This is a story of redemption. Should be read in one breath.

A modern swashbuckling tale set in a modern-day conflict. A riveting read that will be hard to put down.
Should be Book of the Month Club and NY Times Top Ten.

Well done, riveting. A wonderful evocation of Ruark’s ‘Something of Value’ and the movie, ‘The Deer Hunter,’ with the bonus of insight into the development of the combat photographer.

If you want something that makes you think as well as to be entertained, you won’t be disappointed.
Not a typical war story, but one that makes it clear the author knows his subject intimately and isn’t afraid to share. Intelligent and thought provoking about so much more than war.
Masterful writing. The comments about race a reflection of the society in which we live.
Great book! Chet Green is a consummate writer with an expertise in description and phonetically vernacular dialogue. A well-written, -edited and -researched novel with a social-issue message.
Well written and well researched with an excellent story line. Sad that little has really changed in the Horn of Africa in the 40 years since the time of the story.
