Excellent study of the entire campaign with particular emphasis on the two armies' respective leadership. If you ever believed that Lee "phoned it in" at Gettysburg; this book pretty well proves it.

It describes his relationship with Nick du Toit a former member of 5 Recce of the SADF. Brabazon initially hires him as a bodyguard when he goes to Liberia to film the civil war there. They become unlikely friends. Du Toit a former member of EO later tells Brabzon about his involvement in a upcoming coup attempt in Equatorial Guinea and offers him the rights to film it. The coup fails and leaves Du Toit , Simon Mann and about 70 other former EO and/or SADF soldiers now turned mercenaries imprisoned in Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea. Oferall excellent read on the events in Western Africa in the late 1990's early 21st Century.
