Well written and detailed book well worth the read
A must be in any Bushwar book collection.Nothing changed,they still as tuff as their forefathers.
A really well written book. Once I started reading I had to get on and finish it. Highly recommend to anyone interested in the history of the Angolan conflict. A big salute to David Mannall.
I have read and reread this book. Dave Mannall has mastered the art of changing facts into a binding story line. This not only provides a good insight into the battle at ground level but somehow managed to carry across something of the atmosphere... the tention, fear, dust, diesel fumes, tranquility of the African bush, heat, mosquitos and flies. Well done!!. A salute to the 61Meg boys!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the account by Dave Mannall. Really well written presenting his personnel encounter of the happenings, trauma, the good and bad things experienced. Salute to those who were there, 61 mech and all the support battalions, tiffies and others. A cold fact no bullshit style was really appreciated with a vivid and moving account of how things were. Well done Dave Mannall, really enjoyed and ranks top of my list.
