    One thought on “Dead Leaves: Two Years in the Rhodesian War”

    1. An interesting and honest perspective, but when reading it you have to consider that the author was a washout soldier from officer training and two units before he straightened himself out enough to conduct himself properly. The author is very anti-war, which is neither surprising nor particularly detrimental to the book's quality; however, the author did seem to be continually at odds with himself, which does tend undermine his opinions.
