compendium of individual stories; thus making it difficult to rank as it is a ery different type of book. Nevertheless it is. Well done giving the flovor of the war in the Congo and the horrors of African War.
The US soldier who took leave to go to the Congo and find a girl.
No, it is broken into vignettes and while I listened to several at a sitting the entirety would have been overwhelming.
Well worth listening stening to.
