Publisher's Summary

Col. Mike Hoare describes how his 4 Commando supported Moise Tshombe's breakaway state of Katanga against both the UN forces, and the Baluba tribesmen who used poison arrows, pit traps, marijuana, spells, jungle drums...and even reorted to ritual torture and cannibalism.

Critic Reviews

"Mike Hoare...is the twentieth century's most famous mercenary soldier and, beleve it or not, the most literate, witty, touching writer on this dark and strange subject...." (Bill Guthrie, PhD and former executive editor at Soldier of Fortune magazine)
