In 1989, deep in the South American jungles of Suriname, a former commando and Falklands War veteran discharged from the SAS found himself with a group of contract soldiers training a rebel army against a violent dictator regime.Things were not so clear cut in this war-torn country and as cracks began to appear in finding out who had the moral high ground, cracks also began to appear in the team itself.It seemed the leader of the group had other agendas which he was keeping from the mixed bag of former British commandos and French Foreign Légion soldiers.Now, as all-out war has got ever closer, this becomes increasingly difficult for the author, as he too, has not been totally truthful with the others.
This book will Blow You Away..!! It’s Awesome, I have never, in my life read a book from cover to cover in one day..until now. It’s a Must Read..!!
Just finished reading this book. A great read and honest account of Soldiering in a murky world of freelance military work. As an ex- Soldier I loved hearing the slang and banter again and I highly recommend reading this book!!
Totally recommend this book, the author is a great storyteller who makes you feel you are right there in the jungle with him. It was really interesting to also learn about Suriname and what life was like there in 1989. This book really opened my eyes, and I found it a real page turner.
Read this book in a couple of days which is a first for me in a long time .Neil takes you on the journey with him into situations that you can visualize but your pleased you are not there. Can totally recommend this book.
