Many Irishmen have made a mark on history but few as profound as Mike Hoare – a name that carries many tags: soldier, legend, ‘Mad Mike’, mercenary commander, saviour of nuns, Congo, yachtsman, Seychelles coup, author, and gentleman. This is the story of a man born to a life of adventure and soldiering. It is also a story of perseverance, honour, and changing lives, while living dangerously. Read it – it won’t disappoint you!
This biography provides a fascinating insight to the turmoil of the Congo, also to the character of Hoare himself who personifies the well-mannered British officer class with a layer of scholarship and erudition on top of that. You could not imagine anything further from the low-grade, cut-throat mercenary. What also comes through is Hoare’s restless pursuit of adventure, whether in military conflict, yachting, visits to remote wild spots or motorcycling the length of Africa.
Highly recommend!! A great book about an very interesting man.
